CWEG Vice President Fang Yong was invited to give a keynote speech. At the forum, he introduced the implementation progress of CWEG’s PPP projects, particularly of the Nanming River Water Environment Management Project, emphasizing that a PPP project should allow the full participation of another “P”, i.e. the People, to empower them to enjoy high-quality public services. In this way, aside from the government and enterprise, the PPP model also benefits the people, maximizing the Value for Money. Fang’s point of view was highly recognized by the attendees. Fast Company founder Alan Webb, in particular, expressed his appreciation to Fang’s point of view in his speech.
