Event boosts cultural exchange and expands influence

An event composed of the award ceremony for the image solicitation campaign of the China International Import Expo and the launch of the new book My CIIE Stories was held at the media center of the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai) on Nov 9.

Officials from the Ministry of Commerce, departments of the Shanghai Municipal Government, China International Import Expo Bureau, National Exhibition and Convention Center, Shanghai Committee of Chinese Communist Youth League, Shanghai United Media Group, Jiefang Daily and Xinmin Evening News attended the event.

During the event, the media channel for the image solicitation campaign of the fifth CIIE was launched, and the first, second and third prizes of the My CIIE Stories campaign were given out. Since the first CIIE, media professionals and members of the public have helped promote the CIIE's influence through their images of the expo's wonderful moments. Some of the excellent works have been displayed at the fifth CIIE's media center.

On June 1, the global solicitation activity for My CIIE Stories, a campaign by the CIIE Bureau and NECC, kicked off.

The My CIIE Stories campaign is centered on four themes: Grand Strategy, Big Market, Prominent Platform and Great Opportunity.

After the solicitation notice was released, the organizers received personal CIIE stories containing beautiful memories every day.

This campaign has since attracted many stories from Chinese and foreign participants.

The storytellers include participants in the CIIE's Business Exhibition, Hongqiao International Economic Forum, Country Exhibition, and people-to-people and cultural exchanges.

The organizers also took into account the stories of young students as well as people who have been engaged in behind-the-scenes work.

It is reported that the image collection campaign of the fourth CIIE received approximately 40,000 photos and 1,800 short videos. After a professional review, 49 works were appraised and selected as the outstanding awards. The book My CIIE Story is a compilation of 77 stories.

The fifth CIIE is drawing to a conclusion, but excellent CIIE stories will never end. The image collection of the fifth CIIE will last until Nov 30. The event welcomes everyone to continue to use videos and words to document open, collaborative "CIIE moments" as well as win-win "CIIE stories".

China's opening-up in My CIIE Stories

Inside the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai, the main venue for the annual CIIE, advanced products and cutting-edge technologies get to meet Chinese buyers. This event has not only boosted the consumption upgrade for the Chinese markets and provided an innovative "experimental field" for global technologies that enables different countries to inspire and learn from each other, but also brought techniques and foreign capital to China and enhanced its technological independence. All of these are necessary requirements for smooth domestic circulation and the development of dual circulation.

Over the past five years, concerted efforts have been made to ensure the continued success of the CIIE and promote its spillover effects.

The CIIE has grown in stature and influence over the past five years.

Its guiding philosophy of sharing China's development dividends with the world will enhance confidence in world economic recovery and add vitality to the building of a community with a shared future for mankind.
