Additionally, this agreement holds good for 5 years and was signed by India’s Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh and Xie Zhenhua, vice minister at China‘s National Development and Reform Commission.

Similarly, India signed a deal with Japan this week and has also spoken of cooperation with South Korea, Brazil and the United States.
