Made in China, Loved by the World was released at the 2018 Gree Keeps Forging Ahead Grand Ceremony on May 16 to express the company's faith in its future. It is to be fully upgraded at the WRC with additional robots and musical instruments.
Robot performers are mostly serial numbered GR608 and GRS401. As the most versatile members in the Gree robot family, those in the two categories are valued for agility and stability.
Industrial robots are expected to play a key role in China's development of the intelligent manufacturing industry. Gree has invested 1 billion yuan ($146 million) in research and development over the past five years as part of a broader push to upgrade that industry and advance it in world markets.
