Thousands of exhibitors around the world have agreed to the China International Import Expo, and it is the Chinese market that is building a new development pattern.
Practicing the future agreement with CIIE, exhibitors will “leave” the brightest new products and deepest cooperation to the CIIE, turning the CIIE into a stage for companies to show new products, technology and cooperation globally.

So far, it will get better and better, and it will definitely get better and better. (Reporter: Ji Ming, Qi Zhongxi, Yao Yujie, Zhou Rui, Shanghai reporter, participating reporter: Wang Moling)
“Benefits at the meeting” deep integration of global trade
The CIIE is becoming an important window for the world economy to participate in the new development pattern of China’s “dual cycle”.
At the CIIE, the most intuitive thing is market integration. The two markets at home and abroad are deeply integrated, global commodities are converging in China, and more and more global goods are accelerating into the shopping carts of Chinese consumers, and the excellent “Made in China” has also obtained a larger display platform. At the same time, both online and offline markets are highly integrated here. More and more CIIE exhibits are signed to enter the e-commerce platform. Consumers can buy the “Same model of CIIE” online as soon as possible, superimposed on the “Double 11” effect, and “Same model of CIIE” has changed in seconds. Double 11 hits”. This year’s CIIE also incorporates the new format of e-commerce live broadcast for the first time. Consumers can “go to the Expo in the cloud” and overseas brands will first try “live streaming with goods”. Exhibitors and purchasers who cannot be present due to the pandemic can use the online Participate in the above way. China’s strong domestic demand and the vigorous vitality of China’s e-commerce are once again blooming on the world economic stage.
The CIIE has increasingly become a booth for forward-looking technology integration. Industrial interconnection, intelligent manufacturing, and high-end equipment u2026u2026 are digital products and solutions that subvert imagination, showing new trends in industrial upgrading and consumption upgrading. There are not only visible products, but also “invisible” services: in the service trade exhibition area opened for the first time in this year’s CIIE, a variety of high-end and smart hotel services, logistics services, community services, etc. satisfy people’s expectations for a better life. And various innovative financial services have become the link and bridge to build a new domestic and international “dual cycle” development pattern.
At the CIIE, you can also see the integration of global culture. Every exhibit at the CIIE is a footnote to the cultural diversity of the world, condensing the wisdom of the people of the world. While trading goods and services, the CIIE is constantly exchanging culture and ideas. 2020 International Industrial Internet Innovation and Development Forum, 2020 Industrial Investment and International Financial Cooperation Forum u2026u2026 From the perspective of the industry, economic summits and cultural feasts complement each other, which will definitely promote the further opening, exchange and integration of the global economy, and promote China and the world to join hands in economic recovery Develop and share the future.
The CIIE is even more a fusion of the world trading system. At the CIIE, the dual structure system and the three-pole trade system were weakened, and a community with a shared future for mankind that “work together in the same boat to meet challenges, open cooperation and share the future” became a consensus. Ethiopia’s coffee, Gambia’s national costumes, South Sudan’s handicrafts, Tanzania’s sapphire u2026u2026 44 least developed countries in the world, more than 30 have been invited to participate in the CIIE, can share the same Chinese market with other countries opportunity. The CIIE is becoming an important public platform for jointly safeguarding multilateralism.
Under the great changes unseen in a century, how to better grasp the development trend of international trade and industry, better carry out international economic and trade cooperation, maintain a free, stable and fair world economic order, and promote the sustainable development of global trade and economy is a problem. Important topics of widespread concern. As an important international public product, the CIIE continues to explore new international cooperation under the new pattern of international trade, and the “spillover effect” is further amplified. Under the gloom of the global Coronavirus pandemic, the CIIE will bring opportunities for the world economy to recover. It will also profoundly affect the world trade pattern.
As the world’s first national-level exhibition with the theme of imports, the CIIE is an important platform for China to expand and open up in the new era, as well as an important platform to promote the development of domestic and international “dual cycles” and promote global economic recovery and development. It is foreseeable that the CIIE will further enhance the ability and energy level to allocate global resources, and will also witness China’s strides from a major trading country to a powerful trading country, becoming an important engine of economic globalization and a stabilizer of international trade.
