In May 2017, Chinese President Xi Jinping announced at the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation that China will hold China International Import Expo (CIIE) starting from 2018.

It is a significant move for the Chinese government to hold CIIE to give firm support to trade liberalization and economic globalization and actively open the Chinese market to the world. It facilitates countries and regions all over the world to strengthen economic cooperation and trade, and to promote global trade and world economic growth in order to make the world economy more open.

The Chinese government sincerely welcomes government officials, business communities, exhibitors and professional purchasers across the world to participate in CIIE and to explore the Chinese market. We would like to work with all countries, regions and international organizations to make CIIE a world-class Expo, providing new channels for countries and regions to do business, strengthen cooperation and promote common prosperity of the world economy and trade.

GCCCC has reserved a booth at CIIE to showcase products and services from Norther Kentucky, Greater Cincinnati and Greater Dayton region.

Chinese Investment in the US coupled with Building Guanxi

This month we’ve held two events. They happened to be on the same night. We saw a great turnout at both events.

First, we had a great discussion with our panel on Chinese investment. Thanks to one of our newest members, Miller Canfield, for collaborating on the project. Three panel members from Miller Canfield have worked rather closely with Fuyao Auto as they have worked to begin operations at a new plant in Moraine, Ohio. We had some great food and the Phoenix club turned out to be a great venue.

The after party took place at Rhinegeist, where we munched on Eli’s BBQ and held a drawing. Some lucky folks went home with brand new slippers for the coming winter. Join at our next Beer and Guanxi in December. We’ll be doing a charity drive. Details to come.
