Climate – Laurent Fabius’s participation in the Major Economies Forum (Luxembourg, July 18 and 19, 2015)

Laurent Fabius will participate in the Major Economies Forum due to take place in Luxembourg on July 18 and 19. This forum, which was held in Washington in April, brings together the major greenhouse gas emitting countries under the chairmanship of the United States.

This meeting will be followed by an informal consultation meeting which will be attended by about 40 ministers in Paris on July 20 and 21.

Laurent Fabius, COP21 President, will work with the representatives of the world’s major economies, the Peruvian president of COP20 and other countries invited to attend as observers on narrowing the differences of opinion regarding the key issues in the negotiations currently under way to reach an ambitious agreement in Paris.
