China called on the international community to provide more technical aid to address climate change problems in developing countries, Xinhua news agency reported.
Xie Zhenhua, deputy of the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) proposed methods on how to promote international technology transfers at a two-day climate change conference in Beijing, reported the dpa.
Xie said developed countries are obligated to pass technology on under favourable conditions, adding that "the core of the mechanism is technology transfer, including sufficient funds to support the transfer."
"Developed countries should promise further measures involving funds, taxation, laws and other aspects to help the mechanism play its role," he said.
China also called for the establishment of a commission for technology development and transfers.
The role of technologies is "absolutely central" for countries such as China to commit to environmental targets in the current round of climate change negotiations, Yvo de Boer, executive secretary of the UN's Framework on Climate Change, said on the sidelines of the conference.
The issues of climate change and climate protection are among the planned topics for European Commission chief Jose Manuel Barroso and nine EU commissioners starting May 1 in Beijing.
