BEIJING, June 7 (Xinhua) -- Senior Chinese and U.S. officials are eyeing more cooperation on low carbon development after the opening of a high-level meeting on Tuesday.
Green growth is high on China's development agenda, said State Councilor Yang Jiechi at the Second U.S.- China Climate-Smart/ Low-Carbon Cities Summit, attended by senior representatives from over 50 Chinese and U.S. cities.
Yang called for more concrete cooperation between Chinese provincial regions and cities and their U.S. counterparts, the key practitioners of low-carbon growth, to benefit both countries and the rest of the world.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said U.S.-China low-carbon cooperation will contribute to the sustainable growth of the two economies and the global fight against climate change.
