On November 18, 2021, the Ministry of Transportation released the “14th Five-Year Plan for the Development of Comprehensive Transport Services”
The Plan states to actively promote the application of new/clean energy vehicles and vessels in transport services (NEV’s). It will also increase policy support for operation, access, parking and charging of NEV’s. The Ministry wants to accelerate the construction of the hydrogen refuelling infrastructure and new energy vehicles need to account for more than 80% of new bus and taxi purchases.
The plan also talks about strictly enforcing emission control regulations and vessel emission zone requirements. The government will encourage local authorities to adopt measures such as economic compensation, restricting the use of emissions, strengthening supervision and to promote the elimination of high-emission operating vehicles.
