What valuable lessons can the rest of Asia take from China?

Addressing Climate Change With Green Transport & Pure Electric Vehicles

Transportation related carbon emissions account for nearly 25% of global emissions. Reducing these emissions is a key step for Asian countries to meet their national emissions targets and Paris Agreement goals.
