The event was sponsored by Pudong Commission of Commerce and co-organized by Pudong Times, Pudong Foreign Investment Association, and local enterprise investment associations. The organizing committee has carefully selected the most typical examples out of over 800 companies headquartered in Pudong new Area. The title of one of the "Top 10 Examples of Pudong Headquarters Economy" indicates that USI has been recognized for its global presence starting from Shanghai and persistent innovation-driven development over the years.
USI has based itself in Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park, Pudong New Area, since 2003 and was listed on the main board of Shanghai Stock Exchange in 2012.

In 2018, USI began to implement the strategy of "modularization, miniaturization, and globalization" to enhance its global resource allocation capability. At the end of 2020, following the acquisition of the French company Financière AFG, the second largest EMS company in Europe, USI initiated the development of the Miniaturization Competence Center (MCC) in Pudong New Area.
