President Zhou gave a briefing to the guests about the general information and basic facts of CAE, and then expressed his wish for CAE to establish closer ties with Battelle in the future.

Zhou said that CAE is currently working on a China Energy Medium and Long Term Development Strategy Study Advisory Project Report (2030-2050), which involves researches into specialized areas such as solar energy, wind power, nuclear power and coal, in which fields CAE would be willing to conduct joint study with Battelle. Afterwards, Vice President Xie Kechang emphasized on that “making traditional industries new” and “bringing new industries to large scale produc-tion” can not be achieved without science and technological innovation and industrialization, by taking the example of China and US’ joint efforts in the filed of clean and effective utili-zation of fossil energy. Xie also said that there should be spacious room for CAE and Battelle to establish more cooperation for the future, judging from the characteristics and functions of CAE and the demands of our nation.
