China launched a strategic environmental impact assessment across its three major economic powerhouses, the Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP) said Tuesday.
The assessment will cover the northern Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, as well as the Yangtze River Delta and the Peal River Delta in the south.
Pan Yue, vice minister of the MEP, said these regions, while being substantial economic growth drivers, were infamous for their environmental problems, and this had stirred the public to demand change.
