Commenting on the competition and exhibition, the Secretary of the Hejian municipal Party committee, Mr Weijiang Yin, said, “Hejian’s glass industry has gone abroad and entered the world. Its products have successively won the Gold Award of China Light Industry Exhibition, Gold Award of Hong Kong International Cultural and Creative Industry Expo, the best design award at the Beijing International Tourism Expo and the German Red Dot Award (China good Design Award).
“Hejian has become the capital of China’s technological glass and the production base of China’s heat-resistant glass. The five consecutive China Hejian technological glass design innovation competitions and the four China Hejian International Lighting glass art festivals have well promoted the exchange of international lighting technology and personnel training, and let the traditional lighting technology pass down and carry forward.
“Thank you very much to CGS and congratulations to all the artists awarded.”
