State Councilor LIU Yandong met with visiting US Energy Secretary Steven Chu in Beijing on Nov. 16，2010. Dr. WAN Gang, Vice Chairman of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) and Science Minister attended the meeting.
According to LIU, China and the US paid close attention to the cooperation in energy and science and technology. The joint R&D based on the principle of an equal footing and win-win results would be conducive for both sides to tap future industries and emerging markets, upgrade the energy mix, and promote energy conservation and emissions reduction. LIU also expressed her hope that both governments could take U.S.-China Clean Energy Research Center as a good example to further strengthen cooperation in areas besides energy in order to contribute to the balanced, healthy and sustainable development of the world at large.
