BEIJING, July 31 (Xinhua) -- Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli Monday urged solid efforts on air pollution control in north China in the coming fall and winter seasons.
China has made progress in the fight against air pollution in the first half of this year, but the situation in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region and other nearby areas remains grim and there are still weak links in air pollution control, especially in the fall and winter seasons, Zhang said at a meeting in Beijing.
Authorities should take targeted measures to prevent air pollution and tackle key problems, Zhang said.
