Recently, WASHINGTON reporter survey found that the government did not follow policy Fengrun notice issued under provincial levels of government to handle, but separately developed "to production standards," so that the original has been included in the provincial government need to eliminate the backward production capacity and capacity from illegal demolition. In this regard, deputy director of Development and Reform Bureau Song Junhua said Fengrun, provincial and municipal levels related to the capacity of policy guidance is the "path", not the specific implementation steps.
For this practice, WASHINGTON reporters get in touch with Tangshan Municipal Development and Reform Commission, but the council did not interview.
