Guiyang vice mayor met ICLEI for discussion on future cooperation
On 28 June 2015, ICLEI’s Deputy Secretary General Monika Zimmermann, Regional Director of ICLEI East Asia and China Representative Shu Zhu, and Founding Director and Senior Consultant of ICLEI East Asia Konrad Otto-Zimmermann held a bilateral meeting with Guiyang Vice Mayor, Ningfeng Ji, during the Eco-Forum Global (EFG) Annual Conference 2015. Alex Zhang, Executive Director of EFG also attended the meeting.
At the meeting, ICLEI thanked Vice Mayor Ji for supporting the organization of two ICLEI events held in Guiyang – “EcoProcura© China 2015: Green Public Procurement” and the 2015 ICLEI East Asia RexCom Meeting, as well as Vice Mayor Ji’s feedback and suggestion for future cooperation between ICLEI and Guiyang City.
Since ICLEI will be holding several significant events in 2015, including the EcoMobility Festival in Johannesburg and the Transformative Actions Program (TAP), Monika Zimmermann invited Guiyang City to actively participate in ICLEI’s activities, such as showcasing Guiyang’s successful sustainability projects and plans at the COP 21 in Paris in December through participating in TAP.
