The 2022 "China Times" event will be held from the 23rd to the 27th. Hamburg Mayor Peter Chencher said at the opening ceremony of the event that this year's event will focus on global climate change because it is of vital importance, and Europe and China need to cooperate on this issue. The event provided an opportunity to discuss this in depth.

Chencher said that although the current era is full of challenges and the world has become more complex, one thing is clear: in the global response to climate change, the EU and China are not competitors, but partners who share success or failure.

Cong Wu, the Chinese Consul General in Hamburg, said in his speech that this year's "China Times" focuses on the theme of "climate change", which is related to the destiny of mankind and is on the pulse of the times. Over the past ten years, China has achieved remarkable results in its green and low-carbon transformation. It has announced the goal of carbon neutrality at the peak of carbon emissions, and will complete the world's highest reduction in carbon emission intensity in the shortest time in world history. China is willing to join hands with all parties to more effectively respond to the challenge of climate change and protect our common home, the earth.

In addressing climate change, there is a lot of space for cooperation between cities. For example, Shanghai and Hamburg, which have established sister cities, are both port cities with developed shipping industries. International shipping also has a timetable and goals for decarbonization. cooperation in the field.

Danielle Frerichs, director of the Heidelberg Offshore Innovation Center in Guangzhou Development Zone, told reporters that Europe and China can complement each other in the field of climate and environmental protection. "China's new infrastructure, technology, business models and systems can Directly put into use, Germany and Europe can learn from practical projects in various fields in China, and find practical, effective and advanced solutions faster. On the other hand, China can also learn from Germany and Europe in the past few decades in environmental protection, especially It is the experience in water and soil protection, benefit from it, and achieve your own climate and environmental protection goals faster."

The "China Era" activity started in 2006 and was sponsored by the Hamburg City Government, aiming to promote exchanges between German and Chinese people through various cultural activities. In addition to seminars, this year's event also includes exhibitions, concerts and more.
