Eco-civilization: China's blueprint for a new era
- 03 March 2014
In early March, 2014, China’s important yearly political consultation began, followed by the annual parliamentary sessions, known as Lianghui. Timed to coincide with these sessions, this new briefing interprets outcomes from China’s leaders’ last conference--the Third Plenary--which will shape the week’s discussions, where a specific implementation plan will be presented.
Our briefing, Eco-civilization: China's blueprint for a new era, provides international readers with an overview of key policy guidelines and priorities the country’s new leadership will adopt, focusing on its pioneering low carbon ‘eco-civilization’ concept, which will have a profound impact on China’s future economy.
This is the first time that eco-civilization has been elevated to such a high-level, not only in parallel with, but also cutting across economic, political, cultural, and social systems.
A more in-depth analysis is planned on the precise approaches and policies for China’s comprehensive reforming plan, following the Lianghui.
