Dr. George Wang, President of USCEA and Ned Quistoff, Principal Commercial Officer of US Consulate General in Guangzhou delivered speeches at the conference. Dr. Wang pointed out that, as the largest developing country in the world, China is experiencing a high speed development in infrastructure and urbanization nationwide. Infrastructure, as the one of the key industries in both US and China, is an important area for cooperation between the US and Chinese companies.

Mr. Quistoff, in his remark, emphasized the market opportunities brought by the China's entry into WTO for US business communities, and praised the conference well served for the purpose of the US Infrastructure Trade Mission: exploring the huge Chinese market and identifying the potential projects and business partners. He hoped that more international exchange activities like this conference would be organized in the future.

Ranking officials from Guangdong Foreign Trade Commission and Shenzhen Land Planning & Resources Management Bureau, as well as about 50 US and Chinese companies in infrastructure industry attended the conference.
