All the friends from the press:
First, on behalf of the CIFIT organizing committee, I’d like to express our sincere thanks to your support and publicity activities to the CIFIT promotion.
In a few days, the 13th CIFIT would open officially. With the great effort and cooperation of the sponsor, co-sponsors and member units, the CIFIT preparatory work has been finished and now, I would like to introduce the new features, the grand activity arrangement and the latest development in preparation of the CIFIT.

I. The new features of this CIFIT and its latest development in preparation
This year’s CIFIT coincides with the 60th anniversary of the founding of the New China, and it is also a critical year for the whole world to cope with the international financial crisis. At the same time, the peaceful relationship between the two sides of Taiwan straits is also in good shape, and Haixi development is elevated to a national strategic level. Faced with these new opportunities and challenges, the organizing committee strengthens our preparatory work to update the actual effect of this year’s CIFIT.

There are five upgrades on this CIFIT:
(I) The CIFIT, as a brand, is increasingly known to the world and it attracts more and more exhibitors and participants.
Faced with the negative factors caused by the world financial crisis, the organizing committee devotes more efforts in inviting exhibitors and has achieved good effects. The exhibitors both from home and abroad show great enthusiasm and the participants are of a high level, which also shows that the CIFIT, a platform for international investment and an international brand, is a real attraction.
This year’s CIFIT attracts great attention from institutions, economic organizations, chambers of commerce and enterprises both from home and broad. Up to now, 504 participants from 83 countries and regions have registered to participate. They include United Nations Industrial Development Organization—UNIDO, United Nations Conference on Trade and Development—UNCTAD, World Association of Investment Promotion Agencies—WAIPA, various states from USA, Ministry of economy from Holland, European Commission of Investment, The economic and trade mission of Department 57 of France, Federation of Filipino-Chinese Chambers of Commerce & Industry, INC, Germany Trade and Invest, Polish Chamber of Commerce, Argentina Chinese Federation of Industry and Commerce, Chinese Business Chamber o f Canada, Japan China Investment Promotion Organization, Thai Young Chinese Chamber Of Commerce, and Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry. Those who have registered to come to the fair include over 300 high-rank government officials, leaders of international organizations and of chambers of commerce, and presidents or vice presidents of transnational companies. It is estimated that there will be over 550 delegations of overseas participants. Within China, high-rank leaders and officials who will participate are from 38 national departments and ministries and 40 domestic member units including National People’s congress, National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, Ministry of Commerce, National Develop and Reform Commission and so on. It is estimated that about 100 leaders at the ministerial level will attend the fair.

(II) With more professional exhibitions, the scale of the CIFIT this year is largest.

The scale of this year’s CIFIT is larger than any of its previous 12 years. The exhibition floor covers an area of 60,000 square meters with 2800 exhibition booths, an increase of 8000 square meters. There are also some new exhibition areas such as Real Estate Investment and Transaction Area, Cultural and Creative Industry Area, Agriculture Investment Exhibition Area and Taiwan Investment Exhibition Area. The exhibition areas of development zones and commodities from Taiwan are expanded and the exhibition of some key fields are strengthened, such as real estate investment, cultural creation, tourism, energy saving and environment protection and agriculture. At the same time, some professional activities are organized, such as “The first China International Real Estate Investment Fair”, the exhibition hall of “China International Cultural and Creative Industries”, “the Fifth Straits Tourism exposition” and “Panxin Arts Festival”. The CIFIT also sets an exhibition area for Xiamen exhibition to publicize Xiamen exhibition industry.

From the result of exhibitor invitation, we see that in order to cope with the international financial crisis, the countries all over the world highlight transnational investment and cooperation. The CIFIT attracts great attention from various foreign institutions, international economic organizations, chambers of commerce, and enterprises. They show great enthusiasm to participate. There are 58 overseas governmental delegations, with the total exhibition area of 15,000 square meters. Many countries and regions have exhibition areas larger than any other year’s, with 128 exhibition booths from Taiwan, 80 from Brazil, 56 from South Africa, 50 from Hong Kong, 33 from Thailand, 22 from France, 22 from Italy and 20 from Holland.

(III) Social groups and organizations show great enthusiasm for the participation. The forums and symposiums are featured as concrete and high-level.
The CIFIT is an authoritative global platform to publicize investment policies, discuss theoretical issues and release latest information. The “International Investment Forum” held every year and dozens of symposiums on hot investment issues have become a focus of the world. It has been confirmed that 67 forums and symposiums of various kinds will be held during the CIFIT. The theme of this year’s International Investment Forum held by the Ministry of Commerce is “promote transnational investment, boost economic recovery”. By then, officials from the State Council, the CPPCC, the Ministry of Commerce as well as the Vice Prime Minister from Mauritius, Trade Commissioner of the European Commission, Dutch minister of Economic Affairs, Vice Chairman of the Council for the Development of Cambodia will come to the forum and give speeches.

Over 40 countries and regions will hold investment promotion conferences, such as USA, Canada, Germany, Poland, Iran, Cuba, Mexico, South Africa, and so on. Dozens of provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions in China will also hold investment environment seminars or investment project promotion conferences.

It is worth mentioning that increasingly the CIFIT plays a much more important role in releasing information and institutions both from home and abroad take this opportunity to hold relevant activities. During this CIFIT, some professional forums will be held by institutions both from home and abroad, such as U.S. Etech Securities Group, ASF Group, European Commission of Investment, the British journal agency The Banker, the Magazine the First Finance, China Foundation for the Development of Folklore Culture, Chinese Association of Agricultural Science Societies, the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Science, and Chinese County Economic Development Center. At present, all the organizing work involved in the forums and symposiums has been finished and the reception and supporting work has been carried out.

(IV) This CIFIT highlights investment in specific fields and regional integration, attracting great attention from investors both from home and abroad.
The CIFIT matchmaking symposiums will further highlight investment in specific fields and regional integration, which last for five days (sep. 7—11). Apart from some regular matchmaking symposiums such as comprehensive ones, the ones for listed companies, service outsourcing, investment funds, high level ones between governments and enterprises, Taiwan-Funded enterprises, patent technology, and modern agriculture, this CIFIT will also hold some new matchmaking symposiums, such as the ones for enterprises’ financing road show projects, for energy-saving and overseas scholars investment projects, for the real estate projects, for cultural and creative industry projects and for enterprises’ mergence, with altogether 14 matchmaking symposiums. The matchmaking symposium of brand franchising will be extended from one day to two days. Meanwhile, the organizing committee has made more efforts to promote “going out”, inviting and organizing competitive Chinese enterprises to participate and encouraging overseas institutions with investment projects to attend the fair.

This year, the member units of the CIFIT have filed over 11,000 investment projects, with the total investment projects in record exceeding 50,000, among which, over 4,000 projects are from foreign land. At present, there are about 1,000 investors who have registered to attend the CIFIT and the organizing committee is working on project matchmaking.
