The State Council of China hasn’t rejected an urbanization proposal drafted by the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), said the director of the commission on Friday on the sidelines of Premier Li Keqiang’s official visit to Switzerland.

The commission has been studying plans to further the nation’s urbanization drive and hasn’t submitted any urbanization plan to the State Council yet, said Xu Shaoshi, denying earlier reports that Premier Li Keqiang has rejected an urbanization proposal from the NDRC.

China will continue to actively and steadily advance its urbanization drive, putting people first and ensuring environmental protection, added the director.
