The article focuses on the environmental policy of the Chinese government. At the National People's Congress, Shanxi governor Yu Youjin said he wanted to ensure that the coal-producing province was not on the environmental blacklist. His comments were in response to plans on measuring the impact of pollution on economic growth through a green GDP index. Positive outcomes include an improvement in energy efficiency and funding for developments in technology in coal and chemical companies.
