The APEC dialogue on advancing trade facilitation and supply chain connectivity is set to take place during the 2018 CIFIT, according to a meeting held in Xiamen on June 20.


The 2018 CIFIT will be held in Xiamen, Fujian province, from Sept 8 to 11.


Huang Feng, director of Asia-Pacific Model E-Port Network’s (APMEN) operational center in Shanghai, and Yang Shaojing, deputy director of Xiamen Municipal Bureau of Conference and Exhibition Agency, attended the meeting to discuss the details of the fourth Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Public-Private Dialogue on Advancing Trade Facilitation and Supply Chain Connectivity through APMEN.


The dialogue this year will focus on the regional integration of single-window systems for international trade represented by the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), showcase pilot projects of e-ports’ connectivity in the Asia-Pacific region, and explore solutions to the application of blockchain and other emerging technologies to digital trade.
