Tianjin/China - Cooperation between the recycling industries in China and the European Union should be enhanced, officials at the 5th China-EU Round Table meeting have agreed.
Around 40 delegates from Europe and China attending the round table meeting called for the construction of a Sino-EU recycling board to strengthen communication of experiences and information.
Both China and Europe have recently adopted a comprehensive legal framework to promote waste management and green investments. Specific implementation measures are needed, especially given the economic crisis, which has also hit the sector.
Issues related to sustainable development of water will also be on the agenda of the next meeting (October 2009, Stockholm) and sustainable urban development will be discussed in the tripartite meeting with the Swedish Presidency. Quelle: European Economic and Social Committee / China Daily
