Abstract : China will push forward the construction of pilot national parks and draw a general plan for the development of national parks this year, according to the country's forestry authorities.

HEFEI, Jan. 13 (Xinhua) -- China will push forward the construction of pilot national parks and draw a general plan for the development of national parks this year, according to the country's forestry authorities.
