The 2022 East Asia Marine Cooperation Platform Qingdao Forum opened on June 22 in Qingdao West Coast New Area (Qingdao WCNA) in the coastal city of Qingdao, Shandong province. More than 400 distinguished guests from around the world attended the forum online and offline.

Launched in 2016, the East Asia Marine Cooperation Platform is a priority project under the framework of the Belt and Road Initiative. Its annual Qingdao Forum and East Asia Marine Expo have so far attracted nearly 1,400 companies from more than 70 countries.

Themed "Embrace the Ocean Decade for a Shared Future", this year's Qingdao Forum focuses on discussions around the goals put forth in the Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-30) proposed by the United Nations to boost international cooperation for the sustainable development of the oceans.

Li Fengli, general manager of Shandong Port Group (SPG), gave a speech during the forum's opening ceremony. His speech was under the theme of "Promoting the green and low-carbon development of the marine industry, and helping build a healthy and clean ocean". Li presented SPG's regional advantages, and the group's development strategy, as well as the concrete measures SPG has taken to integrate into the country's new development pattern of "dual circulation".

Li added that SPG will introduce more green and low-carbon development measures to make its contributions to the green and low-carbon development of the country's marine industry.

According to Li, SPG will follow the new development philosophy, foster a new development paradigm and strive to achieve high-quality development, aiming to develop it into one of the world's leading green and smart ports, as well as an international shipping hub in Northeast Asia.
