Con Edison announced today that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Beijing Power Supply Bureau to promote cooperation between the two companies.

Representatives of Con Edison, including Chairman and CEO Eugene R. McGrath, Chief Financial Officer Joan Freilich and Con Edison Development President Charles Mouio traveled to Beijing, China for today's signing of the MOU. Con Edison representatives have made several prior trips to China to explore business opportunities and establish relationships for future cooperative endeavors.

The MOU serves as a starting point to identify needs and opportunities that might be pursued for the mutual benefit of both companies and their customers. It expresses both parties' intentions to establish and promote long-term cooperative relations, including the exchange of information and personnel visits.

The MOU was signed by McGrath of Con Edison and by Zhang Yi Shi, Director of the Beijing Power Supply Bureau.
