Dear participants and friends,

To start with, on behalf of HRC and in my own name, I would like to extend my best wishes to you and your family.

Entrusted by China International Development Cooperation Agency, Chinese Ministry of Commerce, Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Chinese Ministry of Water Resources, Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology, National Development and Reform Commission of China, the United Nations Development Programme, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, International Labor Organization, and the ASEAN Secretariat, HRC has since 1983 successfully hosted 158 workshops, seminars, training courses for more than 5000 participants from 132 countries. After over 40 years of development, we have both inbound and outbound training programs, both bilateral and multilateral ones, both online and physical ones, and the working language has included English, French, Russian, Vietnamese and Spanish. The themes of our training programs have been diversified to include small hydropower, water conservancy, water resources, renewable energy, climate change, disaster prevention and mitigation, poverty alleviation, and sustainable community development. HRC has been recognized by the international community as the "Family of Small Hydropower" and praised by Chinese Ministry of Commerce as "Model of South-South Cooperation".

HRC also acts as implementing entity for China-Pakistan Belt and Road Joint Laboratory on Small Hydropower Technology, International Human Resources Training Base for Green Hydropower of MWR, and International S&T Cooperation Base of Renewable Energy and Rural Electrification of Zhejiang Province. In recent years, by undertaking national and provincial key projects, HRC has carried out extensive international cooperation and exchanges in the fields of small hydropower development and hybrid power generation of renewable energy, and established four technical centers in overseas countries along the Belt and Road. With the joint efforts of HRC and Pakistan Council of Renewable Energy Technology (PCRET), the China-Pakistan Joint Research Center for Small Hydropower Technology was established. In 2015, Chinese President Xi Jinping unveiled for the joint research center in Islamabad. In 2019, it was recognized as one of the first 14 "Belt and Road" Joint Laboratories. In 2023, it was included in the achievement list of the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation. Besides, HRC has also conducted joint research and project demonstration in renewable energy investigation and assessment and hybrid power generation technology in Southeast Asian countries including the Philippines and Indonesia, etc. as well as in green hydropower development, dam safety evaluation, solar-powered water pumping irrigation with Mekong countries. In Africa, HRC has provided consultation services in hydropower development to Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya, Côte d'Ivoire, D.R. Congo etc.

Dear our participants and friends, we do believe both of our online and physical training programs in China have offered you valuable experience through the classroom presentation, discussions, study tours and various contacts with the local friendly Chinese people. It is also expected that we could continue all-round exchange and cooperation in the field mutually concerned.

Dear our participants and friends, it is also expected that you could share with us about water and energy related information in your countries (such as policies & regulations, potential projects, biddings, meetings or conferences, training and etc.) by means of giving introductions, reports, brief news, business opportunities etc. In such a way, all of us can work closely, regardless of the geographical distance, and we can share the valuable information and further strengthen the cooperation among us.

Besides, should there be any advice concerned, never hesitate to inform us please, since HRC, as the family of global SHP, is also the home for all of you forever.

Thank you for your kind attention. We are looking forward to hearing from you and meeting you in the near future.

Yours faithfully

Mr. Xu Zhifeng
Director General of HRC
