"The Belt and Road Initiative" is a development strategy started by the Chinese government in 2013. It refers to the New Silk Road Economic Belt, which will link China with Europe through Central and Western Asia, and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, which will connect China with Southeast Asian countries, Africa and Europe. Neither the belt nor the road follows any clear line geographically speaking; they serve more as a road map for how China wants to further integrate itself into the world economy and strengthen its influence in these regions.
"The Belt and Road Initiative" also brings new opportunities and challenges to the industry of Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, especially to evaporative cooling technology. To this end, the 1st 'The Belt and Road Initiative' International Conference on Sustainable Refrigeration and Air Conditioning is to be launched.
This scientific meeting aims to meet the new challenges and opportunities brought to refrigeration and air conditioning industry by 'The Belt and Road Initiative', and we hope the conference will bring exclusive opportunities for all the participants. The policy-makers, the designers, researchers, engineers and managers from China and the countries along the Belt and Road Initiative will be invited to exchange their valuable works and experience in sustainable refrigeration and air conditioning technologies.
