The event showcased Licang's achievements in modern manufacturing and the creative industry as well as its role in boosting upgrading of locally made products.

Industrial design is regarded an indicator of a region's capability to innovate in modern manufacturing. It is also a key aspect in promoting supply-side structural reform of the secondary industry.

Licang, a cradle for modern industrial civilization of Qingdao, experienced times when the manufacturing industry was moved out of the region. It now shoulders the responsibility to rebuild a cluster for local manufacturing with the aim of boosting industrial upgrade and driving the local economy, according to the Licang development and reform bureau.

The district is making progress in reform and innovation. It has attracted many design companies and projects in recent years. It will continue to support talent, knowledge and creation related to the real economy, as well as support commercialization of technological achievements.

Xia Zhengqi, deputy secretary-general of Qingdao, said the city is promoting high-end manufacturing and artificial intelligence. And the effort to accelerate high-quality development of the manufacturing industry and develop industrial design plays an important role in driving innovation, supply-side structural reform and industrial upgrading.

The design week is an open platform for designers and companies to show off their advantages and find business partners. The event included forums, exhibitions, product releases, business matching and discussions.

More than 200 award-winning works of industrial design, including winners of China's Red Star Design Award and local competitions were on display, to popularize the knowledge and cutting-edge trends of the segment.
