Macao’s annual international trade and economic event – The 16th Macao International Trade and Investment Fair – will be held at The Venetian Macao-Resort-Hotel from 20 to 23 October 2011.
Macao International Trade and Investment Fair is currently the only exhibition event in Macao accredited by The Global Association of the Exhibition Industry (UFI). Last year, 318 trade and economic delegations from more than 60 countries and regions participated in MIF. Serving as a regional co-operation platform for Macao by maintaining close ties with the Chinese Mainland, particularly the Pan-Pearl River Delta Region, Portuguese-speaking countries, the European Union and the rest of the world, MIF aims to promote interactive trade and investment activities, in order to foster the integration of funds, resources, markets and technologies and taking further steps to advance entrepreneurial co-operation in numerous areas, through the display of trade and investment opportunities, forums and conferences, business matching, and buyers meetings.
This year, MIF will maintain the theme: “Co-operation – Key to Business Opportunities”. Taking advantage of Macao’s multi-cultural characteristics and her role as a regional business service platform, MIF will further promote trade and economic co-operation for the enterprises in Macao and the Mainland and their counterparts in the Portuguese-speaking countries, with the aim of developing Macao into a platform for trade and economic co-operation as well as cultural exchanges between China and the Portuguese-speaking countries.
