The forum will provide keynote speeches by public and private leaders from Japan and China, a project signing ceremony, and working sessions in which participants will exchange opinions concerning experiences in and policy challenges for energy conservation-related and environmental issues in six fields in which the related people in Japan and China are commonly interested.
The forum aims to provide a platform on which the public and private sectors in Japan and China will advance mutually beneficial cooperation in the fields of energy conservation and the environment so as to serve mutually shared interests. As Japan and China advance cooperation in such fields, expanding business opportunities in these fields between Japan and China is considered to be the most realistic approach for improving the respective current situation with regards to the enormous Chinese market through the dissemination of Japan’s state-of-the-art technology.
