UK expects more co-op with China in water supplies

CHONGQING, Nov. 24 (Xinhuanet) -- The United Kingdom water supplies delegation expresses hearty wishes to strengthen cooperation with its Chinese counterpart on an inspection tour in southwest China Thursday.

"The water supplies industry is one of the five key industries in which China and the United Kingdom have established trade partnership," said an official of the 12-member delegation during the two-day visit to Chongqing Municipality in southwest China.

On the meeting held by the municipal government, the delegates introduced their capacity and successful experience in the industry of water supplies. The two sides also talked about business cooperation in the future.

This tour will bring more business opportunities for the United Kingdom to cooperate with Chinese cities in water supplies, said Rich Wood, an official with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs of the United Kingdom.

Prior to Chongqing, the delegation visited Beijing and Tianjin Municipality in northern China and it will next head for Shenzhen,a special economic zone in south China, for an inspection visit.
