On the afternoon of July 28, 2022, the “From Singapore to Chongqing — Forum on Developing the City of Design” was successfully held at the Chongqing Yuelai International Convention Center, by the Chongqing Sino-Singapore Demonstration Project Administration, in collaboration with the Chongqing Municipal Economy and Information Technology Commission and the Management Committees of Liangjiang New Area. Attendees included Chu Bin, Deputy Director of the Chongqing Sino-Singapore Demonstration Project Administration, Zhao Gang, Party member of the Chongqing Economy and Information Technology Commission, Yang Jincai, First Class Inspector of the Management Committees of Liangjiang New Area in Chongqing, Cai Zonglun, Deputy Director of the Economic Development Board of Singapore in Greater China, and Zhang Yu, Director of the Chongqing Representative Office of the Enterprise Singapore (China-West).
This forum was organized with the support of the China-Singapore (Chongqing) Demonstration Initiative on Strategic Connectivity and adopted a combination of online and offline formats. Mr. Yang Zhongjie, Vice Executive Director of the Singapore Design Council, shared Singapore’s practical experience in promoting the development of the design industry online. Well-known design agencies from Singapore also shared their design concepts and practice cases. Companies from China and Singapore, including SPACElogic Group, Ming labs, Orcadesign, Beijing Taihuohongniao Technology Co., Ltd., Changan Automobile, and Dencare (Chongqing) Oral Care Co., Ltd., shared their experience in industrial design project construction. The event achieved good results through online and offline interactive exchanges.
The government departments of Chongqing and Singapore will collaborate more closely in the next step. With Chongqing design parks as the main carrier, they will organize various and diverse cooperation for associations and enterprises in the Singaporean design industry and the manufacturing enterprises and design institutes in Chongqing. This aims to enhance interaction among entrepreneurs and designers, gain a deeper understanding of the market environment, industrial categories, product characteristics, and enterprise information, and align Singapore’s international design capabilities with Chongqing’s significant industrial design demands. This will further facilitate the achievement of more mutually beneficial cooperation outcomes and help Chongqing join the UNESCO Creative Cities Network as a City of Design, based on its contribution as a national industrial design model city.
