To foster technical exchange and strengthen collaborations amongst the engineering professions of Mainland, Taiwan, Macau and Hong Kong, a Cross-Strait Conference on Urban Construction Practices, jointly organized by the Guangdong Provincial Association for Science & Technology, Taiwan Construction Engineering Association, Macau Institution of Engineers (MIE) and HKIE Civil and Environmental Divisions, was held in Macau on 18 and 19 June 2011.
It was the first time that the theme of “New City Planning and Construction” was adopted in this conference series, in order to provide a platform for the engineering practitioners and researchers to share good practices for city planning and construction with a view to fostering mutual benefits in efficient use of resources for a sustainable future.
The conference was opened on 18 June by distinguished guests including the Minister of Transport & Public Works and other high-ranking officials of the Macau SAR Government, representatives of the co-organizing professional bodies. Technical presentations were given on four main areas including new infrastructure planning & development; quality green living; regional development and water resources; and regional energy management. It was insightful to share the experience of the speakers on various aspects such as strategic planning of new city in Guangdong Province; sustainable city planning, integrated strategy for solid waste management and sustainable reclamation in Hong Kong; use of steel sheet piles for coastal protection projects and carbon foot print assessment for slope stabilization works in Taiwan; and vacuum pre-consolidation method for reclamation in Macau.<
