At the opening ceremony, Professor Zheng Baodong delivered a speech to express congratulations to the start of the project and pointed out that the relatively low-efficient utility of farmland water resources is an impediment for increasing crop yield, which is an urgent livelihood issue for both China and Europe. He also expressed his wish that China and Europe could further cooperate on the project for greater breakthrough in the field.
