ADB-PRC Policy Dialogue: Macroeconomic Policies for Transition to Net Zero

9 - 10:30 am Beijing Time, 16 May 2023 Hybrid

As the world’s largest emitter, the PRC has committed to peaking carbon emissions before 2030 and achieving carbon neutrality before 2060. Transition finance, which provides financing to high carbon-emitting industries, provides an important financing option for the PRC to support its decarbonization activities. Asian Development Bank PRC Resident Mission is organizing a seminar on this topic and the objective of the discussion is to obtain deep understanding of macroeconomic policies supporting transition to net zero.
