In recent years, as the international community paid more attention to issues of energy resource security, ecological environment protection and climate change, governments around the world have reached consensus and taken actions on accelerating the development and utilization of new energy resources represented by wind power and solar energy, thus the global new energy industry has shown a high-speed development trend. It is expected that by 2050, new energy sources, mainly wind power and solar energy, will contribute to 40% of the total power generation. In this context, international cooperation in the following fields including energy transition, institutional mechanisms, business models and technological innovation, should be vigorously carried out in the new energy industry, so as to further promote quality and sustainable development of the global new energy industry.

Parallel Forum 2: Coordinated Development of Rail Transit and Metropolitan Circle

Urban rail transit has such remarkable characteristics as large traffic volume, punctuality, high safety and environmental protection. When planning a modern city, governments in various countries often adopt the principle of moderate advance of traffic, take overall consideration of the layout of urban rail transit network in metropolitan area, and build up one-hour urban commuting circle with rail transit as the backbone. Focusing on rail transit planning, this forum will discuss in depth about how to guide the intelligent development of transportation, optimize the urban pattern and create the metropolitan circle on track, so as to realize the benign interaction between rail transit and urban development & people’s needs of convenient travel for the sustainable development of the cities.

Parallel Forum 3: Innovation and Cooperation Promote Sustainable Infrastructure in Belt & Road Initiative

As sustainability is getting increasing attention by governments and financial institutes, sustainable infrastructure will become a direction for the future in the international markets. It is also a strategic demand for companies to implement the Belt & Road Initiative and strengthen their competitiveness in the global market. Today, there has been a lot of progress in sustainable finance, standardization cooperation, collaboration in third-markets and technical innovation. These latest progresses have shown new opportunities for the development of sustainable infrastructure. Governments, financial institutes and companies could all play a role to embrace the new opportunities and challenges through collaboration and further promote sustainable infrastructure in the Belt & Road Initiative.

Parallel Forum 4: From the Belt and Road to Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area: Opportunities and Challenges of Infrastructure Connectivity

Infrastructure connectivity is crucial to regional economic and social developments. Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area is an important node area which is connected to the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road. Improving infrastructure construction, keeping channels of communications accessible and upgrading the level of internal connectivity are not only needed for the development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area but are also vital in supporting the completion of the Belt and Road infrastructure projects.
