On May 22, the 4th China-U.S. Governors Forum was held in Chengdu, Sichuan. Member of the CPC Hunan Provincial Standing Committee and Executive Vice Governor Chen Xiangqun participated in the forum and proposed that efforts should be taken to enhance Hunan's friendly relations with the United States and strengthen bilateral pragmatic cooperation in various fields.

Initiated in 2011, the China-U.S. Governors Forum has become an important platform to promote exchange and cooperation between local governments of the two countries. China and US take turns to organize the event. 

 

At the forum Chen Xiangqun delivered a speech on "Green Development" and conducted a dialogue around "Innovative Economy". He said that Hunan is giving priority to ecological environment and green development, and is focusing on building a green development mechanism, developing a green industrial economy, protecting green development environment, and advocating a green lifestyle. He continued, “Positive progress has been made in such areas as energy conservation and environmental protection, clean energy, energy equipment, and prefabricated buildings.

 
He proposed that US and Hunan may strengthen green development mechanism sharing and green industry development, green energy exploration, and cultural tourism industry cooperation, so as to seek green development for a better future. In the "Innovation Economy" dialogue, he introduced Hunan’s innovation-oriented opening up strategy and shared the existing experiences.

 

On the same day, Chen Xiangqun also met with U.S. Ambassador to China Terry Edward Branstad, New Mexico Lieutenant Governor John A. Sanchez, and other U.S. representatives. He hoped US and Hunan to further enrich and expand friendly relations and promote pragmatic cooperation in the fields of information industry, cultural tourism, general aviation, equipment manufacturing, and rail transit.
