Upon the invitation of the South California Association of Governments (SCAG), an IPM delegation, led by IPM Vice Director-general Prof. WANG Yi, made a six-day visit to the US in December 2012.
During the visit in Los Angeles, Prof. WANG met with SCAG Executive Director Dr. Hasan Ikhrata. They held a pleasant and lively discussion on such topics as regional planning for sustainable development and low-carbon policy simulation. The two sides signed a MOU for cooperation in joint research, personnel exchanges and research platform development.
The delegation also held extensive talks with government officials and university researchers in Boston and Austin, including the secretary of energy and environmental affairs of Massachusetts Government.
