On the evening of November 4, the 5th China International Import Expo (CIIE) opened at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (NECC, Shanghai). More than 1,600 units and 5,500 people from Anhui province participated in this expo.
This year's CIIE has a broader range of participating countries. A total of 145 countries, regions, and international organizations participated in the exhibition, and 284 Fortune 500 companies and industry leaders participated in the business exhibition, the number of which exceeded the previous one.
At this CIIE, Anhui province set up a "This Past Decade of Anhui" showroom in the comprehensive exhibition area of the "This Past Decade of China." The showroom is located in the 6.2H exhibition hall of the NECC (Shanghai), with an area of 216 square meters and exhibition walls around it.
Since the first CIIE was held in Shanghai in November 2018, Anhui has organized and participated in the expo every year and actively promoted international procurement and investment, cultural exchanges, and cooperation. In the previous four CIIEs, Anhui business delegations' trading volumes ranked among the country's top.
At this CIIE, the government of Anhui organized enterprises in high-end equipment manufacturing, new energy, modern medicine, synthetic biology, and other industries to come to negotiate. "Through the preliminary survey, we learned that the intended transaction amount of our province is about 1.597 billion US dollars." A relevant person from the Anhui Provincial Department of Commerce said.
