The study session focused on ecological protection across the country, and it took place after Xi attended two recent high-level meetings on climate change.
In particular, Xi, also China’s president, proposed the concept of a community of life for man and nature while delivering a speech via video link at the Leaders’ Summit on Climate on April 22.
