EPA Unveils New Chinese Internet Resource

The United States Environmental Protection Agency has launched a new Chinese website as part of its effort to provide environmental information in multiple languages.
Chinese is the third most widely-spoken language in the U.S., after English and Spanish. More importantly, many Chinese businesses are looking to either export to the United States or partner with American firms, so this portal will prepare those businesses for health and environment concerns that are important in America.
The new site compiles EPA Chinese-language materials on a wide variety of issues from lead poisoning prevention, energy efficiency, and clean water to proper management of pesticides.
The new portal should also enhance environmental cooperation between the United States and China. EPA has a robust program of cooperation with several Chinese governmental bodies to address threats to human health and the environment, including initiatives on air pollution, water pollution, and management of hazardous waste and toxic substances. EPA also collaborates with China on research, policy development, and buildup of environmental enforcement capability.
