A well-grounded success for Dalian -- the home of the China International Software & Information Service Fair
The locale of the event, Dalian, is a coastal city in Northern China. Referred to as the "Northern Pearl", Dalian is one of the regions in China to witness the earliest and most rapid development of the software and information services industries. Multinational companies, many of which are Fortune 500 firms, have, along with many of China's leading companies and numerous local firms have chosen to locate in Dalian, forming an important business cluster. The city lays claim to several firsts: one of the first in China to become a base for services outsourcing, one of the first in the country to form a software industry cluster focused on innovation as well as China's only "National Software Industry Globalization Demonstration City". The number of software companies has grown to over 2,000, while the number of developers living in the immediate area now exceeds 200,000. The city was the first in Northeastern China to serve as a pilot region for e-commerce after the Cross-border E-commerce Comprehensive Pilot Zone was opened in early 2016. Enabled by the "Internet Plus" initiative, a government program to spur the leveraging of the internet by manufacturers, Dalian expects to see more of its traditional industries undergo a transformation, attract more companies of all sizes, and promote the development of new forms of foreign trade. In the meantime, with the presence of well-established industries including machinery, electronics, petrochemicals, textiles and clothing, metallurgy and building materials manufacturing, food, and pharmaceuticals, Dalian plans to actively develop B2B cross-border e-commerce that features transactions of raw materials and other commodities in bulk, expand imports and exports, and promote a comprehensive revival of the old industrial base.
