Sci-Tech Beijing to host Environmental Fair
Beijing is scheduled to host an international exhibit on environmentally friendly household products next October.
The exhibition, sponsored by the Ministry of Science and Technology, aims to encourage Chinese people and foreigners to promote technology exchange and trade of environmentally healthy products for residences.
According to Sun Qijun, a division chief of the China Science and Technology Exchange Center, continuously improving standards in China have made it urgent for people to pay attention to their own environments.
But a fine living environment does not stop with beautiful interior decoration, elegant furniture and a full range of modern household appliances. It also stresses the use of harmless materials and products, Sun said.
However, pollution produced by various household products account for about half of the city's pollution, according to the figures supplied by the center.
Therefore, China made this issue among it key focal points. Sun said China must create modern, comfortable and pollution-free living environments for all citizens.Printer-friendly Version In This Section
