    Recently, Chinese Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE) jointly issued a notice on the work plan of air pollution control in the autumn and winter between 2018 and 2019 in Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei area (关于印发《京津冀及周边地区2018-2019年秋冬季大气污染综合治理攻坚行动方案》的通知), with a number of other State Council branches like the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) and Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), and some local provincial governments. According to the work plan, the Chinese government will ease up on the pollution control campaign and decrease pressure on local governments and industries in an effort to offset the negative impact on economic growth caused by the trade dispute.
