China offers rewards to six regions to fight air pollution

--FILE--A cyclist rides on a road in heavy smog in Handan city, north Chinas Hebei province, 24 January 2013. China said on Monday (14 October 2013) it would give rewards amounting to 5 billion yuan (US$816.91 million) for curbing air pollution in six regions where the problem is serious, underscoring government concern about a source of public anger. The Finance Ministry said the regions eligible for the rewards were Beijing and its neighboring city of Tianjin, the provinces of Hebei, Shanxi and Shandong, as well as the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. The awards would be made at the end of the year and would be determined by pollution reduction targets, investment in tackling the problem and falls in PM 2.5, which are especially bad for health, the ministry said on its website.
