China's Green Development

China has become a world leader in the transition to green energy and is now the dominant global force in environmental technology meaning other nations will have to step up if they want to compete in these sectors. 

Solheim said many western perspectives have been skewed by a spate of negative media reports but the reality is that china is at the forefront in eco-friendly developments with the country being the primary global producer of solar panels and batteries which are powering new energy vehicles worldwide.

With the world's second-largest economy striving to peak carbon dioxide emissions by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2060 Solheim hailed China's environmental aims and also highlighted the example of the Southern City of Shenzhen which rolled out a fleet of all-electric buses over a decade ago as a sign of the country's commitment to going green.
