2019 is the key year to fight for pollution prevention and control and to build a well-off society in an all-round way. The second round of central ecological environment protection supervision will be launched. The intensified supervision of air pollution prevention and control in key regions, environmental protection of centralized drinking water sources, and cracking down on serious illegal acts of solid waste and hazardous waste will also be carried out in an integrated manner.
In fact, before the National Conference on Eco-environmental Protection, the biggest bottleneck of the environmental protection sector — “money shortage” has shown some improving. In November 2018, policies and solutions to the problems of equity pledge and debt risk of private enterprises came out one after another, and central and local governments, market institutions, state-owned capital and social funds flooded into the environmental protection market.
It is worth noting that the National Conference on Eco-environmental Protection also revealed that in 2019, it will strengthen the research and formulation of major strategic planning policies, promote the “14th Five-Year Plan” of eco-environmental protection and advance forward-looking research on the strategy of eco-environmental protection towards beautiful China.
We believe that the environmental protection industry is changing from the extensive development mode in the past to a new stage of high-quality development. Beginning in 2019, after 2-3 years of remodeling, a new pattern of state-owned enterprises leading investment and private enterprises focusing on market segmentation technology will be formed. In 2019, the main driving factors, funds side expectations and industrial policies of the environmental protection industry will be improved.
