June 10, 2016

NEDO participated in the "Asian Clean Energy Forum 2016" hosted by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and others in Manila, Philippines, from June 8th to June 10th.

In his keynote speech, NEDO Executive Director Makoto Watanabe made an appeal to attendees with regards to NEDO's energy demonstration projects in the Asian region, saying that promoting the introduction of Japan's advanced energy conservation and renewable energy technologies contributes to the resolution of global environmental problems while noting that NEDO is already producing results.

In October 2012 NEDO and the ADB signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to cooperate on issues involving energy and the environment in the Asia-Pacific region. Since then the two organizations have proactively supported the mutual exchange of information and personnel, and will strive to promote an even more cooperative relationship in the future.
