China's environment continued to see improvement in the last year thanks to comprehensive policies and measures, an annual report suggests, while the environmental authorities vowed to further enhance monitoring to reinforce long-term environmental improvement.

China's 339 cities on average enjoyed 86.5 percent of days of good air quality in 2022, surpassing the country's goal by 0.9 percentage points, according to the China Environment Report 2022 published by the Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE) on Monday.

Among the main pollutants, PM2.5 density was found at an average rate of 29 micrograms per cubic meter in China's 339 cities in 2022, a 3.3 percent year-on-year drop. Average O3 density was 145 micrograms per cubic meter, a 5.8 percent rise from 2021 rates, according to the report.
