Specifically, the iron and steel, coal sector to the focus of production capacity work has its own focus.

In the iron and steel field, there are five main aspects: first, resolutely deal with "zombie enterprises" and speed up the implementation of the overall exit and shutdown. The second is to strictly implement environmental protection, quality, energy consumption, water consumption, safety and other laws and regulations and relevant industrial policies, and increase law enforcement and inspection of violations of laws and regulations in the steel industry. Third, strict steel production capacity replacement and project filing, to prevent production capacity "while decreasing and increasing". The fourth is to improve the reporting and response mechanism, establish an accountability mechanism, strengthen joint law enforcement, continue to carry out satellite remote sensing monitoring, and find, investigate and deal with the resurgence of "ground steel", the resumption of production of excess capacity that has been resolved, and new production capacity in violation of laws and regulations. Together, report together, pay close attention to negative models, and maintain a high-pressure situation. The fifth is to improve the policy environment conducive to the implementation of mergers and reorganizations, and promote the iron and steel industry to resolve excess capacity and optimize the industrial layout in accordance with the principles of enterprise entities, government guidance, and market-oriented operation.
