The Macro Strategic Research Report on China's Environment, the first of its kind in China, was officially released at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing on April 21.

The report took over 50 academicians from the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE) as well as hundreds of experts three years to compile.

CAE President Zhou Ji said that according to the research results, although China's environment has improved in some regions, the overall situation continues to deteriorate, which places the country under increasing environmental pressure. The country's overall environmental quality has not reached a turning point.

Zhou Shengxian, chief of the Ministry of Environmental Protection, said that the ministry will make efforts to achieve the strategic objectives in the report through cooperation with many other governmental agencies. According to the report, emissions of major pollutants should be considerably reduced by 2020, and the environmental safety should be effectively guaranteed. By 2030, the aggregate emissions of all pollutants should be significantly reduced, and the overall environmental quality should be greatly improved. By 2050, the environmental quality should match the people's high quality of life as well as the country's status as a modern and powerful socialist country.
