Mr Li Gang, President of China Council for the Promotion of International Trade Sichuan Council describes the collaboration between his organisation and CAPAS organisers as mutually beneficial. He said, “Sichuan province has experienced increased manufacturing growth in recent years, especially in the automotive sector. CAPAS is becoming a well-known event in this industry and we think this is an opportune time and location to promote the Sichuan province’s strengths. Also, Messe Frankfurt is a world-renowned global trade fair organisation and the exhibitions the company organises are high-standard and esteemed events. We thus hope to attract the attendance of many professional industry players and bring more investment into the region by holding the conference at CAPAS.”
