East China's Anhui province is sending invitations to overseas Chinese entrepreneurs as the 2018 World Manufacturing Convention and the 2018 Anhui Investment & Trade Expo are slated to be held together in the provincial capital Hefei in May, said the Anhui Federation of Returned Overseas Chinese Tuesday.
The events will focus on new industries including quantum communication, information technology, high-end equipment manufacturing, new energy vehicles, intelligent robots and intelligent home appliances.
The federation has been sending out invitations around the world to bring together related business programs and high-caliber talents.
Several groups of overseas Chinese entrepreneurs have taken business trips to the province at the invitation of the federation. It has been confirmed that contracts worth 6 billion yuan ($952 million) will be signed for 20-plus programs covering the fields of new materials, new energy, information technology, biological medicine, modern services, equipment manufacturing, culture and sports. Many other programs are still under negotiation.
