China and the European Union (EU) on Monday agreed to enhance cooperation in the uphill battle against global climate change.

The move came as a joint statement on climate change was issued after visiting Chinese Premier Li Keqiang met with EU leaders in Belgium.

According to the document, the two sides agreed to promote cooperation on climate change and developing a cost-effective, low-carbon economy while maintaining robust economic growth.

They also reach consensus to further enhance policy dialogue and practical cooperation on the two sides’ transformation to a resource-efficient, green, low-carbon and climate-resilient economy and society.
