The seventh China Robotop and Intelligent Economic Talents Summit opened in Yuyao, a county-level city under the jurisdiction of Ningbo in East China's Zhejiang province, on July 15.
A guide on Zhejiang's robotic industrial chain standard system construction was unveiled at the opening ceremony along with the debut of the industrial cluster operating system AENetOS and several new robots developed in Ningbo.
The ceremony also witnessed the signing of 30 investment deals, worth 25.2 billion yuan ($3.88 billion), that will be established in the city, with investors including video-sharing platform Bilibili, Shanshan Corporation, and Fresenius.
This year's summit includes a wide range of activities, including forums, exhibitions, as well as contests related to robotics, smart manufacturing, and artificial intelligence (AI).
More than 2,000 guests, including experts, scholars, and businesses from home and abroad, are slated to attend the summit's online and offline events.
Yuyao was designated as the permanent venue of the annual summit in 2016 after it successfully hosted its third edition.
The summit has become an important event in the robotics field domestically, on par with the World Robot Conference that is held in Beijing.
