Italy looking to learn global issues solutions

SHANGHAI'S World Expo is a unique opportunity to boost global cooperation in developing new technologies to fight climate change, Italy's environment minister said.

"Technological cooperation is key to a global agreement based on curbing carbon dioxide emissions," Stefania Prestigiacomo said.

The minister, who is to represent the Italian government at the Expo's opening ceremony on May 1, will have the privilege of cutting the Italian pavilion's red ribbon.

Prestigiacomo, who will depart for Shanghai on Tuesday, said she was looking forward to the trip.

"I am happy to have the honor of attending such an important event. It's an extraordinary occasion for Italy to display its excellences, quality products and best practices."

But Expo means much more for Prestigiacomo as she leads a ministry that is a front runner on global issues such as climate change, environmental protection and sustainable development.

The event represents a launch pad not only to enhance environmental awareness but also discuss strategic and coordinated measures to counter climate change via new technologies, she said.

"Economic growth implies energy consumption and carbon emissions, thus pollution and climate change."
