WorldSkills to showcase top Chinese innovations

The secretariat of the organizing committee of the 46th WorldSkills Competition is now soliciting exhibits, such as videos, artworks and stories about skills competitions in China, for the WorldSkills Museum.

The museum is part of Shanghai’s bidding plan for hosting the international event known as “Olympics for skills” on September 22 next year.

After Shanghai won the bid in 2017, the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security, the Shanghai government and the WorldSkills Organization signed an agreement in June 2018 to jointly turn a century-old Wing On Department Store warehouse in Yangpu District into a museum.

It’s planned to be completed and open during the 46th WorldSkills Competition and host guests from all of the world for international exchanges, meetings and forums.

The items wanted include books, newspapers, photos, contest entries, badges, trophies and devices used in skills competitions in China.

The museum also needs documents, materials and artefacts to show the development of skills and vocational achievements at different times in China’s history.

Stories of people and brands related to the skills and stories about skills inheritance and innovation are also needed.

The items can be donated, deposited or offered for replication. People can contact the museum via e-mail (, WeChat (WSM_2021) or on 021-6335 3001 through December 31.
