He made the remarks Friday at the Eco-Forum Global, Guiyang that opened on July 27 in Guiyang, capital of Guizhou province.
One of the projects is an emigration plan launched this year, under which 1.5 million residents who live in forested areas will move to townships and industrial zones to improve ecological conditions inside forests, and at the same time, residents will be offered jobs.
“Ecological improvement requires everyone’s hard work, but it also needs us to cooperate, sharing opportunities and facing challenges together,” Zhao said.
