Pollution control and haze reduction is the top priority regarding people's daily lives and environment management. A conference was held in Xi'an International Trade & Logistics (ITL) Park on March 5 discussing this year’s plan and the task of pollution and haze control.

Li Yuan, Party secretary of the ITL administrative committee attended the conference and delivered a speech. The 2018 work plan of pollution control and haze reduction of Xi'an ITL Park was released at the conference.

The park will take efforts to carry out the work plan in nine sectors, including optimizing regional industrial structure, accelerating the adjustment of energy consumption structure, strictly controlling mobile source pollution and upgrading the technology for haze control.

Li noted that the report of the 19th CPC National Congress listed pollution prevention and control as one of the three critical battles to build a moderately prosperous society in all respects. The fight to defend the blue sky is the most important one in the battle against pollution.

The tasks of pollution control and haze reduction should be distributed to administrative committee's departments and supporting systems. Departments and enterprises should designate responsible people to push forward the tasks.

"The provincial and municipal governments pay high attention to the work of pollution control and haze reduction. We should take more efforts and measures to allow people to live in a good environment," Li said.

Li urged that pollution control and haze reduction should be carried through to the end with firm confidence. The park should reduce the use of coal and increase tree planting, strengthening the administrative accountability system.

Xi'an International Trade &Logistics Park had 177 days with excellent air quality in 2017, 15 more days than that in 2016.

The annual concentration of PM 10 and PM 2.5 ranked third and second among the city's development zones.
