Host: China Development Institute and New Zealand China Council
New Zealand and China are both committed to pursuing ambitious national carbon emission reduction goals. Transport emissions including from international air and sea transport are a commonly discussed aspect of global emission reduction strategies. But the adaptations that air and sea ports will need to make to service greener transportation, as well decarbonisation of port operations in other ways, have been less of a focus. Ports in New Zealand and China are, however, making innovative progress in this area.
In this half-day dialogue organised by China Development Institute and New Zealand China Council, senior executives and experts from the air and sea industries in China and New Zealand are gathered to discuss decarbonisation progress and challenges for air and sea ports in New Zealand and China, and to identify future collaboration opportunities between the two countries.
