Despite the global pandemic, the event has attracted more than 1,000 enterprises from home and abroad, which hits a historical height.

"As all parties across the world are battling the COVID-19 and restless efforts are made for the economic recovery, the fair hopes to showcase cutting-edge technologies, leverage innovative resources, as well as promote global innovation collaboration and technology trade development," said Gong Zheng, mayor of Shanghai.

According to Gong, the past seven editions of China (Shanghai) International Technology Fair played an active role in attracting global innovations. The fair has boosted the materialization of technological achievements, as well as facilitating collaboration in innovation.

Quite a few achievements related to livelihoods were presented at the exhibition, which covers technological innovation, urban regeneration, professional technology, innovative ecology and trade service.
