Webinar: Sino-Danish Government-to-Government Cooperation within the Energy and Maritime Sectors
As part of the Comprehensive Strategic Partnership between Denmark and China, a joint work programme has been established which builds upon elements of the development strategies of the two countries and covers various areas and mechanisms of ongoing bilateral cooperation. On climate and energy the cooperation intends to engage in government-to-government cooperation to promote the common
climate agenda and the transition to a low carbon pathway. Furthermore, the Embassy together with the Danish Energy Agency and the Danish Maritime Authorities also engages in two strategic sector cooperations within the Energy & Maritime sector.
The strategic sector cooperation within energy has two tracks on clean heating and quality offshore wind both focusing on sharing Danish regulatory and framework experiences in an effort to support a path towards a green transition in China. For example by identifying means on how to replace heavy coal dependent systems with green and clean sources within district heating as well as sharing Danish authorities experiences in implementing offshore wind in a cost-efficient manner. The maritime strategic sector cooperation promotes cooperation with the Chinese authorities on safe and green shipping through e.g. exchange of best practice and cooperation on international regulation within maritime safety, green shipping as well as green shipbuilding. In addition, it aims to improve the framework conditions for Danish shipping
companies and promote opportunities for Danish maritime companies in China.
Participants will be introduced to the various programme activities and hear how the business community plays a role in and benefits from the cooperation.
