The Climate Change Evaluation Capacity Seminar is being organised by the Academy of Macroeconomic research from the University of Beijing and will allow participants to examine evaluating climate change in developing countries, including economic opportunities that can be created and an introduction to climate change international cooperation and south-south cooperation.

“China continues to play an increasingly important role in the development of our country and our region. It is therefore critical that we take the time to carefully explore and understand the Chinese model of development and the various areas of impact that are important for our own national development. We are grateful for the opportunity and expect to leave with best practices that can be put to work in our own context and a greater appreciation of the Chinese people and their culture” said Floyd Green, president.

Green was chosen by the organising committee of the event to give the welcome address at the Business and Management seminar, on behalf of the 25 participants from 13 countries, at the opening ceremony which was held Thursday, September 6.
