The article reports that United States has entered into a partnership with Australia, China, India, Japan and South Korea to encourage the development of technology for combating global climate change and to encourage the sharing of technologies. Representatives of the nations, including U.S. State Department officials, were meeting in Laos when they announced the formation of the Asia-Pacific Partnership for Clean Development and Climate. The partnership will focus on voluntary measures to create investment opportunities for developing clean energy technologies and removing barriers that could discourage industry from putting the technologies in place.
