Rashed Matar Alqemzi
Consul General of the UAE
CIIE is very important for the UAE, and we would like to be present at the event. Fifty companies from the UAE will participate. Our Minister of Economy will be the head of the delegation.
This expo represents an important measure that China has taken to further open up its market to the world, and it will increase imports for the country.
China and the UAE have complementary economic and trade cooperation. The UAE has seen economic growth through its exports to China in recent years. If China increases imports from the UAE, it will help us get more involved in China’s Belt and Road initiative and share China’s rapid growth.
We hope the CIIE could dazzle the outside world with the allure of China’s domestic market and its stated intent to be welcoming of foreign goods and services.
