The foundation laying ceremony for the China-Germany Ecological Park, the first smart eco-park to be jointly built by the two countries, took place in the Qingdao Economic and Technological Development Zone in Shandong province on Dec. 6. The park is the first concrete outcome of the two countries' cooperation in energy conservation and environmental protection.

The eco-park is a demonstration project for China-Germany intergovernmental cooperation on sustainable development. Covering 10 square kilometers, it is located in the Qingdao Economic and Technological Development Zone.

"I hope the China-Germany Ecological Park will set strict technical standards in energy conservation and environmental protection and become a center for the application and promotion of China's energy conservation and environmental protection technology," Qingdao's Deputy Mayor Yao Jian said.

"I hope the eco-park can help promote the establishment of the blue economic zone and the restructuring of the Chinese economy, and add fresh impetus to China's economic transformation," Yao added.

Qingdao municipal government has carried out several promotional activities for the eco-park in Berlin, Shanghai, Guangzhou and other cities in cooperation with a German company. Most German and European enterprises in Shanghai have shown interest in the park.
