23rd Macao International Trade and Investment Fair to be held mid-October03 Oct 2018

The 23rd Macao International Trade and Investment Fair (MIF) will be held at The Venetian Macao from 18th to 20th October. Featuring once again the theme 'Co-operation - Key to Business Opportunities', this year's MIF has invited Mozambique and Fujian Province to be the Partner Country and Partner Province, giving full play to Macao's advantages as the Commercial and Trade Co-operation Service Platform between China and Portuguese-speaking countries.

Forums, conferences and workshops will be organised to promote regional economic and trade exchanges and co-operation in diversified ways, while assisting participating enterprises to keep in step with the development of the 'Belt and Road' Initiative, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Bay Area and China-PSCs platforms. The 2018 Portuguese-speaking Countries Product and Services Exhibition (Macao) - 2018 PLPEX - will continue to be held concurrently with the MIF.

In line with the policies of the State and the Macao SAR Government, the Fair will set up the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Bay Area Business Zone, a smart exhibition area, a youth entrepreneurship exhibition area, a featured finance exhibition area and an innovation experience zone. Meanwhile, the '8th Asian Trade Promotion Forum (ATPF) Joint Exhibition' will be staged in Macao at the MIF for the first time to provide an exchange platform for domestic and overseas companies and Asian trade promotion institutions.

The Fair continues to provide participating enterprises with a series of free business matching and promotion services covering procurement, negotiation, brand agency, and so forth. Simultaneously, the 'Online Business Matching Service Platform' will be open to maximise the efficacy of business matching and help attendees expand their markets. Meanwhile, the Fair will offer free Wi-Fi at the venue and electronic payment in the Macao SME Exhibition Area so that participants can enjoy more diversified and convenient payment methods.

At the 22nd MIF in 2017 more than 1500 exhibition booths attracted participants from over 50 countries and regions. Last year was the first time that the MIF was held concurrently with PLPEX. A total of 67 contracts were signed during the three-day exhibition, while on-site purchasers in the business matching area participated in more than 389 business appointments with remarkable results.
