Obama was in Beijing for the Asian Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, where he met with other leaders about trade issues. One goal the leaders agreed on was promoting more electric vehicle use in the region.

“The United States is leading work for APEC economies to take new actions to promote the widespread usage of electric vehicles through aligning existing regulations and basing new regulations on international standards,” the White House said in a statement Tuesday. “Such actions would ensure that the new wave of environmentally friendly, technologically advanced electric vehicles are safe and convenient to use in order to gain greater acceptance by consumers and a bigger share of the global automotive marketplace.”
