The United States and China are currently the biggest economies in the world and yet both countries lag behind others when it comes to investing in renewable energy. Failure to invest in renewable energy at a level proportionate to the size of their economies has both economic and environmental implications for the U.S., China and indeed the world. A new chapter in U.S.-China trade relations may be expected beginning in 2013, as U.S. President Barack Obama begins his second term and the leadership of China undergoes major changes. The purpose of this Forum is to identify and explore opportunities for the U.S. and China to collaborate on trade and investment in renewable energy and environmental protection. Through such dialogue among accomplished players in the field, the Forum aims to propel action on these important topics.
