China to launch anti-smuggling campaign


09:34, June 22, 2013

BEIJING, June 21 (Xinhua) -- A six-month nationwide campaign to combat smuggling will be launched from July, Chinese Vice Premier Wang Yang said on Friday.

Speaking at a symposium on the fight against smuggling in the city of Shenzhen in south China's Guangdong Province, Wang said the campaign will primarily target the smuggling of "hot" commodities and activities in "major" areas.

Wang said China is still facing an arduous task in cracking down on smuggling even though achievements have been made over the past few years.

Anti-smuggling is part of the sound development of a national economy, as well as in the interests of the country and its people, according to Wang.

Regional and systematic smuggling activities should be resolutely prevented, Wang added.
