With the continuous development of new and improved consumer electronics, the whole world is facing serious problems caused by the flowof e-waste produced every day. China is the largest supplier of consumer electronics in the world, and is a natural location for this summit-style event, which gathers all the key players in the supply chain to discuss the latest developments and share research and progress in e-waste management.

Joining Shegerian as presenters at the event were representatives from the Chinese Ministry of Environmental Protection, other Chinese government agencies, the United Nations, the Basel Convention, University of China, Tsinghua University, Canon (News - Alert), Hewlett Packard, Haier Home Appliance, the United Nations, NDRC, Greenpeace and many others.

"There's no greater time to forge international relationships than now," said Shegerian. "This event is vitally important because it gives thought leaders from all over the world the opportunity to share what they know. The world is getting smaller and flatter than ever and business leaders need to reach out across continents and communicate if we are to problem-solve and work together to create solutions that will benefit our entire planet."
