BEIJING: Vice chairmen of China’s Central Military Commission (CMC) Xu Qiliang and Zhang Youxia, together with Cai Qi, secretary of the Beijing Municipal Committee of the Communist Party of China, participated in a tree-planting activity in Beijing Friday.
They were joined by other military officials, soldiers and Beijing municipal officials. The event took place in Lize Financial Business District of Fengtai District, with more than 800 trees planted.
Friday’s tree-planting marks the 38th consecutive year of CMC leaders’ collective participation in such events in China’s national capital city. Earlier, Chinese political advisors on Thursday attended a voluntary tree-planting activity in Beijing, as part of their efforts to contribute to building a Beautiful China.
The event was held at the Xishan National Forest Park in Beijing’s Haidian District, during which over 400 saplings of different types of trees were planted.
It was attended by vice chairpersons of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) and more than 100 staff members of the working organs of the CPPCC National Committee. The CPPCC National Committee working organs have consistently organized voluntary tree-planting activities in spring for years.
