The opening ceremony of the Asia-Europe Water Resources Research and Utilization Center was held on Aug. 22 in Changsha.

Premier Wen Jiabao proposed the establishment of the Asia-Europe Water Resources Research and Utilization Center at the eighth Asia and Europe summit last October. It is the first research institute established in China since the Asia-Europe summit mechanism began operating 16 years ago.

After this center is established, it will concentrate on the research and utilization of water resources to set up a Asia-Europe water resources technology research and coordinating center, a water policy and technology consulting center, a training and communication center, a product research and testing center, and a technology and product exhibition and promotion center.
