Overview of CIFIT
The Ninth China International Fair for Investment & Trade


        The 9th China International Fair for Investment & Trade (CIFIT) is China's sole nation-wide international investment promotion event focusing on pushing forward bilateral investments. The annual CIFIT, which is held in Xiamen during Sept.8-11, is sponsored by China's Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM), and co-sponsored by United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), International Finance Corporation (IFC) and World Association of Investment Promotion Agencies (WAIPA). The numerous CIFIT members from Provincial Governments throughout China, relevant Ministries, Commissions, and Offices under China's Central Government, as well as national trade associations organize delegations to participate in the Fair.
In March 2005, CIFIT was approved by UFI (the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry). With its themes of “Introducing FDI” and “Going Global”, CIFIT bases itself on China’s policy guidelines concerning absorption of FDI, publicizing China’s policies, laws and environments of foreign investment while encouraging Chinese enterprises to “go global”. Foreign Governmental Institutions, Commercial Associations and enterprises are invited to introduce their foreign investment policies, investment environments and investment projects, and to network with potential Chinese enterprises. The "International Investment Forum" and dozens of seminars on hot investment issues as well as the matchmaking symposia held during CIFIT have contributed to the growing popularity and strategic significance of this international investment venue.
The ASEM Trade and Investment Exposition will be held concurrently with the coming CIFIT. At the 5th ASEM Summit held in Hanoi in 2004, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao put forward a proposal to host an ASEM Expo on trade and investment in 2005 in China. The initiative was approved by the leaders as a new ASEM initiative. The Expo aims at establishing a platform for interaction and cooperation between government officials and business communities as well as between business communities themselves. Through the introduction of ASEM members’ trade and investment policies can display the new technology of various industries and exchange the views between business people and government officials.
Also held together with CIFIT is First Taiwan Strait Tourism Exposition (TSTE). TSTE is organized by National Tourism Bureau, Fujian Provincial Government, and co-organized by Fujian Provincial Tourism Bureau and Xiamen Government, with the assistance of relevant agencies from Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau. For the ninth CIFIT, which was held in 2005, 12,015 businesspersons and guests from more than 125 countries and regions came to Xiamen .1053 contracts and agreements were signed at the fair involving foreign capital of USD 12.243 billion.
