10th Asia-Pacific Eco-Business Forum in Kawasaki

City of Kawasaki is working in concert with the United Nations Environment Programme(UNEP) to use our rich experience in environmental protection and the outstanding environmental technologies of Kawasaki-based companies to contribute internationally to the environmental policies and measures and environmental awareness of cities in the developing world.
