Annual Policy Report 2019 – A New Era: Towards a New World of Green Prosperity

The year 2019 marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. It is a crucial year for winning the tough battle of pollution prevention and control and securing a decisive victory in building a moderately prosperous society in all respects. It also witnessed the start of drafting the 14th Five-Year Plan for Economic and Social Development. Faced with sluggish global economic growth and mounting downward pressure in the domestic market, China needs to find a new way out to implement its new development concepts, promote ecological civilization construction, enhance ecological and environmental protection and achieve high-quality development.

Against such background, CCICED held its 2019 Annual General Meeting with the theme of “A New Era: Towards a New World of Green Prosperity” to discuss issues on
green transition and high-quality development during the 14th Five-Year Plan Period. Han Zheng, Vice Premier of the State Council and CCICED Chairperson, pointed out at the
Closing Ceremony of the Annual General Meeting, that China will continue to embrace green development to pursue modernization characterized by harmonious coexistence between man
and nature, and contribute to global ecological security. It is agreed by Chinese and international CCICED Council Members that China’s economy has been transitioning from a phase of rapid growth to a stage of high-quality development. Such a transition will effectively address the contradiction between unbalanced and inadequate development and the people’s ever-growing needs for a better life, and promote ecological and environmental protection and sustainable development. Green development is a major component of high-quality development. Forming consensus on green development is the basis for the construction of ecological civilization.

As an annual publication, the Policy Report is based on the research outputs of CCICED in 2019. It presents the policy recommendations proposed by Chinese and international CCICED Council Members, Special Advisors, and experts, for the reference of decision makers of all levels, scholars and the public.
