At the recently-held 2018 Yunnan Provincial Environmental Protection Meeting, 98.2 percent of the days were of excellent air quality in the province last year. This ranked first in China National and provincial monitoring systems on at major rivers recorded excellent water quality rates of 82.6 percent, while major outbound and cross-border rivers registered water quality compliance rates of 100 percent. The Inter-Provincial Ranking of Green Development Index showed that Yunnan’s ecological protection index ranks second in China.
