President Hu talked to Dr. David Chu, DuPont Apollo
September 6, 2010, SHENZEN, HONG KONG -Amidst the 30th anniversary celebration of Shenzhen Special Economic Zone, while at Shenzhen Advance Technology Institute, Chinese Academy of Sciences, President Hu met Dr. David Chu, CEO of DuPont Apollo and was introduced to the company and products. Hu was quite impressed with the see-through BIPV demo module that could also work on indirect light conditions with stable performance, which provides a solution on low carbon emission and green building for China’s ever growing megacities. Hu also encouraged us to look beyond the coast region and urban area, and to make the technology and innovation affordable for the people in the rural and remote areas where resources are limited and infrastructure has yet to be further developed.
Being the very first investment about “Shenzhen Hong Kong Innovative Circle”, DuPont Apollo was the only multinational firm invited. There were 15 other representatives present, from a variety of high tech industries and of local companies that exemplified "Independent Innovation", the main theme of the event.
