LONDON, Sept. 3 (Xinhua) -- It is timely that representatives from the financial sectors of China and Britain have come together to discuss how to work together for new progress in green finance, Chinese Ambassador to Britain Liu Xiaoming said here Tuesday.

In his keynote speech at AFCA (Asian Financial Cooperation Association) International Forum for Green Finance, the ambassador described green finance as one of the new frontiers in curbing anti-globalization and tackling global challenges in environmental governance.

Green finance, a "new driving force" for deeper financial cooperation, creates "new opportunities" for China-UK cooperation on the Belt and Road Initiative and offers a "new solution" to global financial governance, Liu said.

"We understand that has to be a truly international effort to meet the challenges (of the green finance mission). This is a world issue we're addressing," said Catherine McGuinness, chair of the Policy and Resources Committee of the City of London Corporation.

"In today's forum, we will explore ways in which the Asian and UK economies can connect to each other, to further develop green finance," she added.

As the executive deputy director of the green finance cooperation committee of AFCA, the City of London has been committed to promoting the development of green finance and collaboration between Chinese and British financial institutions.

The event, held in Guildhall of the City of London on Tuesday, also witnessed the launching of AFCA Green Finance Practice Report 2019.

The report includes data on green finance, resources and emissions from 15 countries and regions, and 43 cases of green finance practice.

A set of evaluation systems for green finance in Asian countries was established in the report in a bid to set up the Asian version of guidelines and standards for green finance practice, according to the speech of Chen Gongyan, chairman of China Galaxy Securities.

China Galaxy Securities is the director of the green finance cooperation committee of the AFCA, and author of the report.

The AFCA, established in May 2017 in Beijing, is a regional non-governmental and non-profit organization devoted to building an exchange and cooperation platform for Asian financial institutions. It has nearly 110 members from 28 countries and regions in Asia, America, Europe, Africa and Oceania.

The Rise of China-Europe Railways

The Rise of China-Europe RailwaysMarch 6, 2018The Dawn of a New Commercial Era?For over two millennia, technology and politics have shaped trade across the Eurasian supercontinent. The compass and domesticated camels helped the “silk routes” emerge between 200 and 400 CE, and peaceful interactions between the Han and Hellenic empires allowed overland trade to flourish. A major shift occurred in the late fifteenth century, when the invention of large ocean-going vessels and new navigation methods made maritime trade more competitive. Mercantilism and competition among Europe’s colonial powers helped pull commerce to the coastlines. Since then, commerce between Asia and Europe has traveled primarily by sea.1Against this historical backdrop, new railway services between China and Europe have emerged rapidly. Just 10 years ago, regular direct freight services from China to Europe did not exist.2 Today, they connect roughly 35 Chinese…
