ICEIC to kick off in Xiamen
The 2023 China (Xiamen) International Cross-border E-commerce Expo (ICEIC) is scheduled to take place from June 15 to 17 at the Xiamen International Conference and Exhibition Center.
Xiamen, which was appointed as one of the first 10 cross-border e-commerce B2B (business to business) export supervision pilot cities, possesses unparalleled advantages in the industry. The ICEIC, a distinguished event in the domestic e-commerce sphere, masterfully coalesces diverse authoritative platforms and service providers through its official guidance and organizational finesse.

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.
