CHINA’S progress and achievements in advanced manufacturing will be displayed at the 18th China International Industry Fair, which will also serve as a platform to integrate investment and business among global manufacturers, the Shanghai city government said yesterday.
To be held from November 1 to 5 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai, the fair will show domestic industrial achievements made in equipment manufacturing, smart manufacturing, information and aerospace research. It will also display developments in robots and industrial automation.
Russia, which is the country of honor at this year’s fair, will showcase its advanced industrial software.
Of the 2,308 exhibitors, 30.2 percent are from abroad, including industrial giants such as Germany’s Siemens and Bosch, and US-based information technology provider Intel.
A report on foreign investment in Shanghai’s manufacturing industry will be released on November 2 at the investment promotion conference where a “collaborative contract signing between foreign and local manufacturers can be expected,” said Chen Mingbo, director of the Shanghai Commission of Economy and Information Technology.
