the Venetian-Macao-Resort-Hotel from 17 to 20 October 2013.
MIF is the first exhibition in Macao accredited by the Global Associationof the Exhibition Industry (UFI). Last year, 330 trade and economic
delegations from more than 52 countries and regions participated in the Fair, engaging in 1,847 business matching sessions. Serving as a regional
co-operation platform maintaining close ties with the Mainland, the Pan-Pearl River Delta Region in particular, Portuguese-Speaking Countries,
the European Union and the rest of the world, MIF promotes trade and investment activities, fosters the integration of funds, resources,
markets and technologies and takes steps to advance entrepreneurial co-operation in numerous areas, through the display of trade and
investment opportunities, forums and conferences, business matching and buyers meetings.
The theme of this year’s MIF is “Co-operation – Key to Business Opportunities”. Taking advantage of Macao’s multi-cultural characteristics
and its role as a regional business service platform, MIF will further promote trade and economic collaboration for enterprises in Macao and the
Mainland and their counterparts in Portuguese-speaking countries, with the aim of expanding Macao’s role as a platform for trade and economic
co-operation and exchanges between China and Portuguese–Speaking Countries.
