“Guest of Honour” − German participation at the 2016 Western China International Fair in Chengdu, China
Welcome to the German Pavilion at WCIF 2016!
The WCIF or Western China International Fair has been undergoing continuous expansion since its beginnings in 2000, and is seen here and internationally as a window to Western China.
The Chinese government has invited Germany as the Guest of Honour at the WCIF. The Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy has worked together with the exhibition and trade fair committee of the German Deutsche Wirtschaft eV business association in creating Germany’s first pavilion in a modern design to do full justice to Germany as an innovative business location at WCIF 2016.
As the Guest of Honour, Germany will be showcasing its excellent economic performance at WCIF 2016 and its potential as a capable and reliable business partner for economic development in Western and Central China.
The fifty-seven companies at the German Pavilion will be presenting products and services in topics including, but in no way limited to, Industrie 4.0, digitalisation, automotive and supply industries, electric mobility and environmental innovation, renewable energy, energy efficiency, environmental protection, and tourism. This will provide Chinese companies from the region excellent opportunities to forge and maintain business contacts with innovative German companies – especially SMBs.
The aim of the German participation at the WCIF is to extend on business relations at regional level. I am especially looking forward to the participations from Bavaria, Bremen, North Rhine-Westphalia, and Rhineland-Palatinate, and to intensifying regional partnerships.
We in Germany have a long history of excellent business relations with China, and I am certain that this relationship will benefit from our participation in this trade fair, especially in reinforcing regional partnerships.
On behalf of the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy and the exhibition and trade fair committee of the German business association Deutsche Wirtschaft eV, I would like to wish everyone attending all the best of success at WCIF 2016.
