The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and the Department of Energy and Climate Change regularly discuss international energy governance with China. Principally these discussions take place between our embassy in Beijing and the Chinese National Energy Administration and through a joint UK-China study into options for improving international energy governance. This FCO-funded study is helping China to consider options for stronger governance, including closer co-operation with the International Energy Agency.
