Vice-Premier Zhang Gaoli on Sept 3 called for stronger cooperation and coordination among developing countries in countering climate change.

Zhang made the remarks while meeting with participants for the meeting of Like Minded Developing Countries (LMDC) group on climate change.

The LMDC, a mechanism on global climate change negotiation, has made great contribution to the progress of international climate change negotiations and maintaining common interests of developing countries, Zhang said.

He urged closer contact and coordination to strengthen the voice of developing countries in the global governance system.

China is seeking sustainable development that balances economic growth with addressing climate change.

“We hope to enhance cooperation with developing countries in countering climate change, and offer our help and support for them,” he said.

A total of 44 participants from 20 countries and two international organizations attended the meeting held in Beijing.
