The US -China Green Energy Council and the U.S. Department of Commerce - Silicon Valley U.S. Export Assistance Center are pleased to announce a joint seminar “Opportunities from China Stimulus Package and Cleantech” on August 10th, 2009.
China and the United States have reached a consensus on the importance of renewable energy. U.S. President Barack Obama has pledged that the U.S. will invest $150 billion in alternative energy over the next few years. In China , the “Eleventh Five-Year Plan” mandates an increase in overall consumption of alternative energy sources from 2.5% to 10% by 2010. As a consequence, the alternative energy market in China will reach USD $200 billion by 2010. The Chinese government recently rolled out the implementation of the solar roof system and incentive policies, indicating a genuine launch of solar energy applications in the Chinese market. China has also decided to invest additional USD $400 billion stimulus money into the new energy sector. This is an amazing market with countless opportunities, which you cannot miss!
・ Where will this stimulus money go?
・ How to get this stimulus money?
・ What opportunities will have for US companies?
・ How this package will impact to cleantech sector and US-China collaborations on it?
Please come to our seminar, if you have one or some of these questions above. We honorably invited the US and China government officers and economic experts to elaborate this stimulus progam, the impact to china economy, and the challenges and opportunities for the U.S. business companies, especially in this global financial crisis circumstance. Cleantech is one of the important sectors in both US and China stimulus package. How the clean technology companies will benefit from this stimulus plan will be also explored in this seminar.
