Xiamen showcases trade in services strength at CIFTIS
Eight businesses and institutions from Xiamen joined forces to establish a participating delegation for the 2022 China International Fair for Trade in Services, or CIFTIS, which began on August 31 in Beijing. This delegation was organized by the Xiamen municipal bureau of commerce.
The Xiamen delegation includes members of renowned companies, universities, medical institutions and industrial parks, and is expected to showcase Xiamen's strength in trade in the services sector at CIFTIS.
For example, Huaqiao University, a national language service export base, plans to showcase the achievements of language service exports through an intelligent international Chinese education robot at the CIFTIS.
Xiamen Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, a national Chinese medicine service export base, plans to display and promote its portable medicinal tea bags at the event to popularize the knowledge of chronic disease treatment.
Furthermore, Xiamen International Book Company plans to exhibit its one-stop platform for international trade of book copyrights at the event.
This year's CIFTIS has already attracted over 65 countries and international organizations, and over 1,400 companies to attend the offline exhibition, which is serving as a platform to discuss hot issues in trade in services.

Xiamen is one of the most economically competitive cities in China and was one of the first Special Economic Zones on the Chinese mainland. As a vice-provincial city independently listed on the State development plan, it has provincial-level authority in economic administration and local legislative power. In 2010, the Xiamen SEZ was expanded to cover the entire municipality. Today, Xiamen is a modern and international port city.
