As one of the founding members of the Asian Productivity Organization (APO) , the China Productivity Center (CPC) not only actively participates in APO's activities and programs, but also enhances its exchanges and cooperation with the other member countries.
In recent years, due to advantages in the development of green productivity, smart manufacturing and environmental sustainability, the APO designated the China Productivity Center as the "APO Center of Excellence on Green Productivity" (COE on GP) and "APO Center of Excellence on Smart Manufacturing" (COE on SM) in 2013 and 2019 respectively. The Center aims to assist member countries in upgrading their industries and also find ways to introduce smart manufacturing.
Furthermore, CPC has set up the Agricultural Knowledge Market Place (AKM) to provide the agriculture-based knowledge, services, technology and expert exchange and cooperation program both at home and abroad. The center aims to enhance the contribution to the agricultural productivity of APO member countries.
