An excerpt from China.org.cn:
Today we see real progress being made in China's efforts to create a better environment and improve its air quality. Due to the commitment of the government and the people, independent studies like a recent one by the University of Chicago acknowledge the drastic decrease in airborne fine particles in many Chinese cities.
An array of measures has made the country's economic advancement sustainable and encouraged international players to take serious action in their fight against air pollution. The toughest program launched by China in its war against pollution was the "Air Pollution Prevention and Control Action Plan" in 2013. In just four years, the concentration of inhalable particles decreased by 10% to 25% in large cities.
China's capital city, Beijing, is spearheading the campaign against air pollution. In its 20-year battle against pollution, the city reduced PM 2.5 content (microscopic particles in the air which reduce visibility) by over 40%, according to a report by the Beijing Municipal Ecology and Environment Bureau.
