HANGZHOU, June 5 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice Premier Han Zheng Wednesday attended an event for the 2019 World Environment Day in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province.

At the event, Han read President Xi Jinping's congratulatory letter and delivered a speech, stressing that the letter demonstrated the Chinese government's great emphasis on this year's event.

Zhejiang is where President Xi initiated the assertion that "lucid waters and lush mountains are invaluable assets," Han said, adding that selecting the venue in Zhejiang was of great significance in terms of environmental protection.

This year's theme "Beat Air Pollution" manifests people's aspiration and resolution to improve air quality, Han said.

Emphasizing that China was willing to cooperate with other countries in coping with global environmental problems, Han called for sharing pollution control experience and joint efforts in dealing with climate change.

While strengthening cooperation in protecting biodiversity, China and other nations should be devoted to the green development under the Belt and Road Initiative and facilitate global sustainable development, Han added. Enditem
