Seven Irish organizations and enterprises signed cooperation agreements with the China International Import Expo Bureau for this year's expo during a promotional event of the sixth CIIE in Dublin, Ireland, on local time May 29.
The event, aimed at promoting the import expo and drawing companies from Ireland to look for business opportunities in China through CIIE, was attended by over 100 representatives from Irish business associations, enterprises and media outlets.
Wang Jiabao, commercial counselor of the Chinese embassy in Ireland, said that Irish products such as beef, whiskey and dairy products, as well as services related to tourism, finance and information technology, have been well-received at the expo since the inaugural edition. He said he hoped that more Irish companies and products could enter the Chinese market via CIIE to strengthen the mutual understanding and cooperation of the two countries.
Liu Fuxue, deputy director-general of the CIIE Bureau, expressed the hope that Irish organizations and enterprises will continue to help attract more high-quality exhibitors to participate in the expo.
Liu Yupeng, chairman of the Industry and Commerce Association of Ireland, said that the association, which is a key partner of the CIIE in Ireland, has been dedicated to facilitating exhibitor and purchaser attraction and matchmaking for the expo.
The association will bring more high-end Irish brands and advanced technologies to join the sixth CIIE, he added.
Besides the promotional conference, the CIIE work group visited several organizations and companies in Ireland to have face-to-face communications.
