Reuters News Quotes Alex Wang on Proposed Boost to Chinese Environmental Protection

A February 10 Reuters article reported that the Chinese government is considering a proposal to bolster the authority of its Ministry of Environmental Protection.

The article quoted Professor Wang on the limits of the current Chinese approach: "China will not be able to stop polluters from violating the law without stronger penalties....  For companies making billions of yuan in profit each year, these fines have been less than negligible."
