Transforming “Made in China” to “Created in China”
A conference on collaboration in design between the UK and China

“With the transformation of London’s industrial Royal Docks, it is a fitting location for China Design Week and this fascinating conference. The importance of design and our relationship with China cannot be overstated. There is huge potential for learning and collaboration, and it’s in this spirit that we welcome China Design Week.”

Munira Mirza
Deputy Mayor for Education and Culture of London

China Design Week (CDW) supported by the China Britain Business Council (CBBC) is pleased to host this timely conference to discuss the possibility of increasing creative links between China and the UK.

Even though China has become the world’s second largest economy and the world’s largest manufacturing base, the term ‘made in China’ still has negative connotations.

Transforming “Made in China” to “Created in China” is a key challenge for Chinese enterprises urgently in need of world-class creative design. What are the best methods, models and practices of designing? What is the value and the role of creativity in emerging markets? What are the contemporary ideas in design thinking? Are they appropriate in the Chinese context? What is “good design?”

This afternoon event will bring together investors, industry leaders, architects, engineers, designers, innovators and academics - from a variety of sectors - to provide the opportunity to talk, hear new ideas, discuss best practice in collaboration and find new ways to work together.

This networking event provides an excellent platform for dialogue and communications in this emergent market.
