Xinhua, the Chinese government’s official news outlet, noted that the National People’s Congress, at the end of its annual session today, endorsed the new line-up of China’s Central Government ministers. Turns out that the new Minister is also the old one — Zhou Shengxian, who has led China’s MEP since 2005. (He had been re-nominated as part of the new set of ministers by new Premier Li Keqiang.) For purposes of continued US-China (MEP-US EPA) environmental cooperation, that should be welcome news, since he and former Administrator Lisa Jackson had a positive and strong relationship. However, Zhou is currently just shy of 64 and will be required to leave his post when he reaches the mandatory retirement age in a few years.
