The Warsaw Climate Change Conference on Nov.8 enters week two of the event. Xie Zhenhua, head of the Chinese delegation and deputy director of the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), and Liu Zhenmin, vice minister of Foreign Affairs, will attend the conference.

From November 11 to 16, week one of the event, the conference produced a lot of talk but little substantial progress. Furthermore, Australia and Japan announced a serious backtracking on their earlier targets and policies.

The negotiations of this first week were restricted to technical issues related to the different bodies of the protocol, like the financial mechanisms, adaptation committee and technology mechanisms. The aim has been to clean up agenda so that the second week can focus on truly political issues.
