The global import-themed event

CIIE is a brand new national import & export expo. The name is an abbreviation that stands for the China International Import Expo, which has been taking place once a year. The show will run for six days in total in November in Shanghai, and it will involve the broader trade industry. China International Import Expo Bureau and Shanghai National Exhibition and Convention Center serves as organisers, with the latter also being the host of the event.
