The money—equal to more than 1.5 percent of China’s annual gross
domestic product (GDP)—will be used to control water pollution, improve
air quality in China’s cities, increase solid waste disposal and reduce
soil erosion in rural areas, according to the National Development and
Reform Commission (NDRC).
