German engineering giant Siemens on Friday signed an agreement with the Sino-German Ecopark to set up its first overseas innovation center for intelligent manufacturing in Qingdao, a coastal city in east China.

The center will be devoted to technological innovation, development and applications in fields such as intelligent manufacturing, robotics, modern logistics, big data, information security and smart cities, according to the agreement.

The center will bring advanced digital and automation technologies to China, said Zhu Xiaoxun, senior executive vice president of Siemens Ltd., China.

The center will also work with Chinese companies, particularly those in Qingdao, to develop technologies suitable for China and establish some national and industrial demonstration projects and technology standards, said a spokesman of the Sino-German Ecopark.

Intelligent manufacturing is the core of China's "Made in China 2025" plan, and this innovation center will support the plan's implementation in Qingdao, said the spokesman.
