Li Bin, vice-chairwoman and secretary-general of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) National Committee, led an inspection of biodiversity protection in the Shennongjia forestry district in Central China's Hubei province from June 7 to 9.
The inspection team, made up of non-CPC members of the Committee on Population, Resources and Environment of the CPPCC National Committee, visited a wetland park, the Jinhou Mountain, a golden snub-nosed monkey research base, a nature museum and the Shennongjia national park administration, where they learned about the efforts made by the local government to protect biodiversity in the district.
At the symposium with local representatives, the team members recognized the province's successful experience in protecting biodiversity over the past several decades and spoke highly of its planning and key projects.
To address difficulties and challenges in biodiversity protection in the forestry district, the members suggested conducting background surveys, realizing the value of ecological products, and strengthening sci-tech research and personnel training.
They also vowed to better perform their duties in offering suggestions and building consensus, as well as publicizing the progress of China's ecological civilization.
