China plans to further a new round of high-level opening-up and prove its belief in shared prosperity via the China International Import Expo (CIIE) a few months away, Minister of Commerce Zhong Shan said on Sunday, noting preparations are underway. 

The event reaffirms China’s unequivocal commitment to inclusive globalization in the wake of the challenged multilateral trading system and the growing investment protectionism, Zhong said. 

Showcases China’s confidence and determination of opening up, CIIE offers an open platform for international cooperation, where 60 countries have signed up to present their national images, and enterprises from over 120 countries and regions will exhibit their commodities and services, Zhong said. 

During the expo, a Hongqiao International Trade Forum will be held with an estimated 4,500 participants. According to Zhong, politicians, leaders of international organizations, well-known entrepreneurs and think tanks from the industrial and academic sectors are expected to deliver speeches.
