2017 China International Fair for Investment and Trade
The 2017 China International Fair for Investment and Trade (CIFIT) will be held from 18 to 21 September in Xiamen, Fujian. CIFIT is the only international investment promotion event in China aimed at promoting two-way investment. It is also the largest international investment fair certified by the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry (UFI).
The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), in cooperation with partner institutions, will organize the BRICS Plus Business Cooperation Forum on 19 September 2017, in Xiamen, China. The forum will comprise two back to back events: 1) the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Forum on BRICS e-commerce, and; 2) the Chinese Enterprises Green Investment and Financing from a Global Perspective Forum.
The aim of the Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) Forum on BRICS E-commerce is to promote cooperation between public and private sectors in the area of e-commerce, Big Data, and innovation, as well as cooperation and development among SMEs in BRICS and other Asia-Pacific countries. Through this event, UNIDO will contribute to the implementation of the consensus on cooperation adopted at the BRICS Summit on 3-5 September 2017. Further, in cooperation with public and private sectors, UNIDO intends to promote the development of e-commerce, create job opportunities, and innovate in business models.
The aim of the Chinese Enterprises Green Investment and Financing from a Global Perspective Forum is to share the experience of successful Chinese green enterprises with the governments, enterprises and organizations of BRICS countries and other countries. Further, the forum will assist Chinese green enterprises to go globally and promote the exchange and cooperation between Chinese and foreign enterprises. UNIDO will also take this opportunity to create a new momentum for inclusive and sustainable industrial development (ISID) and contribute to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
