Dear Members and Friends of the CICC,
September 19th, 2020 marked the end of the 22nd edition of the China International Industry Fair (CIIF) who took place at the National Exhibition and Convention Center, Shanghai.
The 2020 edition was very successful and satisfactory for the China-Italy Chamber of Commerce, who organized for the first time the Italian National Pavilion, with the support of ICE/ITA (Italian Trade Agency) and all the Italian diplomatic and consular network in China.
The key figures of CIIF clearly show the outstanding results obtained by CICC thanks to its long-time engagement and networking activity in China. The Italian National Pavilion was attended by 47 exhibitors and was the only National Pavilion, achieving an impressive participation.
There have been 134 media reports on the Italian presence covering the signature of two MoUs, one between the CICC and SUMEC Business Consulting Co. Ltd and one between Shanghai SMEs Service Center of the Department of Industry, the CICC and Creative Twin Cities.
The fair has also been a great opportunity for strengthening Sino-Italian relations, through the establishment of solid relationships with local authorities, such as the Shanghai Municipal People’s Government and the Zhangjiang Science City.
The excellencies of the Italian mechanical industrial sector and the synergies with the Chinese system were highlighted during the 1st Sino-Italy Industrial Innovation Forum and the Seminar on Sustainable Technology, Mechanics and Mobility. The Seminar complemented the Italian companies’ exhibition at the Italian Pavilion at CIIF, providing the audience with a better understanding of the industrial advancements and innovation skills of the Italian mechatronic sector describing the new paradigms of global sustainability in the post-pandemic scenario. Additionally, during the Fair several companies gave their presentations: Bonfiglioli Drives (Shanghai) Co. Ltd., Danieli Metallurgical Equipment & Service (China) Co., Ltd., Marposs (Nanjing) Automation Co., Ltd, Pininfarina Shanghai Co. Ltd., Virtuarch Architecture Design Consulting (Shanghai) Co., Zenit Pumps (China) Co., Ltd and Zoppas Industries Hangzhou Ltd.
Finally, to celebrate the successful show the China-Italy Chamber of Commerce invited all the Members, Exhibitors and Friends to the CIIF Closing Dinner at Al Borgo Restaurant.
The CICC thanks all the exhibitors, the visitors and the institutions that made this event possible and looks forward the 2021 edition of the event.
