International Online Report (Reporters Wei Yuchen, Li Lin, Lin Lu): The six-day 4th China International Import Expo ended on the 10th in Shanghai. The current CIIE attracted nearly 3,000 exhibitors from 127 countries and regions to participate in the CIIE. A number of products made their global debuts at the China CIB and their first shows in Asia. On a one-year basis, the accumulated intentional turnover of this CIIE is US$70.72 billion. A number of multinational companies intensively signed contracts for the Fifth CIIE.
“World Premiere” and “Asia Premiere” have become one of the key words of this year’s CIIE. In the new product release area of this year’s CIIE, 62 exhibiting companies released more than 100 new products, cutting-edge technologies and innovative services. More than half of them are world premieres, about 40 in Asia and China, and many products are customized for the Chinese market. France’s Thales Group’s North Asia Vice President and China’s CEO Bei Jiehong said, “We remain confident in the long-term potential of the Chinese market. Some of China’s initiatives include the Foreign Investment Law and foreign investment during the 14th Five-Year Plan period. The use of development plans shows the continuous opening of the Chinese market. As a trusted partner of China’s aviation industry and urban rail transit industry, we have been in China for more than 40 years. We will continue to better participate in China’s development and promote domestic development. International double loop.”
Affected by the new crown pneumonia epidemic, the global economic recovery is weak. However, under the premise of normalizing epidemic prevention and control, China successfully hosted the 4th CIIE, bringing confidence and hope to multinational companies around the world. Qin Jie, a partner in charge of government affairs at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Shanghai, told reporters that during this year’s CIIE, they have gained a lot. “We have signed a lot of contracts with our partners. The CIIE is not only seen as a platform for displaying services and products, but also as a platform for exchanges and cooperation. This includes our strategic cooperation signing with the Nanjing Municipal Government, and (Shanghai) Lujiazui Finance There are a lot of cooperation partners signing contracts.”
It is understood that at this CIIE, enterprises from developed, developing and least developed countries all participated actively. Joseph Mukisa, a young man from Uganda, also met many partners at the CIIE. He told reporters that if he had not participated in the CIIE, he would not have so many opportunities to meet buyers and partners from all over China. This year is his third time to participate in the CIIE. Because of the CIIE, his family business set up a company in Shanghai, named “Shanghai Life”, to engage in trade cooperation between Uganda and China. He also said that during the current CIIE, more than 500 companies have had preliminary cooperation intentions with them. “The CIIE is a very important opportunity for us. We are very honored to be here. If we had not participated in the CIIE, we would not have so many opportunities to contact so many buyers and companies from all over China. To promote our products, everyone understands our products, promotes economic and trade exchanges between the two sides, and at the same time strengthens our friendship and exchanges.”
The number of Fortune 500 and industry-leading enterprises participating in this year’s CIIE reached 281, of which nearly 40 were “new friends” who made their debut for the first time, and more than 120 were old friends who participated in the four consecutive sessions. Many “old friends” also directly locked in the next CIIE. Sun Chenghai, deputy director of the China International Import Expo Bureau, said: “The 5th CIIE has already started. Up to now, companies have booked an exhibition area of more than 150,000 square meters, and the progress is faster than the same period last year. An old friend sent an invitation, welcome to sign up to participate in the 5th China International Import Expo, and feel the spring breeze of China‘s opening up through the platform of the China International Import Expo.”Return to Sohu to see more
