CIFIT showcases prospects for investment from throughout China. The event introduces national investment polices, promotes investment projects and recommends a comprehensive range of products from across corporate sector.
With rapid-expanding international scope, CIFIT is increasingly attracting the attention of a rising number of developed and developing countries, as well as numerous international economic organizations, all of which actively participate in the Fairís conferences and exhibitions.? CIFIT has not only evolved into an important platform for China to attract foreign capital and for Chinese enterprises to expand overseas, but has also become a vital bridge for third country (region) to third country (region) investment.
The 10th CIFIT attracted a total of 12,650 overseas visitors from 113 countries and regions, with delegations of 383 foreign institutions from 80 countries and regions. These groups included 110 governmental organization delegations, 101 commercial association delegations, and 11 sister city delegations, as well as 9 delegations from international organizations, 149 delegations from leading global corporations (including Fortune 500 companies), and 3 other delegations from abroad. The overall stature of the Fairís overseas participants showed a notable rise over previous sessions, with 43 vice department-heads or higher government officials, as well as 730 senior leaders from MNCís and renowned companies, and 450 heads from commercial associations.
The 11th CIFIT is supposed to continuously promote international trade, cooperation and investment through a wide array of expositions and exhibits, talks on investment projects, forums and consultations on government policies, and the publication of various items of news and information.
We sincerely welcome government agencies, investors, traders, intermediary organizations, financial institutions and enterprises from across the world to attend the 11th CIFIT. The cost of your accommodation and plane tickets will be paid by DCCC
