Huang Yan, vice-minister of housing and urban development, at the 2018 China-EU Conference on Sustainable Urbanisation

China and European countries have much to learn from each other in terms of urbanisation policies, technologies and experience, vice minister Huang said at the conference that was held in Beijing on the 12th December.

Huang went on to state that European countries have a long history of urbanisation, and have implemented many practices that China are eager to learn from, especially regarding policies on green, effective and sustainable urbanisation.

Furthermore, the vice minister said that China and EU countries face the same challenges of tackling global warming, natural disasters and developing clean energies, and that these tasks cannot be accomplished by a single country or region.
