13th CIFIT to Highlight New Features

1. Richer content

In light of emerging trends in the global industrial structure and the fair's two major themes, "Going Global" and "Attracting Foreign Direct Investment (FDI)," CIFIT will vigorously promote investment in industrial projects and give priority to property development, cultural creative industries, tourism, agriculture and development zones. New halls will also be set up, such as the China International Property Investment and Trading Hall, the China International Cultural Industries Hall and the Agricultural Investment Projects Area.

2. More international focus

To date, organizations in 58 countries and regions have signed up for exhibition at CIFIT, and the number is expected to rise to 80. More than 250 organizations in over 60 countries and regions will send delegations to CIFIT, while the United States, France, Italy, Britain, Australia, the Netherlands and Brazil will host a "pavilion day" or other thematic events.

3. More conspicuous Taiwan-oriented features

The 13th CIFIT will, for the first time, host a "Taiwan pavilion day" and set up a Taiwan investment projects exhibition area, a Taiwan commodities exhibition area and a Taiwan premium products exhibition area. It will also host investment and trade matchmaking symposia for Taiwan businesses.

4. Stronger investment promotion functions

In line with the national industrial direction and in light of hot socioeconomic topics, the 13th CIFIT will organize 11 dedicated matchmaking symposia and further strengthen its industrial matchmaking functions. CIFIT will accentuate its role as a "barometer" for international investment and continue to boost its information release functions. For the first time, CIFIT will set up the Promotion and Exhibition Area for Products From Foreign Countries/Regions and expand the Taiwan Commodities Exhibition Area, as well as exhibition areas for the equipment manufacturing industry, energy conservation, environmental protection and new building materials to promote trade cooperation and further enhance its trade functions.

Mayor Liu discussed logistical support for the 13th CIFIT. Xiamen has formed a special committee to coordinate logistical support for the upcoming CIFIT and preparations are going smoothly, Liu said. He is confident that Xiamen has the abilities and resources to further grow the city's convention and exhibition industry. Before concluding his speech, Mayor Liu extended a cordial invitation to media organizations and domestic and overseas business communities to join CIFIT to explore business opportunities and promote mutual development.
