Heavy snow good sign for blue-sky project

The heavy snow that arrived over the weekend bodes well for Beijing's blue-sky project that plans to have 266 days with relatively good air quality this year, six more than the target for last year, according to the Beijing municipal environmental protection bureau.

"The snow can purify the air and improve the air quality," said Lu Chuan, the spokesman from the bureau. The city has been running the blue-sky project aiming to improve its air quality for 12 years.

Statistics from the bureau show that the city recorded 285 blue-sky days, about 78 percent of the whole year.
