SHIJIAZHUANG -- Authorities in Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei will conduct joint law enforcement in environment-related areas from 2019 to 2020.
That was learned from a working meeting, held Wednesday in Langfang of Hebei Province, on joint law enforcement involving ecology and environment in Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei.
The campaign is aimed at handling cases of cross-region environmental pollution and related violations.
The authorities will inspect industries, with priority going to polluters such as printing, furniture-making, medicine and pesticide, and rubber products. They will also inspect water resources in regional border areas.
China pledged to coordinate its efforts on environmental protection and economic development in 2019. It promised to push for better air quality with better regional coordination and heavy-polluter revamps, according to the Ministry of Ecology and Environment.
