In June, Qingdao, the coastal city in east China's Shandong Province, will host the 18th summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), the world's most populous regional organization.

Since the creation of the SCO in 2001, the summit had been held in China three times, twice in Shanghai and once in Beijing. Qingdao is the third host city.

Home to Tsingtao Beer and home appliance giant Haier, Qingdao is becoming a more attractive place to run important multilateral events.

The summit will not only boost Qingdao's tourism, trade and convention and exhibition industries, but will also promote new growth sources and improve the quality of the city's development.
