The event featured 16 simultaneous sessions throughout Shandong's 16 cities, with the primary site in Jinan, the provincial capital.
Shandong Party Secretary Li Ganjie attended the event and used video links to engage with Fortune Global 500 CEOs.
Shandong's marine economy, according to Li, is among the best in China, and its advantage is that land and sea resources can be developed collectively. Shandong has advocated for the development of the modern marine industry as one of the top 10 industries.
