Original Title: Acting Governor Li Xi visits 13th CIEME

Mr. Li Xi, Acting Governor of Liaoning Province, came to Shenyang International Exhibition Center (SYIEC) and visited the 13th China International Equipment Manufacturing Exposition (CIEME) on September 2nd.

There were 832 enterprises from 19 countries/regions and 22 Chinese provinces participating in this CIEME. Within the exhibition halls, advanced products brought by 14 world famous machine tool enterprises, 62 Fortune Global 500 enterprises and transnational corporations, and hundreds of domestic enterprises attracted a large number of purchasers and visitors to discuss business and have a visit.

Mr. Li Xi successively came to the exhibition areas of heavy machinery, machine tool and metal cutting equipment, national high-tech equipment, industrial design and 3D printing, visited the stands of 15 enterprises such as Shenyang Machine Tool Co., Ltd., Northern Heavy Industries Group Co., Ltd., TBEA Co., Ltd., Taiwan You Jia, Carl Zeiss AG, Yamazaki Mazak Corporation and Autodesk, and inquired in detail the general situation, product performance and exhibition of the enterprises. He said that after more than ten years of development, the degree of specialization, marketization and internationalization of CIEME had become higher and higher, and the popularity and influence of CIEME had grown increasingly. CIEME should be held not only for Shenyang and Liaoning, but also for China and the world. We should further summarize experience, provide better service for exhibitors, attract more well-known domestic and foreign enterprises to participate in exhibition, and make CIEME become a first-class international brand showing advanced equipment in China and in the world.

Subsequently, Mr. Li Xi held a talk with executives of some exhibitors from Liaoning province and listened to their comments and suggestions. Mr. Li Xi pointed out that it is the advantage for the old industrial base of Liaoning to develop equipment manufacturing industry. We should conscientiously implement all kinds of major policy initiatives set forth by the Party Central Committee and the State Council about a new round of northeast China revitalization, vigorously develop high-end equipment manufacturing industry which is a combination of strategic emerging industry and advanced manufacturing industry, and construct advanced equipment manufacturing industry base with international competitiveness.

Mr. Li Xi emphasized that in order to develop equipment manufacturing industry, Liaoning need to accelerate the implementation of strategy of driving development by innovation, deepen reform and opening up, and grow up in international competition. We should make good use of the platform of CIEME, actively "go out", and strive to develop international and domestic markets; should vigorously "bring in", and attract domestic and foreign enterprises to develop equipment manufacturing industry in Liaoning; and should also strengthen technological exchanges and cooperation, carry out mergers and acquisitions, introduce R&D teams, and speed up the promotion of independent innovation ability.

Mr. Chen Haibo, Mayor of Shenyang, attended the visit.
