Dao Ventures Speaks About U.S. Withdrawal from Paris Climate Accord on CGTN
Washington, D.C. -- The United States will withdraw from the international climate agreement known as the Paris accord, President Trump announced on June 1, 2017. He said the U.S. will negotiate either re-entering the Paris agreement or a new deal that would put American workers first.
One day before the decision was officially announced, Tao Zhang, Founding Managing Director of Dao Ventures, joined the following panelists on The Heat program at the China Global Television Network (CGTN) to discuss Trump’s expected decision and what it could mean for global climate change and the role that China is expected to play under the new circumstances.
