China vows to speed up green, low-carbon development

BEIJING: China will speed up and promote green low-carbon development and be more efficient in its use of resources, the ruling Communist Party said in a communique published by state news agency Xinhua on Thursday.

The communique came after a senior Party meeting to deliberate on the contents of the country’s next five-year plan for 2021-2025.

Chinese President Xi Jinping recently pledged to steer the country to “carbon neutrality” by 2060, which is expected to require tough new targets in the new five-year plan.
