CIFIT showcases prospects for investment from throughout China. The event introduces national investment polices, promotes investment projects and recommends a comprehensive range of products from across corporate sector.
With rapid-expanding international scope, CIFIT is increasingly attracting the attention of a rising number of developed and developing countries, as well as numerous international economic organizations, all of which actively participate in the Fair's conferences and exhibitions. CIFIT has not only evolved into an important platform for China to attract foreign capital and for Chinese enterprises to expand overseas, but has also become a vital bridge for third country (region) to third country (region) investment.

These groups included 110 governmental organization delegations, 101 commercial association delegations, and 11 sister city delegations, as well as 9 delegations from international organizations, 149 delegations from leading global corporations (including Fortune 500 companies), and 3 other delegations from abroad. The overall stature of the Fair's overseas participants showed a notable rise over previous sessions, with 43 vice department-heads or higher government officials, as well as 730 senior leaders from MNC's and renowned companies, and 450 heads from commercial associations.
The 13th CIFIT is poised to continue to promote international trade, cooperation and investment through a wide array of expositions and exhibits, talks on investment projects, forums and consultations on government policies, and the publication of various items of news and information.
