Shanghai

China is attempting to become a leader in clean technology

中國國家媒體說,政府正在努力對付由於國家快速經濟發展而帶來的環境污染問題。據新華社報道,中國正在引進新措施來鼓勵綠色環保產業。以下是 BBC 記者 Martin Patience 從北京發回的報道:

China is the world's biggest polluter. But toxic smog in its cities is increasingly generating enormous public anger.

Now the authorities say they want the green industries to have a turnover of more than $700bn by 2015. They're offering tax breaks and subsidies to promote growth and innovation within the sector.

It's the latest move by the government to curb pollution. Last month, the authorities ordered hundreds of steel, paper and leather factories to shut down production lines that were causing high levels of pollution.
