The 7th U.S.-China Transportation Forum will be held in Suzhou, China on Thursday, November 5 and Friday, November 6, 2015. Delegations from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and the People's Republic of China's Ministry of Transport (MOT) will have robust discussions and review actions taken this past year by the Transportation Forum's Working Groups.

The U.S. delegation will be led by U.S. Deputy Secretary of Transportation, Victor Mendez while the Chinese delegation will be led by Vice Minister of the MOT, Gao Hongfeng. Other participants will include U.S. Government officials from the U.S. Trade and Development Agency, as well as the Departments of State and Commerce along with United States and Chinese industry.

In support of the November 2014 U.S.-China Joint Announcement on Climate Change, the U.S. DOT, U.S. Environmental Protection agency, the MOT of China, and the Ministry of Industry of Information Technology of China strongly recommends cities and metropolitan transit districts in both countries take measurable steps to reduce transit fleet vehicle greenhouse gas and air pollutant emissions through increased deployment and operation of Zero Emission Buses (ZEB).

The U.S.-China Race to Zero Emissions (R2ZE) program encourages cities/metropolitan transit districts to take ambitious actions to put a new generation of advanced, non-polluting transit buses on the road in communities across the United States and China as a collaborative effort under the U.S.-China Climate Change Working Group. For more information, please see the R2ZE page.
