  • Spotlight on China: Our Shared Future

    Friday, March 28 / 8:30am - 11:15am
    Room 1

    China's Twelfth Five-Year Plan (2011-2015) and other government policies have set ambitious targets for greener growth and greater social stability in rural and inland areas. Repairing China's damaged waterways, agricultural lands, and improving air and water quality in major urban areas, the costs of which are estimated at over $400 billion, are straining the resources of national and state authorities that might better be used to move China toward the more resilient and ecologically sensitive economy it desires.

    Despite its continued dependency on fossil fuel energy resources, China has become the world's largest market for renewable energy deployment and one of the largest suppliers of clean energy technologies. This is creating exciting new partnership opportunities for foreign suppliers.

    Business and government leaders at the forefront of these new partnerships will share their insights on the challenges, risks and the enormous opportunities that are reshaping the Middle Kingdom. Learn why helping to "green" China is also a way to green the entire world.
