Special Report:   2007 NPC & CPPCC sessions

The transformation of China's economic growth pattern has become a major concern at the ongoing NPC session. Instead of a blind pursuit of GDP growth, China's central government has called for a scientific development of the country's economy. Major focuses are saving energy and controlling pollution. CCTV reporter Mao Xuzhi interviewed an NPC deputy for his insights.

Premier Wen Jiabao has admitted in his work report that China failed to reach its energy saving and pollution control target set a year ago. What is the response from the NPC deputies?

CCTV reporter speaks with Mr. Zhang Qunshan, a former official in charge of energy work in Southwest China's Guizhou Province.

Q1. Mr. Zhang, in your opinion, what leads to China's failure of energy consumption per GDP?

Q2. China is labelled as the world's second biggest polluter, next to the U.S. What impact will pollution have to China's long-term development?

Q3. To tap renewable energy is a way to meet the country's demand. However, the renewable market is still very small in China. Why?
