Asian cities meet to focus on industry cooperation
NEW DELHI: The three-day meeting, being organised under the banner of the Asian Network of Major Cities-21 (ANMC-21), will seek to forge strong bond among the major Asian cities.
Prominent among those who will attend include Kuala Lumpur mayor D.H. Mohmad Shaid Bin Taufek, Tokyo governor Shintaro Ishhara, Singapore governor Samak Sundaravej and Hanoi Trade Department director Nguyen Manh Hoang.
ANMC-21 is a coalition of 11 Asian cities founded two years ago, said Delhi State Industrial Development Corporation (DSIDC) managing director Rajni Kant Verma. The Delhi government is hosting the meet.
"The meet will enable major Asian cities share their knowledge and experience of common problems and contribute to social and economic development in Asia," added Verma.
The participating cities in the second ANMC-21 meet are Bangkok, Beijing, Hanoi, Jakarta, Manila, Singapore, Taipei, Yangon, New Delhi, Kaula Lumpur and Tokyo. The first meet was held in Tokyo last year.
Verma said the progress made by these Asian majors in the economic and industrial fields were collectively displayed at the Delhi Pavilion at the India International Trade Fair now under way here.
The ANMC-21 was formed to ensure that Asia plays a significant role at the global level in the 21st century. It aims to promote cultural unity and to find solutions for problems faced by these cities.
