This conference is themed Biodiversity Conservation & Ecological Restoration. During the seminar, Yerik Sarsebek Ashimov, the Deputy Secretary-General of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, Zhai Guiying, Deputy Director of Foreign Economic Cooperation Office, Ministry of Environmental Protection of China, and other Chinese and foreign guests visited the Shanghai Jiading Nanxiang Underground WWTP built by CWEG.

The delegation led by Mr. Ashimov inspected the above-ground landscape park, water science museum, intelligent operation and maintenance center, and underground processing unit. Exuberant woods, blue sky, clean lake. The park came alive in the pleasant spring. There are also green spaces, football field, and a children's playground in the park. The ecological lake is clear enough to see fish swimming around. Water used to replenish the park’s water system and the ecological lake of more than 20,000 square meters is of high-quality reclaimed water that meets the national standard.
The landscape park and water science museum on the ground effectively solve the neighbor disputes that are common to traditional sewage treatment plants. Meanwhile, the plant provides citizens with a beautiful living environment and cozy leisure space. It is hailed as “the most beautiful water plant in China.”
