Panel discussion:
Pollution is something that every single one of us can relate to here in Beijing, so this may come as good news for many of our listeners - or it may not once we've discussed in depth.The Chinese cabinet recently passed 10 'tough-measure' in a bid to reduce pollution in major cities and across the country.These include a target to reduce pollution emissions by at least 30 per cent in heavypolluting industries by the end of 2017-a target that is more ambitious than any in the past.
