Tianjin Municipal People’s Government and the International Desalination Association (IDA) will host the 2011 Desalination and Water Reuse International Forum in Tianjin, China on 6-8 April 2011. Its theme is Sustainable Solutions for the Future.

The forum will provide a platform for the communication between entrepreneurs, experts and professors, and promote cooperation in desalination research, development and projects between China and the world.

To promote the development of Chinese seawater desalination and utilization programs, Tianjin Municipal People’s Government and IDA have jointly hosted the 2004, 2006 and 2008 International Desalination Forum & Exhibition events in Tianjin, which were very successful. They provided an exchange platform for the most advanced desalination technology and economical, cultural, legal and financial cooperation.

Supported by the Ministry of Science & Technology of the People’s Republic of China and the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and sponsored by the government’s State Oceanic Administration, the event will be held in the Tianjin Saixiang Hotel. There will also be an exhibition of products, equipment and services for the desalination and water treatment industry.
