Minister Wan Gang met with John Podesta, Chair of the Center for American Progress and his delegation on November 18th, 2011.
Wan spoke highly of their efforts in enhancing mutual understanding and consolidating friendship between China and America. Since the signing of China-US Agreement on S&T Cooperation in 1979, the two sides have carried out fruitful cooperation in a range of areas including energy, health and agriculture. Taking China-US Clean Energy Research Center (CERC) and Innovation Dialogue as examples, Wan briefed the guests on the progress of practical cooperation between enterprises, universities and research institutes of the two sides in the fields of mutual interest. Wan hoped that both sides could pay full attention to IP protection, creation and promotion in joint R&D projects.
