Intelligent manufacturing is the core of the new-round industrial revolution as well as a main direction of "Made in China 2025", said Chen. As the core of the intelligent equipment industry, the intelligent robot is promising. Ningbo is a major advanced manufacturing base in China, as well as China's first "Made in China 2025" pilot and demonstration city which is expected to achieve a gross industrial output value of more than RMB 2 trillion and a net profit of more than RMB 150 billion this year. Ningbo attaches great importance to the development of the intelligent equipment industry represented by intelligent robots, has taken the lead in the pilot practice of industrial automated and intelligent complete equipment upgrading in China, is committed to building a national intelligent economic development demonstration zone and a robot manufacturing and R&D base, and now has more than 120 high-tech enterprises in the intelligent equipment field. The establishment of the special robot industrial base in Meishan will boost Ningbo's robot industry and intelligent economy, the construction of a pilot demonstration city of "Made in China 2025", and the building of Meishan into a "technology innovation and intelligence island" with an output value of RMB 100 billion. In the future, the two sides will achieve win-win.
The settlement of CITIC HIC Kaicheng intelligent robot project in Meishan further consolidated the foundation of Meishan's intelligent manufacturing, and enhanced the popularity and influence of Meishan's intelligent manufacturing. The Administrative Committee purchased 60 explosion-proof fire robots from CITIC HIC Kaicheng Intelligence Equipment Co., Ltd. earlier and presented them to the Ningbo Municipal Fire Brigade, said Chai.
