Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli is representing China at the signing ceremony for the Paris Agreement at the United Nations in New York on Friday. China will be joining the United States, India and over 100 other nations in signing the agreement on the first day it is open for signing. China and the United States are the world’s two largest economies and greenhouse gas emitters, together accounting for 40% of global emissions, so it is significant that the two of them are joining together to sign the agreement, continuing the spirit of cooperation on climate change that they began with their first joint announcement on climate change in November 2014.
