2008 Macao International Environmental Co-operation Forum and Exhibition (2008 MIECF)
23 – 25 April 2008
Water, Energy and Sustainable Development – “Thinking Green, Going Clean and Living Cool”
Martin Parr to speak on Waste to Energy
MPCEE applauds and fully supports the Macao Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China’s initiative to take a proactive lead in promoting environmental protection and also in its drive to position Macao as a gateway for clean technology transfer. Environmental issues are urgent. Action is needed now. The government of Macao is doing its bit in the global drive for sustainable development by proactively hosting a forum to promote “Thinking Green, Going Clean and Living Cool” and facilitate international cooperation.
2008 MIECF will be held from 23 to 25, April 2008, in the Cotai Stripä Convention and Exhibition Centre at The Venetian® Macao
Macao is an ideal venue, due to its geographical location, its destination of choice for Asian travellers and its connection with the Pan-Pearl River Delta Region. It has historically always been the gateway to mainland China and South East Asia.
This conference event, supplemented by an accompanying exhibition, will play host to a multitude of government leaders, entrepreneurs, environmentalists, climatologists, scientists, researchers, experts, financial institutions, investors and representatives of non-government organisations, to actively participate in the collective effort to promote environmental protection and sustainable development; not just in China but globally. The three-day event will gather leaders of the Pan-Pearl River Delta Provinces and Regions of China, official guests and delegates from countries across the Asia-Pacific region.
The 2008 MIECF aims to support sustainable economic and social development in the region and in China through promotion of green enterprises and to establish Macao as a bridge connecting the Chinese mainland and other countries, for technology exchange and international co-operation in environmental protection. Critical issues on the agenda will be Energy, Water, Clean Production & Industrial processes and Agriculture & Forestry.
The various strands of the forum, to be run concurrently, with presentations and discussion, are:
• Energy Saving & Emission Reduction
• Efficient Use and Treatment of Water Resources
• Clean Manufacturing
• Intelligent/Eco Cities
• Sustainable Transport
Sectors to be covered include alternative energy, air quality management, water supply and waste water, climate change, energy efficient vehicles, fuel cells, green building products, energy efficiency, pollution prevention, waste management and recycling, sustainable construction and urban environmental management.
The exhibition will showcase the latest advances in environmental technology, state-of-the-art techniques and methodologies and will provide the opportunity for partnerships between providers and end-users. With rapid social and economic development, the Pan-Pearl River Delta regions and Asia Pacific regions in general have a high demand for environmental technologies. Governments and enterprises in the regions will be aiming to exchange ideas and forge co-operation with their counterparts all over the world.
