2018 Qingdao Shanghe Summit
- Jun 09, 2018 -

What is the SCO?

The predecessor of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization was the "Shanghai Five" mechanism. The "Shanghai Five" mechanism originated in the negotiation process of strengthening trust and disarmament in the border areas that began in the late 1980s with China as one party and Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan as other parties. On June 14, 2001, the heads of state of the Shanghai Fivemember states and Uzbekistans president met in Shanghai and signed a joint statement to allow Uzbekistan to join the Shanghai Fivemechanism. On the 15th, the heads of state of the six nations jointly issued the "Declaration on the Establishment of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization" and announced the establishment of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization on the basis of the "Shanghai Five" mechanism. The Shanghai Cooperation Organization officially announced its birth.


The fifth summit in 2005, the meeting gave observer status to Pakistan, India and Iran;

In the twelfth summit in 2012, the meeting agreed to receive Afghanistan as an SCO observer country and Turkey as an SCO dialogue partner;

The Sixteenth Summit in 2016, the meeting adopted many important documents such as the "Tashgan Declaration of the 15th Anniversary of the Founding of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization", and is an important meeting that connects the past and the future. From this new starting point, the SCO will open a new journey.

The Shanghe Summit was the 18th summit.


Why did the Shanghai Summit choose Qingdao?

From 2008 Olympic Sailing Regatta, 2014 World Horticultural Exposition, APEC Second Senior Officials Meeting, 2016 C20 Conference... to 2018 SCO Summit, World Tourism Cities Federation Qingdao Summit, Shanghai The cooperation of the National Film Festival, the Asia-Pacific Region Arts and Crafts Conference, etc. have brought opportunities and challenges to Qingdao as an international city, and it has also attracted global attention.

From the end of 2016, the National Center Cityhas been in contact with Qingdao. From the leadership of the Central Academy of Regulations, the leadership of the National Development and Reform Commission, to the Secretary of the Qingdao Municipal Party Committee and the Mayor's speech on several important occasions, they all expressed the strong desire of Qingdao to create a national center city. However, I am afraid that this is not as good as holding the Summit of the People's Republic of China to achieve the aspirations of Qingdao.

In 2017, Qingdao successfully hosted important international events such as the Asia-Europe High Level Forum on Digital Interconnection, the Asian Media Summit, the second meeting of the BRICS Coordinators, the International Education Informatization Conference, and the International Standardization Forum. The international event laid the foundation for Qingdao's 2018 development.

At present, the SCO regional economic cooperation has entered a new era, and the economic development of all countries is seeking new impetus for development. The "Belt and Road" strategy put forward by China and the international economic cooperation initiative to jointly build the Silk Road Economic Belt will become an important development breakthrough.

Qingdao, with its outstanding geographic location and developed port economy, is itself an advantageous manufacturing region. Tsingtao Brewery, Haier, Hisense, and Loewe are well-known globally. As the national "One Belt and One Road" strategy and the "Made in China 2025" strategy have been issued, more and more first-class companies have chosen to take root in Qingdao. FAW, China Motor and Wanda have leveraged on the advantages of Qingdao to carry the policy. Lovol Engineering Machinery Group is committed to integrating global resources, driven by innovation, and creating top-notch products that are competitive in the global market. This kind of business operation model is the epitome of many manufacturing enterprises in Qingdao, and is also the source of power for China's manufacturing industry to take off.

Last year, the total import and export volume of Qingdao and the Belt and Roadcountries was 248.527 billion yuan, an increase of 11.2%, accounting for 49.4% of the citys total import and export trade; the total import and export trade with the SCO-related countries was 39.02 billion yuan, an increase of 12.5%. The city's total import and export trade was 6.4%.

Qingdao has successfully obtained its qualifications for its own pivotal positioning and economic achievements in the One Belt and One Roadstrategy.
