    Background

    Zhenjiang is China’s second batch of low carbon pilot cities. On December 13th, 2014, President Xi Jinping visited Zhenjiang and listened to the report on the de-carbonization of Zhenjiang’s development. He commented that Zhenjiang was playing a leading role among cities in China in low carbon development, which was effective, and that Zhenjiang should continue to make more contribution to China’s de-carbonization in general.

    In September last year, Zhenjiang was invited by the National Development and Reform Commission to represent low carbon pilot cities of China to attend the first China-US Climate Leaders Summit, where Zhenjiang signed a MOU on low carbon cooperation with California. In December, 2015, Zhenjiang was the only city representative of China to hold a “Zhenjiang Day” event at the China Pavilion at COP 21 in Paris, and signed a Plan of Actions with California to strengthen bilateral cooperation on low carbon development. In July, 2016, Mr. Li Qiang, Party Secretary of Jiangsu Province, and Mr. Xie Zhenhua, China’s special representative on climate change issues (former Deputy Director General of NDRC) visited Zhenjiang respectively and both expressed their support to Zhenjiang’s efforts of organizing the Zhenjiang Low Carbon Tech Expo.

    The Expo is an effort by Zhenjiang to advocate low carbon development and to address the global issue of climate change. Through the Expo, we aim to empower the development of low carbon industries and economic growth with our strengths in low carbon city development. Party Secretary Li Qiang and Special Representative Xie Zhenhua have both confirmed that they would attend the Expo in Zhenjiang.
