The working group will collaborate with environmental protection, water resource and other government departments.

I am very pleased to have this opportunity to work with these agencies in strategic partnerships to keep their citizens safe and their cities flourish. AGT understands the importance of maintaining and managing critical infrastructure and is committed to cooperating with the People’s Republic of China to develop cutting-edge technology solutions to address the country’s needs.”

Wu Wenxiang, director general, Science and Technology Promotion Center for Ministry of Water Resources, said, “The advanced technologies developed by AGT International will assist the People’s Republic of China in shifting from traditional water resources management to a more efficient and sustainable approach. This agreement provides us with an exciting opportunity for a breakthrough in the creation of an advanced management system that will protect our river embankments and provide our citizens with early flood warnings. The solutions provided by AGT International are truly innovative, and will give us a foundation for the continued security of our national infrastructure. We are happy to be able to benefit from AGT’s success in implementing public safety solutions in other parts of the world by adopting these highly effective technologies to our nation’s water management system.”
