2018 China Innovation and entrepreneurship Fair is About to Launch
GUANGZHOU, China, May 22, 2018
New momentum of innovation leads to new transcendence. On 22-24 June, 2018 China Innovation and entrepreneurship Fair (hereinafter referred to as CIEF) will be officially held in Guangzhou, lending an impetus to build a modern socialist country in all aspects.
CIEF, the No. 1 whole-chain platform for the transaction and transformation of innovation achievements, will wholeheartedly support independent innovation in China’s core technologies and breakthroughs in the key technologies, and provide an exchange platform for innovation teams for good. The core technologies are the backbone of a nation, while technological innovation is at the core of national development as a whole. CIEF is a vital practice of Guangzhou to carry out the innovation-driven development strategies, and help pioneer the national independent innovation demonstration area in the Pearl Delta. Further, it is an important move to optimize the innovation and entrepreneurship environment, and build a national innovation center for the science and technology industry and an international hub for technological innovation.
Guangzhou is striving to be the forefront of technological innovation and industrial development through the breakthroughs in the core technologies and the convergence of innovative resources around the world.
The national trade fair gets the power of momentum
One year ago, CIEF, this state-approved country-level trade fair, was officially settled in Guangzhou and becomes a window for the world to see Guangzhou’s vitality in innovation and entrepreneurship and the prosperity of China’s new economy. CIEF 2017 exhibited over 1300 achievements with technological innovation and has facilitated the intent of cooperation for 160 projects throughout the year, 63 projects among which have been completed with the dealing price as high as 6285.84 million Yuan.
On the strength of the experience accumulated from the past two fairs, CIEF 2018 is set to launch again. It is reported that CIEF 2018, themed with “New Momentum of Innovation Leads to New Transcendence”, is sponsored by the China Association for Science and Technology, the National Development and Reform Commission, the Chinese Academy of Engineering, the Central Committee of Jiusan Society, the People’s Government of Guangdong Province and the People’s Government of Guangzhou. By taking unique advantages of each sponsor in terms of innovation and entrepreneurship, Guangzhou gives full play to its roles of a “Millennium city of Commerce”, “the Engine of Innovation” and the hub of international technological innovation. Additionally, this market-oriented fair, featuring all-round services, aims to promote effective interaction between the technology market and the capital market, preciously balance the technologies supply with the industrial demands, and facilitate the smooth transformation of technological achievements for industrial application by means of transactions, exhibition and the transformation of achievements.
CIEF 2018 is planned to cover an area of 20,000 m2 with about 20 innovation and entrepreneurship exhibition areas for over 1,000 products and projects. At that time, valuable resources are accessible, such as innovation and entrepreneurship projects, technologies, capital, talents and information from home and abroad like the United States, Germany, Korea, Finland, Norway and Israel, will meet in Guangzhou. During CIEF 2018, these elements of innovation and entrepreneurship could be efficiently blending under the context of globalization, while new technologies and new industry could settle down and begin to grow. We hope that this CIEF would be the “Main Venue” to connect the world and adsorb global innovation resources, a window for China to display herself and an important platform for different countries to strengthen world-wide cooperation.
