A group of China's top entrepreneurs will meet in about two weeks to discuss ways to make businesses greener.

The China Entrepreneur Club, comprised of 46 leaders of top private companies in the country, will hold its 8th China Green Companies Summit, an annual economic business forum on sustainable business development, in Shenyang, capital of Northeast China's Liaoning province from April 20 to 22.

This year's summit, focusing on building up new business value, will cover topics such as the Internet, investment, real estate, agriculture, new energy, manufacturing, globalization and Chinese companies' transformation.

Cheng Hong, secretary general of CEC, said that there are some new features this year.

"This year will have some innovations such as helping Chinese and foreign company leaders have better interaction, and there is a special event called the Model United Nations," Cheng said at a news conference at Tsinghua University in Beijing on Wednesday.

"Some current hot topics such as Internet financing and environmental protection industries will be discussed at this year's summit, too," Cheng said.

Xu Daqing, vice-secretary general of Liaoning provincial government, said that it means a lot for CEC to hold this year's summit in Shenyang.

"Shenyang is a city famous for manufacturing industries, and, like many parts of China, we are conducting reforms and transformation to make our economy develop in a sustainable and environment friendly way," Xu said.

"I believe the annual summit held by CEC, which aims to promote business leaders' entrepreneurial spirit and sustainable business, will bring many opportunities and inspirations to us," Xu said.
