Wang Jinjian, deputy mayor of Wuxi, met with a delegation from American machinery giant Caterpillar, headed by Gwenne A. Henricks, the company's chief technology officer, on July 27, to discuss further collaboration, Wuxi Daily reported.

Wang extended his welcome to the delegation and spoke highly of the many investments caterpillar has made in Wuxi over the past 10 years. He also spoke of his optimism that the two sides would continue to work together for many years to come.
