They had a pleasant discussion with Jiangsu Fenghai New Energy Desalination Development Co., Ltd. on the foreign-aid project of “new energy seawater desalination equipment set” for the earlier-stage issues. Ma Minglong, director of Jiangsu Provincial Department of Commerce, Ni Feng, a member of Yancheng Municipal Standing Committee and secretary of Dafeng District, Zhu Yiming, deputy director of Jiangsu Provincial Commerce Department, and district leaders including Song Yong, Luo Qiang, Ni Xiangrong, Wei Yingsheng were involved in the meeting or accompanied on the investigation.

After this project is launched, we’ll provide all-round guarantees according to the regulations agreed by both sides in the contract to complete the project efficiently and make off-grid wind power seawater desalination project a new highlight in Maldives.
The Maldives delegation expressed their gratitude to the Chinese government for the project support. There’re numerous islands in Maldives. The new energy seawater desalination equipment set is a project utilizing renewable energy resources, which provides a good solution to the island water problems in Maldives.
