Melbourne, the capital of the Australian state of Victoria, hopes to boost collaboration with its Chinese sister city Tianjin on their shared path toward reaching net zero carbon emissions, a senior Victoria official said at the end of April.

"Ours is the first sister-city relationship between Australia and China. I'm the first person from the government of Victoria to visit China after the three years of COVID-19," Nicholas Reece, deputy lord mayor of Melbourne, told China Daily. "We are very committed to relations, and to more business-to-business and people-to-people ties."

At the top of Reece's agenda is for the two cities to "seek more opportunities and pursue additional focuses", including carbon reduction and advanced smart manufacturing.

"Tianjin and Melbourne, as well as China and Australia, are at the leading edge of the goal to achieve net zero targets. We know that we can't do it on our own, and we need the help from our friends, like Tianjin," he said. "Tianjin has great manufacturing, energy and smart technology capabilities that can help us get to net zero."

Meanwhile, business delegates from another of Tianjin's sister cities — Manchester in the United Kingdom — held online discussions with their counterparts in Tianjin in March in a bid to advance collaboration in the field.
