Xiamen, a beautiful city of Fujian province that located at the southeast coast of the Chinese mainland, is inviting Hong Kong investors to participate in the 2015 China International Fair for Investment Trade (CIFIT) this September.

Ni Chao, deputy mayor of Xiamen, told a promotional symposium in Admiralty on Thursday, that the 2015 CIFIT in Xiamen, a four-day event starting from Sept 8, is one of the largest and most influential investment platforms in the world, and there will be a great number of business opportunities for Hong Kong investors.

Ni said that Fujian is in the core area of the "21st Century Maritime Silk Road" initiative, and Xiamen is a strategically important city to facilitate the "One Belt, One Road" initiative.

Ni noted that the Administration of Xiamen Area of China (Fujian) Pilot Free Trade Zone was officially established on April 21 this year, and there will be 16 reform initiatives in the pilot zone.

"We will accelerate in attracting overseas investments in Xiamen, and we will implement the pilot projects as soon as possible so that all investors can share our fruits from the reform of our pilot zone," she said.

Ni stressed there will be a special exhibition for cross-border e-commerce companies during the CIFIT.Xiamen, and there will be various thematic forums for e-commerce business owners to discuss about the trend in the industry. Ni said that so far, government organizations and enterprises from over 40 countries and regions, including the US, Russia, Australia, New Zealand, Spain and Japan, have signed up to participate in the CIFIT.Xiamen exhibition.

"We expect to attract over 50,000 investors from more than 110 economies to attend CIFIT.Xiamen," she added.

Ni said that more than 30,000 investment projects will be presented to investors during CIFIT.Xiamen, and she is confident that many of these projects will be very attractive to Hong Kong investors.

Yang Yi, deputy director-general of Economic Affairs Department of the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in Hong Kong, told the promotional symposium that Xiamen is one the first cities on the mainland to reform and open up.

"Backed by its unique geographical advantages, Xiamen is a regional economic center for both sides of the strait," said Yang, adding that Xiamen is also a beautiful tourism city attracting travelers from all over the world.
