This article deals with the white paper on environmental protection released by the Chinese government in 2006. Damage to China's environment is costing the government roughly 10% of the country's gross domestic product, according to the State Environmental Protection Administration. One of the key concerns is the prevention and control of industrial pollution. The country also saw one of its worst industrial accidents when an explosion took place at Jilin Petrochemical in November 2006.
