China | Jiangsu to Close Thousands of Chemical Enterprises by 2020

On April 1st, Jiangsu’s provincial government issued a draft plan to slash the number of chemical production enterprises and chemical parks over the next 3 years. The plan is to eliminate chemical enterprises with low safety standards and severe pollution issues. The plan comes just several days after a deadly blast which killed 78 people in Xiangshui County, Yancheng in Jiangsu Province on 21 Mar 2019.

The draft plan is now under internal discussion and hasn’t been published yet.
