A few days ago, the new energy project briefing of “Belt and Road” prefectural and municipal councils for the promotion of international trade & the joint meeting of local international chambers of commerce was held in Wuxi. Persons in charge of 32 prefectural and municipal councils for the promotion of international trade and business representatives from 12 provinces and regions in the whole country gathered together to exchange views on deepening industrial cooperation and opening up international markets. Zhou Changqing, Vice Mayor of Wuxi, attended the event.
Mr. Zhou Changqing said that the new energy industry was one of the top ten strategic emerging industries and one of the first industries to respond to the "Belt and Road" Initiative in Wuxi. New energy companies such as Envision, Suntech and Shangneng have made full use of their own technological advantages and successively carried out energy cooperation with Australia, India, Brazil, Argentina, Nigeria and other countries through acquisitions or establishments. Currently, they have invested 43 projects with a total investment of 610 million US dollars, covering wind power, solar energy, traditional energy and other fields. He hoped that various agencies for the promotion of international trade could further strengthen communication, exchange and jointly promote the development of the "Belt and Road" Initiative.
In recent years, Wuxi has actively participated in the “Belt and Road” international capacity cooperation focusing mainly in industries such as textiles and garments, electric energy and machinery and equipment. As of September this year, Wuxi enterprises had invested 353 projects in countries along the “Belt and Road”, with an agreed investment of 2.81 billion US dollars by China.
