The 2021 China-Japan-South Korea Conference of Engineering and Technology (CJKCET) opened in Yantai, a coastal city in East China's Shandong province, on May 21.

The event, which took place online and offline, aimed to facilitate scientific technology exchanges between China, Japan, and South Korea under the current dual-circulation development pattern.

More than 280 experts, scholars, and entrepreneurs from the three countries made in-depth exchanges regarding innovation and development of engineering technology at the forums during the conference.

Zheng Deyan, acting mayor of Yantai, made a keynote speech and expressed a warm welcome to guests.

According to Zheng, Yantai has great potential for collaboration opportunities with Japan and South Korea. Yantai will leverage the Sino-South Korea (Yantai) Industrial Park, Sino-Japan (Yantai) Industrial Park, and the China (Shandong) Pilot Free Trade Zone Yantai Area to promote mutual cooperation.

Yantai will use the conference as an opportunity to further close cooperation and exchanges with experts and entrepreneurs in the field of engineering technology at home and abroad, as well as to create a first-class environment for the development of enterprises, universities, and institutes in Yantai.
