Speaking about his invitation to the summit, Li Zhenguo said: "It is an honor to be invited to speak about equity in sustainable energy. We know harnessing solar power across the globe will improve local economies and the lives of billions of people."

LONGi is dedicated to making clean energy technology more efficient and more accessible.
