For more about the issue, we are joined on the phone by Lin Boqiang - the director of the China Center for Energy Economics Research at Xiamen University. Hello, thanks for joining our discussion.

Q1: The new tax means it’s more expensive to develop natural resources. Many worry it will lead to an increase in gas and electricity prices and probably even CPI. Do you think these worries are well-grounded?

Q2: This is obviously good news for regions in the West of the country that enjoy abundant natural resources. How will the new tax help boost local economies and balance the economic development between the eastern and the western regions?
