A senior researcher close to China's energy policy making circle said today that the Chinese government will soon start to levy fuel tax.

"The announcement will come very soon, and actually specific plans have already been suggested to the government long ago," Han Wenke, director general of the Energy Research Institute of National Development and Reform Commission, told China Daily this morning.

"The government has repeatedly said that it will look for an appropriate time to start levying the fuel tax, and now this is soon to come," he added, but without specifying further details.
