In 2013, Chinese President Xi Jinping set out the strategy of rebuilding the Silk Road Economic Belt and a 21stCentury Maritime Silk Road known as the "The Belt and Road" initiative. The proposal caught the interest of the global community, and quickly gained the support of nations along the route.
China's Belt and Road initiative is a comprehensive framework for organizing multinational economic development and trade, which has inspired the creation of China Trade Week (CTW).
In 2013, China Trade Week had its first successful event in the UAE. This was followed by the first African event in Kenya which had an even bigger response. After having positive feedback, great outcomes and prosperous events, China Trade Week decided to expand its scope to bring together the local business community and high-end manufacturers from China to develop a strong and beneficial trade relations. China Trade Week is now hosted in Ghana, South Africa, Iran, Ethiopia, the UAE, Kenya and Morocco, a total of 7 events this year with the intention of adding more countries every year.
With the government and industry support, the organizers of China Trade Week Morocco 2017 spent weeks on the road in China, meeting companies from major provinces such as Jiangsu, Sichuan, Guangdong, Zhejiang, Beijing and Shanghai to ensure that the best Chinese manufacturers and industry will be presented at the event.
Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SME) can enjoy full support from China Chamber of Commerce, which means enterprises attending the event can apply for overseas exhibition subsidy from the government if they meet the requirements.
China Trade Week Morocco 2017 is a 3-day event being held from 20th-22nd December 2017 at the Office of Fairs and Expositions of Casablanca (OFEC). This event brings together host buyers & features professionals from China across many industries.
