Zhejiang Province Visits B.C.

In August 2015, a delegation of senior officials from Zhejiang’s Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development (MOHURD) travelled to B.C. to increase their understanding of how wood-frame construction can assist the province to meet its objectives in the areas of building energy efficiency, building quality and safety, and affordable housing.

The visit follows on the signing of a formal MOU between Zhejiang’s MOHURD and the B.C. Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations conducted in 2014 by video conference – a first for this kind of agreement.
