Cooperation between the
recycling industries in China and the European Union (EU) should be enhanced,
officials attending the 5th China-EU Round Table meeting agreed Monday.

Wang Gang, Chairman of the China Economic and Social Council, said developing a
recycling industry is one of China's key strategies in its economic and social
advancement. To do that, China will strengthen exchanges and cooperation with
the international community.

Mario Sepi, President of the European Economic and Social Committee, said China
and the European Union face a common environmental fate and stressed the
importance of exchanging experiences of waste disposal.

With fast economic development and population growth, China has an increasing
amount of waste, according to the round table meeting.

About 130 million tones of waste were produced in China in 2008. That number is
growing at a rate of seven to nine percent each year, said Zhu Tan, director of
the Research Center for Environment and Social Development at Nankai University.


He said China lacks technology and equipment necessary for classified waste
collection in cities. Also the lack of publicity and supervision has made
recycling inefficient.

Around 40 delegates from Europe and China attending the round table meeting
called for the construction of a Sino-EU recycling board to strengthen
communication of experiences and information.
