Meng Fanli, Mayor of Qingdao, chaired the opening ceremony.
In his keynote speech, Wang Qingxian pointed out that the sudden outbreak of COVID-19 spread all over the world, breaking the order of life, society and economy. The world is changing, but the thought of Qingdao to build a venture capital center of the world remains unchanged! Globalization may change its mode and appearance, and encounter temporary setback, but it will never be the end of globalization. Perhaps it is just the beginning of a new globalization. As an important part of the world economic network, China's huge market demand is both for domestic production and the international supply.
Under the pressure of the epidemic, the internet has stepped into a new stage, which is the industrial internet, said Wang Qingxian, adding that Qingdao has a complete industrial system and diverse application scenarios, and aims to become a global center of the industrial internet on the basis of Artificial Intelligence Industrial Community and Haier- COSMOPlat, which will attract new industrial elements, promote their integration, and open up more investment areas and project sources for venture capital funds.
