Dear friends,

The Chinese economy is developing steadily with a medium-high speed of growth. In the following five years, China is expecting to import goods and service worth more than ten trillion USD, which provides a historic opportunity for enterprises to enter the huge Chinese market.

In May 2017, Chinese President Xi Jinping announced at the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation in Beijing that China will host China International Import Exposition (CIIE) starting from 2018. The first CIIE will be held in Shanghai during November 5th to 10th, 2018. It represents an important move of China to open its market and promote trade, while also serving as a platform for international cooperation for all countries to showcase their development achievements and discuss global economic and trade issues. The Minister of Commerce of China, Mr. Zhong Shan has already sent the invitation to the Federal Councillor, Mr. Johann Schneider-Ammann.

The first CIIE consists of three parts: Country Pavilion for Trade and Investment, Enterprise and Business Fair as well as International Trade Forum. The Enterprise and Business Fair will cover the following business sectors:

  1. Trade in goods: High-end intelligent equipment; Consumer electronics & appliances; Automobile; Apparel, accessories & consumer goods; Food & Agricultural products; Medical Equipment & Medical care products.
