AHK/GIC Shanghai coordinates German Pavilion on CIIE 2018
The China International Import Expo (CIIE) will be held for the first time November 5-10, 2018 in Shanghai. Based on an idea from Xi Jinping, it will be held against the backdrop of the Belt and Road Initiative (New Silk Road) and is supposed to provide the adjoining countries of the Silk Road with a chance to import more products and services to China.
The CIIE is a joined initiative of the Ministry of Commerce (MofCom) of the People’s Republic of China and the Municipal Government of Shanghai and it is being supported by international organizations such as WTO, the Trade- and Development Conference of the UN, the UN-Organization for Industrial Development.
The Association of German Chambers of Commerce and Trade (DIHK) signed a Memorandum of Understanding with MofCom China regarding the support of the fair. As the DIHK’s local subsidiary German Industry & Commerce (GIC - the service provider of the German Chamber Network in China) Greater China | Shanghai was appointed to coordinate German participation on state and company level in CIIE.
Due to the short timeframe until the opening of the fair, there will be no official German Joint Pavilion with government funding. Therefore, GIC Greater China | Shanghai will also provide an exhibition package for small-scale participations. GIC Greater China | Shanghai has already reserved space for German companies of all sizes at a preferential price.
Companies interested in participating in CIIE either with their own space or as part of the German Pavilion can get in contact with GIC Greater China | Shanghai for more information and space reservation:
