Summary of the address by Minister Counsellor Xiaodong Ming

On behalf of the Embassy of China, I would like to express my congratulations on the occasion of this exhibition.
China is currently undergoing rapid urbanization. We are accelerating the construction of green cities, smart cities, and human cities by improving urban spaces and the comprehensive impact of cities, and are planning and promoting the integral development of cities and rural districts.
Cooperation between China and Japan in urbanization has large possibilities, and Nikken Sekkei has a wealth of experience in urban planning and design. It also has a strong record of accomplishments in urban planning all around China. I hold anticipations that Nikken Sekkei will participate in China’s urbanization process and support China’s urbanization development, and together with this, that Nikken Sekkei will achieve even more wonderful development.
Nikken Sekkei’s China project team form the bridge between China and Japan in the realm of urbanization.
I hope that you will all continue to cooperate with each other even more for the mutual benefit of both parties.
