By Zheng Jinran | China Daily | Updated:2017-09-28 07:13Blaming environmental measures for increases only rattles marketThe Ministry of Environmental Protection has dismissed claims that Chinas tough measures to rein in pollution, including environmental inspections and factory closures, have dampened industrial production and pushed up prices of industrial products.Scheaffler, a German company that makes bearings and precision components for the auto industry, estimated last week that the closure of its Shanghai supplier for pollution violations had cost the industry about 300 billion yuan ($45 billion).Some have claimed the companys statement shows that the nations strict pollution controls were harming economic growth.That allegation was dismissed on Wednesday by Cui Shuhong, director of environmental impact assessments for the ministry, who insisted that supply and demand are still the main factors that dictate market prices.Any statement that directly blames rising product prices on environmental protection measures “only rattles the market”, he said, adding that economic data from several cities prove that claims of a slowdown based on Scheafflers financial estimates are groundless.In the first eight months, the added value of companies with annual revenue over 20 million yuan increased 6.7 percent year-on-year, while the national unemployment rate in the second quarter hit its lowest level since 2008. Both figures indicate steady growth, Cui said.In addition, official data show that the 15 provincial areas visited by high-level environmental inspectors this year saw greater growth among companies with annual revenues over 20 million yuan than for such companies in the 16 regions that were not inspected.”The output of iron and steel, nonferrous metals, glass and cardboard in the regions visited increased faster than the national average,” Cui said, adding that the data show the inspection did not affect industrial production.”The stricter controls to combat pollution will phase out polluting companies – which disrupt the market order by not having the necessary equipment to reduce pollution – and promote healthy economic growth,” he said. “So it protects the environment and public health.”The crackdown on polluters in Xingtai, Hebei province – which has been one of the worst cities for smog since 2013 – has improved the air quality, and the citys economic growth is now ranked No 1 among the 11 big cities in the province.Meanwhile, Jining, a large coal consumer in Shandong that relies on heavy industry, has shut down many polluting companies, yet the industrial output and revenue increased much faster than the provincial average in the first seven months.Cui said the two cities demonstrate that healthy and faster economic growth can happen along with an improved environment and other cities should follow their StoriesDelivery platforms urged to reduce plastic pollutionDesigner of filter to protect babies from pollution targets Chinese marketMethods coming to halt pollution data tamperingTop legislator wants better law enforcement of solid waste pollution5,763 officials accountable for pollutionNorth China moves to fight winter air pollutionChinas pollution-ridden province keeps close watch on air pollutantsTo truly reduce air pollution, Beijing needs to take some innovative stepsPhotoExhibition details progress of country over past 5 yearsLeft-behind boy gets stuck in 20-cm-wide gapChinas homemade Rainbow 5 drone completes live-fire exerciseChina-Mongolia Expo held in HohhotWorlds highest highway tunnel opens in SW ChinaImages: Changes in Tiananmen Square decorations for National DayHighlights from Xis speech at a workshopChinas path to global leadershipLatestChengdu offers big money to lure talent7 provinces meet air quality targetsDelivery platforms urged to reduce plastic pollutionOfficial: Concert chaos wont disrupt tiesNation focuses on innovation ecosystemState Council NewsPremier Li meets with US commerce secretaryPreferential policy extended for cross-border e-commerceExclusiveStudent entrepreneurship on the riseFive years on: How law rules in the countryChinas path to global leadershipEditors picksDelivery platforms urged to reduce plastic pollutionReward offered for lost balloonTen photos you dont wanna missTen photos from across China: Sept 15-21SpecialCelebrating 90th anniversary of PLAs establishmentAchievements made under Xis leadershipBACK TO THE TOPHOMECHINAWORLDBUSINESSLIFESTYLECULTURETRAVELWATCHTHISSPORTSOPINIONREGIONALFORUMNEWSPAPERChina Daily PDFChina Daily E-paperMOBILECopyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
