access for foreign capital and increase imports so that opening-up reaches a higher level.
Xi said in his keynote speech at the opening ceremony of the S

hlights the urgent need to properly handle hazardous waste management in the country.

eng, at a Jiangsu Tianjiayi Chemical Co Ltd plant. The accident also injured more than 600.
