Chinese Vocabulary of the Day

免除
mian3chu2
(1) dismiss (from office); (2) avoid, prevent; (3) exempt, abolish.

In a sentence:

山东省邹平县委、县政府1月初作出决定,从今年起全县全部免除农业税。邹平是滨州市第一个全部免除农业税的县

In a meeting in January, the Zouping County (Party) Committee decided that from now one the agricultural tax would be abolished. Zouping is the first county in Binzhou city to abolish the tax.

(Alert readers will realize that I have been misspelling Binzhou as ‘Bingzhou.’ Apologies. I will correct this once I am in a country where access to blogger is not limited.)
