    On December 19, Liu Qianwei, chief engineer of Shanghai Municipal Urban-Rural Development and Management Commission, met with Dr. Feniosky Peña-Mora, commissioner of New York City Department of Design and Construction (DDC) and his party.

    Liu Qianwei said that Shanghai is faced with same questions in urban planning and construction and comprehensive management as New York, so it is highly necessary for the city to draw on the concepts, technology and models of other international metropolises including New York. He also briefed his American guests on topics of interest to them such as sustainable urbanization and informatization of buildings.

    Dr. Feniosky Peña-Mora introduced New York City’s concepts in design and construction: outstanding planning, sustainable development, blending with the health concept and restorable after disasters. The mayor of New York hopes that the construction and design authorities of world-class metropolises will build together a cooperation platform and a dialogue mechanism, with which they can share experience in urban construction and management and in facing risks, challenges and opportunities.
