the executive meeting of the State Council revealed that this tax will be levied in due course

On November 18, 2016, Premier Li Keqiang presided over the executive meeting of the State Council on November 15, and adopted the plan of poverty alleviation, education and ecological environment protection formulated according to the 13th five year plan for national economic and social development

the meeting pointed out that promoting the construction of ecological civilization is a major national strategy and the urgent expectation of the people. The meeting adopted the 13th five year plan for ecological and environmental protection, which identified the following tasks: first, strengthen source control. We will fully complete the demarcation of the national ecological protection red line, improve the environmental standards and technical policy system, eliminate high pollution, and enable computers to realize various functions, and carry out data processing and analysis, print experimental results of high environmental risk processes, equipment and products, develop key technologies for resource conservation and recycling and complete sets of ecological governance and restoration technologies, and accelerate the development of energy conservation and environmental protection industries. The second is to vigorously implement the action plan for the prevention and control of air, water and soil pollution, take improving environmental quality as the core, implement total emission control for key areas, river basins and industries, speed up the implementation of a number of major ecological and environmental protection projects, carry out special treatment of pollution control and emission reduction in 15 key industries such as papermaking and building materials, implement a comprehensive emission plan for industrial pollution sources, and comprehensively rectify agricultural non-point sources and livestock and poultry breeding. Promote the protection and restoration of key areas and important ecosystems, and build a biodiversity protection network. Third, strengthen the whole process control of risks such as heavy metals, hazardous wastes, toxic and harmful chemicals. Fourth, improve the systems of enterprise emission permits, emissions trading, environmental damage compensation, etc., establish a diversified and cross regional ecological compensation mechanism, strengthen environmental protection supervision and law enforcement, timely levy environmental protection taxes, deepen the reform of resource and environmental prices, and create a green financial system. Build a beautiful China

it is reported that by giving play to the leading role of backbone enterprises, China's environmental protection industry has a huge potential market and is expected to become a new economic growth point in China. It is estimated that the annual growth rate of the added value of China's environmental protection industry during the 13th Five Year Plan period will exceed 20%, and the total investment is expected to reach 17 trillion yuan. However, at present, China has become the world's largest carbon emitter and resource consumer. The situation of environmental protection is still severe. The problems of heavy environmental pollution, great ecological damage and high environmental risks have become prominent weaknesses that restrict the sustainable and healthy development of China's social economy. The pollution of air, water and soil has not been effectively alleviated

Wu Qi, a researcher at China Minsheng Bank Research Institute, said that the protection of the ecological environment and the construction of a beautiful China need to rely on the legal system and market-oriented mechanism. First, we should speed up environmental legislation and implement the strictest environmental protection system. Although China has successively promulgated the "ten articles for atmosphere", "ten articles for water" and "ten articles for soil", the framework of the environmental protection legal system has not been established, and the quality of legislation and the implementation and supervision of regulations need to be further strengthened. In the follow-up, guoxinrong, Secretary General of titanium dioxide industry branch of China Paint Industry Association, once said to further improve the supporting laws and regulations of environmental protection and strengthen environmental law enforcement in key areas such as atmosphere, water, soil and hazardous waste. Second, we should promote environmental governance with the help of market-oriented mechanisms. For a long time, the concept of environment without price and cost has led to the tragedy of "public land" in China's ecological environment. The market-oriented mechanism is an effective way to solve the problems of insufficient investment in environmental protection, low investment efficiency and aggravated environmental pollution in China. As an important means of internalizing the external effects of the environment, enterprise emission permits and emissions trading are more suitable for China to adopt a market-oriented approach to environmental protection

many experts believe that the current pollution charge system in China is not perfect, the market trading of emission rights is not active, and the supervision of emission units by emission permits has not met the expected requirements. Therefore, in the next stage, we should focus on building a technical support system for emissions trading, establishing a long-term policy mechanism for emissions trading, and cultivating a standardized and reasonable emissions trading market to promote the improvement of enterprise emissions licensing and emissions trading systems

it is worth mentioning that the draft environmental protection tax law has been submitted to the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress for deliberation on this premise. According to the draft, the taxpayers of environmental protection tax are enterprises, institutions and other production operators that directly discharge taxable pollutants into the environment in the territory of the people's Republic of China and other sea areas under the jurisdiction of the people's Republic of China. Taxable pollutants are air pollutants and water experiments. Pollutants, solid waste and noise can be customized as required. Some experts said that the environmental protection tax takes the sewage charge standard as the lower limit, which means that the tax standard is higher than the current sewage charge. After the environmental protection tax is levied, it is expected that the annual scale of environmental protection tax can theoretically reach more than 50 billion yuan
