EVENT BACKGROUND

The year of 2018 marked the 40th anniversary of China’s “open door” policy that set in motion the economic transformation and globalization strategy of the past years.

In 2014, China became the world’s second largest foreign direct investment source and the world’s largest economy on a purchasing power parity basis. The country is now the world’s largest manufacturer, exporter and holder of foreign exchange reserves.

These factors made way for the implementation of the Belt and Road Initiative (一带一路), a trillion-dollars megaproject affecting 65 countries, 31% of the global GDP, and 62% of the world’s population, aiming at connecting Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa through trade, investment and infrastructure.

ABOUT THE FORUM

境外投资 INVEST IN is inviting foreign governments, investment promotion agencies and free zone authorities to take part in the 境外投资 INVEST IN Europe Forum on March 27th & 28th in Shanghai, attended by over 150 senior executives in charge of European outbound investment decisions from China’s most active state-owned enterprises and private companies.

The conference provides a premium platform for business development, information exchange and a much-needed resource for Chinese business leaders looking to expand their operations in Europe. The format of the conference will highlight the current challenges and opportunities in two main European regions: Western Europe countries and Central & Eastern European countries.

  • Alain Graf

    Former Head of Swiss Business Hub China at Embassy of Switzerland

    The Swiss Business Hub China has worked with INVEST IN for over four years now. They remain to be an effective channel to reach prequalified Chinese executives whose companies meet the annual revenue requirements and profile that Switzerland hopes to attract. The level of collaboration with INVEST IN has expanded and improved due to their ability to deliver great results. Our pipeline of Chinese companies considering Switzerland has significantly increased due to our collaboration with INVEST IN.

  • Angela He

    Chief Representative Shanghai at RoH & ILS International Legal Services

    As sponsors of the "Invest In: Germany, Outbound Investment Forum" produced by Invest In, we found this was a good channel to communicate with the Chinese Government (MOFCOM) and some famous Chinese companies such as SANY CO., LTD which invested one hundred million euros in Germany in 2009. RoH was also successfully presented in this conference. We felt this was a very good quality conference in China that met our marketing needs.

  • Khalid Al Marzooqi

    Senior Manager Asia Pacific Region at Jebel Ali Free Zone Authority

    We have received confirmed business by working with INVEST IN. Our requirements have been clearly measured and gauged during project discussion. We’ve also seen a strong execution from INVEST IN to make the event happen.
