On the morning of September 5, the opening ceremony of the BFA “Energy, Resources and Sustainable Development” Conference was held in the Fairmont Olympic Hotel of Seattle, Washington, the United States. After the opening ceremony, Chairman Yasuo FUKUDA and Secretary General ZHOU Wenzhong were invited to meet with Jay INSLEE, governor of the State of Washington. Governor INSLEE thanked BFA for selecting the State of Washington as the location of its first-ever conference held in the United States, and believed that this conference would greatly promote the cooperation between the State of Washington and Japan, China and relevant Asian countries. INSLEE wished a complete success of the BFA conference in Seattle.

Chairman FUKUDA expressed his gratitude for the support of Washington to BFA and noted that as Washington is renowned for its innovative measures and achievements in environmental protection and sustainable development, Asian countries wish to learn from the successful practice of the state and the city of Seattle, which was an important reason why BFA chose to hold the “Energy, Resources and Sustainable Development” conference in Seattle.

Upon the request of Governor INSLEE, Chairman FUKUDA and Secretary General ZHOU respectively introduced the practice of Japan and China in energy conservation, environmental protection and peaceful use of nuclear power.
