The China International Fair for Investment and Trade (CIFIT), approved by the State Council of the People's Republic of China, takes place in September every year in Xiamen, China. Themed on "Introducing FDI" and "Going Global", CIFIT focuses on nationality and internationality, investment negotiation and policy promotion, coordinated development of national and regional economies, and economic and trade exchanges across the Taiwan Straits.
CIFIT is currently China's only international investment promotion event aimed at facilitating bilateral investment. It's also the largest global investment event approved by the Global Association of the Exhibition industry. CIFIT has the following major components: investment and trade exhibition, the International Investment Forum (IIF), a series of seminars on hot investment issues, and investment project matchmaking symposia.
CIFIT not only comprehensively showcases the investment environments, policies, projects and corporate products in all provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities in China, but also attracts investment promotion agencies from more than 40 countries and regions. CIFIT offers optimal opportunities for business people at home and abroad to get an overview of the investment climates in China and other countries. It also provides them with a one-stop shopping service for multilateral investment cooperation, helping them to select from the widest range of investment projects and business partners.
In response to the adjustments of the world's industrial structure and in view of the emerging trends, challenges and opportunities in international investment cooperation, CIFIT carries out China's latest national development agenda, implements strategies for coordinated development of regional economies, and promotes bilateral and multilateral economic exchanges and partnerships. CIFIT is poised to become the world's most prestigious international investment exposition.
