ThinkChina Analysis: Time is up for Xi Jinping to make China greener
This analysis follows up on Professor Jørgen Delmans expectations to China’s 14th five-year plan.

He argues that Xi Jinping is now called out to make good on his 2060 carbon neutrality promise and to finally make a plan to phase out China’s dirty coal.
