Dr. Kuang warmly welcomed the CEO on his third visit of this year, and thanked him for IHA’s long-time support to IWHR. He said the successful 6th World Hydropower Congress in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia this year is a great boost to the sustainable hydropower development in the African continent, laying out a guideline for its hydropower development and operation in the coming decade. Dr. Kuang reaffirmed that, through the IHA China Office hosted at the institute, IWHR will fully support the 7th World Hydropower Congress in 2019. He also invited Mr. Taylor and his colleagues to visit IWHR again next year.

Mr. Taylor appreciated IWHR’s great hospitality. He briefed the meeting on IHA’s achievement this year, and thanked IWHR for its support and contributions. He said he looked forward to the profound cooperation with IWHR and the International Research and Training Center on Erosion and Sedimentation (IRTCES), in order to share the advanced Chinese technologies and experience.

Approaches and contents of future cooperation were also discussed between the two sides.
