Auto components India - - CONTENTS - ACI

The fourth edi­tion of the Chengdu In­ter­na­tional Trade Fair for Au­to­mo­tive Parts and Af­ter­mar­ket Ser­vices (CAPAS) will be held at the Chengdu Cen­tury City New In­ter­na­tional Ex­hi­bi­tion & Con­ven­tion Cen­ter from May 25to 27, 2017. CAPAS is one of the 10 branded shows listed in “The Re­form and De­vel­op­ment of Ex­hi­bi­tion In­dus­try in Sichuan” pro­gramme, and is jointly or­gan­ised by the China Coun­cil for the Pro­mo­tion of In­ter­na­tional Trade, Au­to­mo­tive Sub-Coun­cil (CCPIT-Auto); Messe Frank­furt (Shang­hai) Co Ltd; and China Coun­cil for the Pro­mo­tion of In­ter­na­tional Trade, Sichuan Coun­cil (CCPIT-Sichuan).

The show re­mains stead­fast in cul­ti­vat­ing the fast­grow­ing au­to­mo­bile mar­ket in South­west China and has be­come the re­gion’s lead­ing one-stop plat­form for com­merce, ex­change of ideas and in­vest­ment.

While gen­er­at­ing enor­mous eco­nomic ben­e­fits, the three or­gan­is­ers al­ways up­hold cor­po­rate cul­ture and cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity. CAPAS is not only a plat­form to drive the au­to­mo­bile in­dus­try and eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment for­ward in Sichuan and South­west China, but to work for the bet­ter­ment of the eco­nomic, cul­tural and eco­log­i­cal de­vel­op­ment of Chengdu. The ob­jec­tive is to ac­cel­er­ate the trans­for­ma­tion of Chengdu, as the heart of South­west China, into a cos­mopoli­tan city as ini­ti­ated by the “One Belt, One Road” ini­tia­tive.

As a re­sult, CCPIT-Auto, Messe Frank­furt (Shang­hai) Co Ltd and CCPIT-Sichuan or­gan­ised the ‘CAPAS Ar­bour Day’ event, which took place in Meis­han, Sichuan on March 10, 2017. The goal of the event was to pro­mote a bet­ter en­gage­ment in the so­cial econ­omy and eco­log­i­cal civil­i­sa­tion in Sichuan prov­ince.

The event gained mas­sive sup­port from govern­ment agen­cies in Sichuan Prov­ince. Govern­ment of­fi­cials, rep­re­sen­ta­tives from au­to­mo­bile as­so­ci­a­tions and en­ter­prises as well as lead­ing na­tional me­dia were in­vited to at­tend the tree plant­ing ac­tiv­ity.

Fiona Chiew, Deputy Gen­eral Man­ager of Messe Frank­furt (Shang­hai) Co Ltd said, “China con­sid­ers Chengdu a key junc­tion of the ‘One Belt, One Road’ ini­tia­tive and po­si­tions the cap­i­tal of Sichuan as the key de­vel­op­ing city. Chengdu, an eco­nomic, ed­u­ca­tional, cul­tural and fi­nan­cial cen­tre, to­gether with the whole Sichuan Prov­ince and the South­west re­gions, all play an in­stru­men­tal role in the Belt and Road Ini­tia­tive”.

Cen­tred on the sup­ply chain and the de­mand of end users, CAPAS 2017 is or­gan­is­ing 6 brand new spe­cialised zones to ex­ploit the ever-grow­ing mar­ket po­ten­tial.
