Apr 7, 2020

In the process of "learning from Shenzhen, catching up with Shenzhen", facing the new round of industrial reform represented by artificial intelligence and industrial internet, Qingdao launches a strong offensive of "high-end manufacturing + artificial intelligence", takes artificial intelligence as the leading industry, opens city scene and industrial chain, and strives to seize the commanding heights of emerging industries based on mutual achievements with enterprises.

The reporter learned from the Municipal Development and Reform Commission that Qingdao's strategic emerging industries accounted for 31.8 % of the industries above the designated scale in 2019, with an increase of 3.1% compared with 2018. New industries are accelerating the city's structural “transformation”.

The future of Qingdao is defined by the rapid growth of investment in emerging industries. The investment scale of strategic emerging industries in the city accounts for 30% of the total investment in the city, with a year-on-year growth of 26.5%, which is 4.9% higher than the growth rate of fixed asset investment in the city. Investment in high-tech manufacturing increases by 26.8%, and investment in industrial technical reform increases by 29.7%, both of which are higher than fixed asset investment growth.

Behind the outstanding numbers, it is the urgency of industrial reform in Qingdao.
Artificial intelligence is one of the core driving forces of the new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial reform. Qingdao's desires and efforts for artificial intelligence guiding technologies and leading enterprises are no less than Shenzhen.

Huawei, Iflytek Co, Sensetime, MEGVII, Hikvision and other artificial intelligence global leaders gathered in Qingdao at the end of November, set up an artificial intelligence industrial community with local industry leaders such as Haier, Hisense and GoerTek. With the most powerful high-end manufacturing in Qingdao as the breakthrough point, gathered the resources of science and technology, talents and finance from all over the world to realize coupling in Qingdao and played a huge superimposed effect.

To undertake the "national responsibility" in the field of artificial intelligence in the national artificial intelligence innovation and application pilot area and leverage the future development of the city with artificial intelligence is not only the "industrial ambition" of Qingdao, but also the firm determination of industrial reform.

In the past year, Qingdao has invited enterprises to deeply integrate into urban development, enabling entrepreneurs to create ideas while creating Qingdao.
Through the "screen to screen" signing, investors from all over the world "poured" the huge amount of money into Qingdao, representing their confidence in the city's future development. So far, nearly 300 projects have been signed online in Qingdao, with a total investment of over 390 billion Yuan.

On March 6, Haier put forward the goal of "500 billion Yuan in four years, creating a new Haier". In response, Qingdao will fully support the construction of Haier platform, give full play to the role of Haier platform, integrate global resources, and build Qingdao into the industrial internet capital of the world.

On the evening of March 16, at the online earnest talk of "building on the momentum of the crisis · Qingdao develops together with the enterprise ", Wang Qingxian, member of the Standing Committee of CPC Provincial Committee and Secretary of Municipal Party Committee, and 4 entrepreneurs were present on live broadcast to share their expectations for Qingdao's economic and social development.

On March 26, at the press conference of Jinan-Qingdao-Yantai international investment attraction industrial park, Qingdao once again extended an invitation to the world, sincerely invited every "city partner" and launched the golden policy system of net industrial land of 37.3 square kilometers and the award of up to 100 million Yuan, and extended an "olive branch" to the world's top 500 companies and industry leaders.

In the future, the city will draw a high-spirited curve driven by new industries.
