Short summary
This paper reviewed the air pollution control policies in China from 2005 to 2017. Then we gave an overall evaluation of the effects of these policies on PM2.5 pollution improvement in China from the perspective of satellite remote sensing. This paper can provide reference for future policy making of air pollution control in China.
