PM supports positive green growth agenda for EU-China relations

25th February 2014

The Prime Minister has supported the call from The Prince of Wales’s Corporate Leaders Group, Aldersgate Group and E3G for ambitious initiatives on green growth as the UK implements commitments from the EU-China summit. 

The organisations sent a letter in November 2013 setting out the critical opportunity to align European and Chinese interests on the green economy, and formulate a new approach to the EU-China relationship which maximises mutual opportunities and better manages trade tensions. 

The PM recognised their incredibly useful work with Government departments to raise the issues and opportunities represented by liberalisation of green sectors and noted that all comments outlined in the letter were taken on board in preparation for the EU-China Summit. He advised that these are reflected in the resulting EU-China 2020 Strategic Agenda for Co-operation.
