China will further cooperation with northern European countries on developing a green urbanization market in China, aiming to strengthen international coordination and establish green and sustainable development partnerships according to officials from both sides.

"Under the current economic and social background, green and sustainable development is the key for all countries to share the benefits of globalization," according to Hu Sishe, vice-president of the Chinese People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries.

CPAFFC, together with the China "Urban-townization" Promotion Council, have organized a conference with a theme of sustainable development and international cooperation in green urbanization, aiming to establish a green and sustainable development mechanism.

"Cooperation is vitally important for solving all of the challenges the world has faced in the global ecological environment," said Laurent Fabius, chairman of the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris, who was invited to the conference.

The current urbanization in China will be the world's biggest, fastest and most influential process of its kind in the world, incubating a huge potential market based on different levels of city clusters in China, said Zheng Xinli, vice-president of CUPC.

Incorporating the Chinese green urbanization market with northern Europe's sustainable development technology and innovation will provide a new path for both sides' future development, he said.

China and northern European countries already established cooperation partnerships in 2017 in the fields of entrepreneurship and business, sustainable development, research and education and cultural communication, said Svein Thorstein Berg, managing director of Nordic Innovation, who looks forward to deeper cooperation between China and northern European countries.
