Invitation Sep. 28th --- How Green is China?

21 September 2017

The EU-Asia Centre invites you to a panel discussion on the state of the environment in China. Beijing is now a strong defender of the Paris Climate Change Agreement and a ‘Green China’ is now propagated by the government as a top priority. China has made remarkable progress in introducing Green technology and is working with the EU on several environmental projects. At the same time there are huge challenges in cleaning up the environment, not least due to years of neglect, the emphasis on economic growth and the heavy dependence on coal.

To discuss the current situation and future prospects the Centre is organising a panel on Thursday 28 September from 1700-1825 at the Press Club, 95 Rue Froissart, 1040 Brussels.
