The 2019 China International Fair for Investment and Trade (CIFIT) will take place in Xiamen, East China’s Fujian province, from Sept 8 to 9.

According to a News Conference held in Shanghai recently, from this year in a bid to promote investment and cooperation, a special pavilion for investment promotion agencies of countries involved in the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) will be set up to promote their investment environment and projects.

Meanwhile, the organising committee of CIFIT will cooperate with China Institute of Communications to demonstrate the achievements of BRI countries in 5G equipment, communication network equipment, information security and other aspects.
