The Shipbuilding Working Group represents European, world-leading companies that design, manufacture, maintain and repair ships, as well as maritime equipment manufacturers, classification societies, service providers and cruise operators. In a world that is more interconnected than it has ever been, the shipbuilding sector is a strategic driver for the development of a competitive and sustainable maritime transportation system. In this regard, shipyards and manufacturers of ship components play an essential role in satisfying the increasing global demand for cleaner and safer transportation systems. European companies in the sector have a long track record of contributing to the environmental sustainability and increased energy efficiency of ships. Having operated in China for more than 20 years, European manufacturers of ships and ship components are deeply committed to the market and want to continue to contribute their know-how and best practises to its development. This is in line with the goals of the 19th Communist Party of China (CPC) National Congress and the second and third plenary sessions of the 19th CPC Central Committee, where the aim was stated that China will build “a manufacturing power and maritime power, centring on improving the quality, efficiency and the benefits of shipbuilding, focusing on comprehensively promoting digital shipbuilding”, as well as to “promote innovation, improve weak links, strengthen the foundation and set good examples to promote the digital and networked integration of ship design, building, management and service.”
