From the perspective of the global economic environment, the world economy accelerated in the fourth quarter of 2016, and this momentum continued in 2017. According to the IMF's World Economic Outlook report in October 2017, the rebound in global economic activity continues to increase.

China's sustainable development has been upgraded to a new level of green development, and the focus of development is shifting from economies of scale to quality and environmental benefits.
