Minister Vivian Balakrishnan to attend energy and climate forum in Mexico

Minister for the Environment and Water Resources, Dr Vivian Balakrishnan, will attend the 18th Major Economies Forum on Energy and Climate in Mexico City on Thursday and Friday.

Initiated in 2009, MEF brings together 17 major economies to discuss issues relating to the international climate change negotiations under the United Nations Framework Convention for Climate Change (UNFCCC).

This upcoming meeting serves as a preparatory meeting for the countries in the lead-up to the annual climate change conference to be held in Lima, Peru, in December 2014.
