A delegation from Jiashan County, led by Mayor Mr Qi Hailong, visited the Hannover Fair on Monday, 25th April 2016 to join the high-level discussion on the sustainable development of Jiashan economic development zone (EDZ).

High-ranking guests attended the discussion: Mr Reinhard Büchl, cluster speaker of Umweltcluster Bayern and CEO of Büchl Entsorgungswirtschaft, was a perfect match to the needs of Jiashan EDZ as expert for environmental technologies.
