CW was invited to the 2019 Investment Promotion Conference of the Design Capital of Guangzhou on 26 July 2019.
The Design Capital will be located in the northern corner of Baiyun New Town (downtown area) for design-related companies, R&D centers, and industrial design offices. With Mountain Baiyun to its east and Baiyun Lake to its west, it lies in the leading position of Guangzhou-Shenzhen Technological Innovation Aisle and the innovation nodal point in Guangzhou Airport Economy Model Zone.
Four major design sectors, three service platforms with twenty-one programs will be laid out in an attempt to build all-in-one industrial and residential facilities covering such functions as office, business, exhibition, accommodation, and leisure. As a key municipal program, the Design Capital is positioned to be molded into an international brand cradle for aggregation of design industries in Guangzhou-Hong Kong-Macao Great Bay Area, the first trade center for the Belt and Road Initiative design services in South China and the first B2B sharing platform for the design industry in Guangzhou.
