The significant role that China’s private sector can play in the AIDS response was emphasized during a recent visit to UNAIDS Geneva headquarters by Li Hejun, Chairman of Hanergy Holding Group, a leading multinational clean energy company.
Mr Li, who is also the Vice Chairman of the All-China Federation of Industry & Commerce, was hosted by UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibé on 12 November. The two leaders had a wide-ranging discussion about how best to reinforce and extend the involvement of the private sector in an effective response to HIV. They also spoke about the future of global social responsibility.
Hanergy also hosts the China Red Ribbon Foundation. In addition, Mr Li expressed his willingness to actively enhance his company’s commitment to the AIDS response and cooperate with UNAIDS in the field of international health and development.
"In addition to promoting business development in the area of clean energy, Hanergy is committed to actively contribute to the AIDS response. We will undertake a leading role in the areas of global social responsibility for local communities in China and Africa."
"Chairman Li Hejun is an inspiring example of the private sector’s unique global role in helping to end the AIDS epidemic."
