Officials from China and Northern Ireland on Tuesday expressed their desire to boost cooperation on new energy innovation, amid the challenges of climate change and biodiversity loss.

Green and low-carbon transformation are guiding countries as they upgrade their economic structures, Chinese Ambassador to the United Kingdom (UK) Zheng Zeguang said at the China-UK/Northern Ireland Forum on New Energy Innovation.

The forum, which is being held at Queen's University Belfast on Tuesday and Wednesday, is particularly significant for cooperation between China and Northern Ireland, he added.

Meanwhile, Speaker of the Northern Ireland Assembly Alex Maskey said at the forum that in a globalized world, international cooperation is essential in order to address major challenges.

Global partnerships between businesses, academia and other institutions are often the driving force behind finding solutions and creating new opportunities, Maskey added. "There is always the potential to share experience and to learn from each other."

Lord Mayor of Belfast City Council Christina Black said that moving forward, the focus is on continuing to strengthen existing links with China, and creating pathways for new areas of cooperation such as investment and economic development.
