Ancient City Captivated by Green Technology – DESSC China Summit

The 3,000-year old city of Xi’an was the capital of the first Chinese feudal dynasty. The city is world renowned as the home of the largest collection of ancient terracotta warriors.  Every visitor to Xi’an is amazed by the sophisticated culture preserved in these terracotta sculptures.  However, attendees at this year’s DESSC China Summit held in Xi’an May 18-19 were even more impressed with high tech’s role in driving economic growth while improving sustainability.

DESSC China produced its first report on the technology industry’s role in improving energy efficiency and fostering low-carbon economy in China at the end of 2010.  The report gained traction quickly and not long after its release, DESSC China was invited to present it to the senior Chinese official in charge of nationwide low-carbon economic development across industries.  Next time we heard from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) and the National Development and Reform Commission, DESSC China’s suggestions has been adopted into the twelfth Five Year Plan that provides guidance and directions for hundreds of thousands of Chinese officials and government agencies over the next five years.

To build on this momentum, DESSC China published their second report late last year, focusing on the specific approaches the technology industry is taking to advance sustainability.  At our forum, this message resonated among participants representing automobile companies, investors, urban developers, NGOs, and policy makers.  All parties shared this vision.  The Chinese Institute of Electronics and the Xi’an Economic Development Zone signed a strategic cooperation agreement advancing ICT energy efficiency and a low-carbon industrial base.  This agreement is important in that it will foster integration of energy-efficiency enabling technology across industries.  It seeks to create an industrial base comprised of smart data centers, green electronics manufacturing capacity, and the research and development of low-carbon technology applications in financial and services sectors.  The Vice Minister of MIIT, Mr. Su Bo, highlighted the significance of this milestone in meeting the goals of DESSC China.

There can be no doubt that DESSC China is winning the hearts and minds of China’s top thinkers and policy leaders.  This ensures the continued promotion of tech’s role in reducing the Chinese economy’s carbon footprint, successfully addressing one of China’s top challenges.

    我覺得 其實中國人本身一直不懂得欣賞自己的傳統文化 是的 近代許多發明和科學發展都源自西方國家 但這不代表中國的文化沒有可取之處呀 飲水思源 不代表全套照收 而是真真正正appreciate自己國家的文化 proud of my country 中文一直都被香港人的歧視啦 英文好好重要 中文不好沒關係的 一樣可以是學校的寵兒 英 美留學 更是令人加分的一點 我回香港的結果也是如此吧 我以前有好多同學 英文很好 中文很糟 常常用英文跟大家說中國怎樣怎樣不好 還說自己是 美國人 拿美國護照 討厭中國又討厭中文 還有精選警句 我是香港人 不是中國人 我心想 如果你討厭中國 又討厭中國人的身分 乾脆去染金髮 整容改高鼻子 然後吃飯不用筷子 不要慶祝中國人的節日 連假期都不要放 好了 [url=]aserra[/url] [link=]bqdszeix[/link]
