The State Council approved an inter-department joint meeting system for land planning at the provincial level, as an effort to push forward pilot work in space planning in provinces.
According to the document, the joint meeting should promote the pilot program in provinces and study major issues encountered in the process under the lead of the State Council.
The joint meeting should also evaluate work results and promote successful practices. Meanwhile, it should study laws and regulations involved in space planning, and undertake other tasks from the central government.
Currently, the joint meeting is composed of the National Development and Reform Commission, Ministry of Land and Resources, Ministry of Environmental Protection, Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development, Ministry of Water Resources, Ministry of Agriculture, State Forestry Bureau, State Oceanic Administration, and State Bureau of Surveying and Mapping.
In the future, the joint meeting may bring in other members as needed.
