The Federal Department of Foreign Affairs of Switzerland (FDFA) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for cooperation in energy efficient buildings with the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development (MoHURD) in China. The Ambassador of Switzerland to China Bernardino Regazzoni met with Ni Hong, Vice Minister of China’s Housing and Urban-Rural Development on November 24th and signed the agreement. Under the MOU, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, acting for FDFA, will strengthen project cooperation and exchange technological expertise in energy-efficient and zero-emission buildings with its counterpart from MoHURD. “It is a great opportunity for the two countries to sign an MOU on energy efficient buildings this year as we are celebrating the 70th anniversary of the diplomatic relations between Switzerland and China,” said Ambassador Bernardino Regazzoni. Switzerland and China, both signed the Paris Agreement, are committed to tackling Climate Change. The Federal Council of Switzerland plans to reduce its net carbon emissions to zero by 2050 whereas China has pledged to reach carbon neutrality by 2060.
