7)               CHINCOLD
Prof. Jia appreciated the support of other countries for the earthquake disaster. No dams were breached by the earthquake nor released large amount of water and no large dams were dangerous for local people, while landslide lakes were more dangerous.
Last year the 4th EADC symposium and the international RCC symposium were held in China. He also talked that hydropower would be more important in future due to global warming.

4.       Proposed agenda from Chairman of any National Committee
