From July 26 to 28, the Bao'an Industry Development Expo 2018, organized by the 
Economic Promotion Bureau of Bao'an District, was held at the Shenzhen 
Convention and Exhibition Center as well as 12 other venues across Bao'an 
District. 

The themes of this expo included "Core of the Greater Bay Area", "The Highland

Over 230,000 visits were recorded. Most importantly, 31 contracts for major 
projects totaling over 76 billion yuan, were signed. Some of the main signing

and intelligent manufacturing, among others.

For the first time, the expo set up an area called the Sino-German Cooperation 
Demonstration. In the recent years, Bao'an has promoted cooperation between 
China and Germany, helping to forge good trade partnerships with German 
businesses. The connections between government and business associations have 
increased in recent years. In 2017, the total import and export volume between 
Bao'an and Germany was over USD1.5 billion.

During the expo, several keynote conferences and events were held, including 
the Era of Bay Area - Bao'an Industry Transformation and Upgrading Summit Forum

and elites from key industries worldwide participated and provided new ideas 
for industrial development in Bao'an.

2018 marks the 40th anniversary of the reform and opening up policy in China. 
As one of the pioneers, Bao'an aims to build itself into the core of the 
Greater Bay Area, and attract more overseas capital with good business 
environment.

International Airport, ranked first in the Top Ten Most Beautiful Airports in 
the World. Bao'an District of Shenzhen City, is located in the core of the 
Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. Planes take off and land in the 
area that served as a hub of the ancient Maritime Silk Road in the Han and Tang 
dynasties.
