Shanghai, July 4 (CNA) When economic growth and environmental protection are in conflict, "we have to give up economic development because protection of the environment and sustainable development are more important than pursuing economic growth," Taipei Mayor Hau Lung- bin said Thursday. Source
The message of sustainable development is an important one as many developing nations along with developed ones seek ways to boost GDPs at the cost of the community. Nations which are looking to grow should focus on the long term and protect the natural resources that help sustain it's ecology. Finding industries other than animal agriculture, logging, and heavy, unregulated manufacturing is a reasonable way to plan for the best future possible!
