En­ergy co­op­er­a­tion urged for China, Brazil

China Daily (Latin America Weekly) - - Page Two -

China and Brazil have a solid foun­da­tion of co­op­er­a­tion in the en­ergy sec­tor, and they need to boost co­op­er­a­tion on clean en­ergy, Chi­nese am­bas­sador to Brazil, Li Jinzhang, said in Rio de Janeiro on Thurs­day.

In ad­di­tion to oil and elec­tric­ity, “we need to boost co­op­er­a­tion on tech­nol­ogy and in­vest­ments in new, re­new­able en­ergy. We put a lot of trust in this co­op­er­a­tion,” Li told Xin­hua.

While at­tend­ing the South Amer­i­can Sem­i­nar on the Belt and Road De­vel­op­ment and Global En­ergy In­ter­con­nec­tion held here Thurs­day, the Chi­nese am­bas­sador stressed that there is po­ten­tial for Brazil-China co­op­er­a­tion on global en­ergy in­ter­con­nec­tiv­ity, es­pe­cially in clean en­ergy.

Li high­lighted the fact that Brazil has a clean en­ergy ma­trix, with a lot of nat­u­ral re­sources which ac­com­mo­date ex­ten­sive ex­plo­ration of hy­dro­elec­tric, wind and so­lar power.

Speak­ing of Brazil’s role in en­ergy co­op­er­a­tion in Latin Amer­ica, the Chi­nese am­bas­sador said, “Brazil-China co­op­er­a­tion is a strong role model for Latin Amer­ica and the en­tire world.”

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives in the field of re­new­able en­ergy from four coun­tries — China, Brazil, Uruguay and Chile — par­tic­i­pated in the meet­ing.
