    Announced one year earlier by the Chinese President Xi Jinping at the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation, the first China International Import Expo (CIIE) took place in Shanghai between November 5-10, 2018.

    It was a common initiative of the ministry of Commerce of the People’s Republic of China and Shanghai Municipal People’s Government with a support from international organizations including: WTO, UN Industrial Development Organization. The organizers were China International Import Expo Bureau and the National Exhibition and Convention Center. The Expo was visited by numerous government delegations. Among Polish delegation’s members, headed by Minister at the Chancellery of the Prime Minister Mr. Marek Suski, were: Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Mr. Jan Krzysztof Ardanowski, Deputy Minister of Entrepreneurship and Technology Mr. Tadeusz Kościński, President of Polish Investment & Trade Agency (PAIH) Mr. Tomasz Pisula, Chief Veterinary Officer Mr. Paweł Niemczuk.

     

    CIIE covered three areas: business exhibitions, country pavilions for trade and investment, and the Hongqiao International Economic and Trade Forum. It is widely expected that CIIE will provide an open platform for cooperation where countries from around the world exhibit their achievements, and that it will lead to a new level of China’s opening up to international markets. Moreover, It should be emphasized that the showcases featured products from more than 86 countries and more than 172 regions from five continents. The representatives from more than 3,500 companies hold discussions and seek further development directions with over 400,00 purchasers from China and overseas. Thus, is it believed that the CIIE helped advance economic globalization.

     

    The Polish national pavilion was one of the largest among EU countries. Our country was represented by over 86 companies. During the ceremonial opening of it, the head of the Polish delegation, Minister Marek Suski encouraged Chinese entrepreneurs to continue cooperation with Polish companies numerously represented during CIIE. He stressed that Poland's export possibilities are far from being used by Chinese consumers.

     

    During CIIE, several multi-billion contacts were made, among them the largest trade agreement was signed between of KGHM Polska Miedź and China Minmetals Corporation.

     

    The next edition of CIIE is planned in Shanghai for the first half of November 2019.
