Context

Chinas central planning institutions have identified clean technologies as a major aspect of their development plans moving forward, set on predicating their economic growth on industries of the future. By definition, Chinas national plans are emblematic of aggressive green growth. Through the New China model adopted in 2015, China has expanded and revamped its efforts at international economic expansion, including strong renewed support for South-South Collaboration (SSC). Yet, while China has global aspirations toward harmonizing its rapidly developing green industry with overseas cooperation, these developments are still in their early stages. The problem remains that China lacks institutions, channels, and platforms through which to systematize and accelerate learning and sharing of green growth knowledge and projects overseas.

GGGIs mission, capacity, and membership make it an ideal partner for China in this endeavor. To address this need, in partnership with China, GGGI will seek to help the country maximize its Global and Regional Knowledge Sharing capacity with the goal of accelerating knowledge of green growth, investments, and projects in China, as well as other countries around the world.
