The 2022 China International Fair for Trade in Services (CIFTIS) opened in Beijing on Wednesday.
This year's trade fair, which lasts through Sept. 5, will include a global services trade summit, exhibitions, forums, new product and technology releases, business discussions, and many other supporting activities.
It will focus on green development amid China's efforts to achieve its carbon peak and carbon neutrality goals.
The fair, launched in 2012, will have an environmental services section for the first time this year.
This section will focus on such topics as low-carbon energy, the climate and carbon economy, and carbon neutrality and green technology.
CIFTIS has been expanding continuously over the past decade, evolving into one of the three major platforms in China promoting opening-up and international cooperation.
The fair this year also features greater internationalization.
Over 2,400 companies participate in the exhibition offline, and among them are around 400 Global Fortune 500 companies and industry-leading enterprises, representing a larger share than its last edition.
