Green Economy Debate with Columbia's President Santos

22nd November 2011

The AG joined a UK delegation to discuss the green economy with Colombia's President Juan Manuel Santos Calderón, Environment Minister Pearl and Foreign Minister Holguin, during the President's visit to London this week.

The meeting took place at the British Council one week before the next round of climate change talks at Durban. Both the UK and Colombia are active proponents of a legally binding deal on climate change, with Colombia making up a significant proportion of global forestry as well as being an important emerging economy.

The UK delegation included AG's Executive Director, Andrew Raingold and AG member Andrew Slight, Head of External Affairs at PepsiCo.
