BEIJING, May 26 (Xinhua) -- China on Wednesday launched an inspection of how local authorities are promoting cleaner production. During the one-month inspection, supervision teams -- acting directly under the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC) -- will be sent to Heilongjiang, Shandong, Hunan and Shaanxi to inspect the work of local governments in promoting cleaner production and to what extent key industries are following the Cleaner Production Promotion Law.

Meanwhile, standing committees of provincial-level people's congresses in 11 other provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities will conduct inspections in their own regions. "The inspection on the enforcement of Cleaner Production Promotion Law is a key part of the work for the NPC this year," top legislator Wu Bangguo stated in an official letter today. Wu, chairman of the NPC Standing Committee, hoped that the inspection would make government organizations and companies focus on increasing cleaner production and use the measure to promote the transformation of the economic growth pattern.

The Law, enacted in 2002, aims to promote cleaner production, increase the efficiency of the utilization of energy resources, and reduce pollutants.
