The year 2017 witnessed further development of environmental law in China. Environmental protection was affirmed in the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) held in October 2017, and was stressed in various parts of President Xi Jinping’s report to this CPC Congress. In line with the environmental protection policies, the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress revised some laws related to environmental protection, and the Supreme People’s Court also took some initiatives for environmental protection.
