Visit from the China International Fair for Investment and Trade (CIFIT)

Oslo Chamber of Commerce received a delegation visit last week promoting The China International Fair for Investment and Trade (CIFIT). The aim was to encourage Norwegian companies to visit the fair. CIFIT has more than 100.000 visitors every year from more than 120 countries. CIFIT is approved by the State Council of the People´s Republic of China and takes place in September every year in Xiamen, China. The fair is themed on «Introducing FDI» and «Going Global» and focuses on investment negotiation and investment policy promotion, coordinated development of national and regional economy, as well as economic and trade exchanges across the Taiwan Strait, both nationally and internationally.

CIFIT is currently China’s only international investment promotion event aimed at facilitating bilateral investment and is 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 optimum opportunity for business people at home and abroad to get an overview on the investment climates in China and other countries. It also provides them with the 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, implementing strategies for coordinated development of regional economies, and promoting bilateral and multilateral economic exchanges and partnerships. CIFIT is poised to become the world’s most prestigious international investment exposition.
