On May 9, the 2019 China International Fair for Investment and Trade (CIFIT) & Belt and Road Investment Congress (BRIC) held its first information release conference in Beijing where many projects were helped to build connections with investors and invited to the fair scheduled for September in Xiamen.

Over the years, CIFIT has committed to pushing forward the construction of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) by partnering with countries and regions along the route in organizing exhibitions, fairs, forums, and seminars. The series of activities have created numerous business opportunities and shared development achievements, building a platform for international investment cooperation and playing an important role in future development.

Known for concentrated modern industry clusters and leading business environment, Xiamen has proved itself as a harmonious city perfect for living and working. Hu stressed that investment promotion services will continue to be improved relying on major exhibition activities such as CIFIT.
