IFI Congratulates City of Dalian on Declaration Adoption 

My IFI team and I are very proud to celebrate with the world three new IFI Interiors Declaration adoptions that took place in the month of September. It is my great pleasure to announce the city of Dalian, China as one of these dedicated cities, committed to investing in the power of the Interior Architecture/Design profession to deliver economic, functional, aesthetic and social advantage to the city as a whole. This of course affects the life-quality of all of its people. Dalian joins the other remarkable Chinese cities that have already adopted this historic agreement: Shenzhen (2011), Guangzhou (2012), Wuxi (2013), Shanghai (2016) and Taipei, Taiwan (2011).

In Dalian, the IFI Interiors Declaration was adopted on September 22 by Vice Director of Dalian Urban and Rural Construction Committee, Li Dongye. Ms. Li Dongye highlighted her municipality's forward-thinking approach in the betterment of spaces that support its citizens in all their activities. As a strong member of IFI, China National Interior Decoration Association (CIDA) in conjunction with their local chapter, Dalian Interior Decoration Association (DIDA), these associations were a pivotal force in the promotion of this adoption and its success. Representing IFI, President Elect Steve Leung proudly participated in the Adoption Ceremony.

With this adoption, Dalian confirms its commitment to design development and excellence while recognizing the power and impact of Interior Architecture/Design and its contribution to society.
