. . . Theresa May announced an investment of more than £100 million in environmentally friendly vehicles, as she addressed the UK’s first Zero-Emission Vehicle Summit . . .
At the event, the PM will unveiled a new international declaration, which will “forge the way” for the introduction of a smart, zero-emission electric vehicle infrastructure.
The first signatories to the so-called ‘Birmingham Declaration’ include Denmark, Italy and France, as well as Portugal, Belarus, the United Arab Emirates and Indonesia.
However, the government claims more countries are already in talks to sign up to an agreement that it hopes will “form the basis of increasing international engagement at climate conferences” to “accelerate the global transition” to low-emission vehicles. . . .
