BEIJING, Sept.2 (Xinhua) — Representatives from China’s top government bodies met on Saturday in Haikou, the capital city of southern China’s Hainan province, to discuss a draft plan on integrated local development.
The plan is part of the trial program that aims to coordinate the planning system on a provincial level in order to eliminate incompatibilities between plans issued by different government departments.
After the meeting, Hainan local government will make some revisions and a consultation to seek views before publishing the final plan.
Such efforts by Hainan and relevant experiences will be introduced to other parts of China if proven successful.
In an attempt to improve policy coordination, China in June selected Hainan to pilot a trial program encouraging rational use of land and better environmental protection. (Edited by Ding Lei, email@example.com)
