CIIE to drive auto development

Shanghai will use the fourth China International Import Expo as a great platform to further promote the development of new-energy, intelligent and connected vehicles, officials said yesterday.

With the theme of unlimited possibilities in the future and a planned area of 30,000 square meters, the fourth CIIE’s auto exhibition area will focus on displaying cutting-edge technologies and products in the global automotive industry.

The signed auto exhibition area for the upcoming CIIE has exceeded 80 percent of the planned exhibition area, with most of the world’s top 500 auto firms and leading auto parts makers taking part.

Shanghai hopes to further accelerate the development pace of the auto industry with the expo. It aims to produce 1.2 million new-energy vehicles by 2025 with an output value exceeding 350 billion yuan (US$54.2 billion).

At a press conference yesterday, Ma Fengmin, chief financial officer of the China International Import Expo Bureau, said: “The CIIE is committed to building a platform for international innovation, cooperation and exchanges to help accelerate the transformation and upgrading of the global automotive industry.”

Following three successful editions, the CIIE has become an important carrier for automakers to enhance brand value in China, broaden communication between government and enterprises, expand exchanges and cooperation in innovation and development, as well as to connect with Chinese consumers.

The fourth CIIE will continue to set up a smart mobility exhibition area to display autonomous driving, intelligent and connected vehicles, smart cockpits, vehicle-road coordination, control systems and core sensors. More than 10 auto companies have already signed for the smart mobility exhibition area.
