2015 Seminar on Rural Electrification for Asian Countries Inaugurated at HRC

   ---Entrusted by the Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM), HRC conducts 2015 Seminar on Rural Electrification for Asian Countries from 14 May to 3 June. Twenty-five officials and engineers from five Asian countries, i.e. Georgia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal and Pakistan, came to attend this seminar, which is the 72nd China-aid training program implemented by HRC since its establishment.

   The opening ceremony of the seminar was held at the multifunctional hall of HRC and presided over by Mr. Lin Ning, the Division Chief of Foreign Affairs and Training. Deputy Directors of HRC, Mr. Xu Jincai and Mr. Huang Jianping were present, extending their warm welcome to all the participants who came all the way here for the significant event.

   Deputy Director Xu firstly reviewed that in 2013, Chinese President Xi Jinping put forward the two concepts of "Silk Road Economic Belt" and "21st Century Maritime Silk Road" during his visits to Central Asia and Southeast Asia, which has received high attention from the international community. For the past two years, the initiative on building "One Belt and One Road" has greatly helped promote China's cooperation with countries from Central Asia and Southeast Asia, in areas like trade and monetary cooperation, traffic connectivity and people-to-people exchanges. In recent years, the world economy has entered an era of restructuring and transformation. Asia is also facing big challenges like the adjustment of economic structure and the transformation of economic development mode. For Asia and the world, strengthened cooperation and innovation as well as building-up of a low-carbon society is the effective way to the solution to energy problem and sustainable development of the society. With the subject of rural electrification, the seminar is designated to provide a platform for Asian countries to fully discuss and communicate in the field of rural electrification and the development of SHP, wind power and solar energy, focusing on the exchange of updated technology and management practice. Deputy Director Xu heartily wished the seminar a great success, so as to make further contribution to the rural electrification in the Asian countries.
