On June 5, Jiangsu held special activity themed on harmonious co-existence between humans and nature to celebrate 2021 Environment Day in Nanjing. Vice Governor Pan Xianzhang addressed the activity.
Pan Xianzhang stated the importance of this event to the fight against pollution and to the strengthening of concerted efforts in eco-environment protection. Recent years have witnessed significant progress in Jiangsu in pollution control and environmental protection as we act on the instructions of General Secretary Xi Jinping. Jiangsu outperformed the national set standards of nine tasks in improving environmental quality as well as the reduction of major pollutants discharge and of carbon emission intensity during the 13th Five Year Plan Period, which led to public’s rising satisfaction with the environment.
Pan Xianzhang made the instruction that relevant departments at all levels in Jiangsu must act in line with Xi Jinping Thought on Ecological Protection and the new development philosophy in the new stage, invest greater efforts in pollution control, and promote green and low-carbon development to achieve new progress in eco-environment protection and ensure continuous improvement in environmental quality. Pan said, good environment will benefit all and should be sustained by all. Each and every one should be a protector of the environment and a contributor to its improvement, so that in the end we can all be beneficiaries of a beautiful home with blue sky, clean water, and green mountains.
