With the government’s promotion since last year of the 14th Five-Year Plan for Green Buildings, which focuses on key objectives such as enhancing the quality of green building development, steadily improving the energy efficiency of buildings and accelerating the industrialisation of new building technologies, China’s economic outlook and that of the industry is expected to be positive and maintain its growth momentum in 2021.
