Background of the Expo
In July 2010, to accelerate the transformation of China’s economic development mode formulated by the CPC central committee, NDRC chose five provinces and eight cities including Guangdong, Liaoning, Tianjin and Chongqing to pioneer the construction of low-carbon provinces (municipalities) and cities. Meanwhile MOHURD also formed a leading group to actively organize the demonstration and technological popularization of low-carbon Eco-Cities.
While promoting its rapid economic growth, Tianjin, as one of the first pioneering cities in the construction of ecological and low-carbon cities, places a high value on the transformation of its economic development mode through restructuring its industries, vigorously developing emerging industries of strategic importance and low energy-consumption industries, paying close attention to energy conservation and propelling the transformation into low-carbon industries. To this end, eight advantageous and pillar industries, including aerospace, new energy resources and materials, biotechnology and modern medicine, have been blossoming and taking root in Tianjin.
The 2nd China (Binhai Tianjin) International Eco-City Forum & Expo will take The Development Paths of Cities in the Backdrop of Low Carbon as its theme. It will be divided into two sessions, i.e., the forum and the exposition. Renowned experts, scholars, governmental officials and heads of MNCs across the world will be invited to discuss low carbon issues in detail at the forum. Moreover, advanced ideas, techniques and products from China and abroad related to the construction of low-carbon and Eco-Cities will be demonstrated at the Expo, which can help to promote the development of emerging industries of strategic importance,the construction of ecologic cities, and exchange and cooperation between businesses. The Expo will actually serve as a platform for trading new products. Meanwhile, representatives from other pioneering provinces (municipalities) and overseas ecological demonstration cities will be also invited to the Forum & Expo to discuss the plan for the development of low-carbon and Eco-Cities.
Looking Back at the First Expo
The 1st China (Binhai Tianjin) International Eco-City Forum & Expo was held in Binhai Convention & Exhibition from September 28 to October 3, 2010. The exhibition covered an area of 30000 m2 with 1285 exhibition stands,164 companies and over 50000 visitors in attendance. The Expo attracted leading companies such as Honeywell, Otis, Vestas, Emerson, Cisco, Siemens, Kyocera, Broad(Changsha), ABB, Lofsolar (Taiwan), Rheem, Hitachi, and Panasonic. During the same period, high value-added events including project signing ceremonies, policy release conferences, direct talks between suppliers and buyers, new techniques and products launch conferences were also held.
The 2nd China (Binhai Tianjin) International Eco-City Forum & Expo will take The Development Paths of Cities in the Backdrop of Low Carbon as its theme. It will demonstrate advanced ideas, techniques and products from the low-carbon pioneering provinces (municipalities) in China and other Eco-Cities in China and abroad. At the same time, relevant companies from China and overseas will be invited to the Expo to discuss plans related to the development of low-carbon and Eco-Cities.
