08:28, April 20, 2012

VIENNA, April 19 (Xinhua) -- The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and China agreed to expand cooperation in implementing multilateral environmental conventions and other areas of mutual interest.

A letter of intent was signed Thursday by Kandeh K. Yumkella, UNIDO Director-General, and Liang Chen, acting Director-General of the Foreign Economic Cooperation Office at China's Ministry of Environmental Protection.

In addition to strengthen cooperation of implementation of the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants and the forthcoming Mercury Convention, the two sides agreed to promote activities in climate change mitigation.

They also agreed to develop new programs to strengthen South-South and triangular cooperation in China's environmental protection area.

"In recent years, UNIDO's support to China has been overwhelmingly in the environmental field. This can be repeated in other countries," said Yumkella.

"UNIDO can help diffuse China's green solutions in the BRICS countries and other countries of the South, with a focus on clean technology and not just renewable energy," he added.
