November 21, 2019

Cebr was delighted to welcome the National Development and Reform Comission, led by Liu Xilong, Director of the Division of Coal Management of the Bureau of Economic Operations Adjustment.


Cebr Deputy Chairman Douglas McWilliams, Chief Executive Nina Skero, Head of Energy Mike McWilliams and Head of Macroeconomics Kay Neufeld presented an overview of the Cebr’s company history, the state of the world and UK economy and the latest on UK energy policy.


The 19-member strong Chinese delegation took a lively interest in the history of coal within the UK’s energy mix and how the UK managed the transition towards less polluting energy sources.


The delegation also commented on the progress of China’s transition from a ‘high-growth’ to a ‘quality-growth’ economy, with domestic consumption now contributing more than 60% of GDP growth.
