World Trade Centers Association Announces Participation at 2019 China International Fair for Investment and Trade (CIFIT)

Sep 08, 2019

Xiamen, China (September 8, 2019) — The World Trade Centers Association (WTCA) — a global network of more than 325 highly-connected, mutually supportive businesses and organizations — is pleased to announce its participation at the 2019 China International Fair for Investment and Trade (CIFIT) in Xiamen, China with World Trade Center (WTC) delegates and their business members from Europe, Middle East and Asia-Pacific regions.

Since its inception, CIFIT has become a distinguished platform to connect investors, traders, service providers, and government agencies to China and the rest of the world, including the WTCA’s global network from nearly 100 countries. In recognition of this, WTCA has organized trade missions to attend CIFIT for the past eight consecutive years, and continues to showcase its global network and brand through a WTCA pavilion, roundtables, seminars, and matchmaking sessions during the event.

This year, in partnership with the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT), WTC Xiamen, CCPIT Fujian and the CIFIT Organizing Committee, the WTCA will exhibit its WTCA Access China/CIFIT program featuring an exciting lineup of seminars and forums that will introduce participants to opportunities throughout China and beyond including: the “World Business Leader Roundtable,” which will focus on artificial intelligence; the Fujian-Maritime Silk Road Economic and Trade Matchmaking Symposium; a WTC-Member Roundtable; and multiple industrial tours and business-to-business (B2B) meetings that will create and strengthen connections and interaction with the Chinese market.

“It is our pleasure to support CIFIT’s commitment to the promotion of global trade and investment for the eighth consecutive year. We are particularly pleased to do so again this year as the WTCA celebrates its 50th Anniversary, commemorating ‘A Half Century of Global Trade Connectivity,’” said Mr. Scott Ferguson, CEO of WTCA. “On behalf of the WTCA, I’d like to extend our thanks to all of the participants, our terrific partners in China and the organizers of this fantastic event for making it a success.”
