Beijing, June 14 (People's Daily Online)--On June 12, 2012, foreign Ministry spokesperson Liu Weimin held a regular press conference.

Q: The city of Wuhan was shrouded by fog yesterday and some local foreigners are expressing concern with Wuhan's air quality. How do you respond?

A: I'll leave the question of air quality to environmental protection authorities. The issue of air quality is indeed a severe challenge in China's economic and social development, and China is endeavoring to improve it. Given that China is in the preliminary stage of industrialization, resolving the air quality issue will not be done overnight and requires joint efforts of the whole society.
