Jia Qinglin, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), a political advisory body, asked political advisers to come up with some answers to climate change as he presided over a lecture given to the Standing Committee of the 11th CPPCC National Committee.
Xie Zhenhua, Vice Minister of the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) and one of China’s leading negotiators for climate change talks, gave committee members a lecture about key climate change issues and China’s stands on them.
Jia said while the global climate change is a major challenge for all countries, China’s handling of the issue could impact on the country’s overall economic and social development as well as the people’s interests.
EnglishNews.cn reports Jia asked the members to conduct further studies in accelerating the adjustment of economic growth mode, industrial and energy structure, and controlling greenhouse gas emissions so as to offer advice to help the country to cope with problems in its development.
