Jointly organised by the China International Contractors Association and the Macao Trade and Investment Promotion Institute, the 10th International Infrastructure Investment and Construction Forum (IIICF) will be held in Macao from May 30 to 31, under the theme “Promoting Quality and Sustainable Development of International Infrastructure”.
Supported by the Central Government, the IIICF has been improving its scale, level of professionalism and participation since it started being stage in Macao. It has not only provided an exchange platform for the international infrastructure sector, it has also generated a synergy with Macao’s Commercial and Trade Co-operation Service Platform between China and Portuguese-speaking Countries, allowing Macao to give full play to its institutional, geographic and cultural strengths, while enhancing the city’s competitiveness and its participation in infrastructure collaboration with “Belt and Road” countries and regions.
This edition celebrates the first 10years of the IIICF. The Belt and Road Infrastructure Development Index (2019) and the Annual Report on the Belt and Road Construction (2019) will be released during the event, and a chapter of Macao and elements related to Mainland China enterprises participating in infrastructure development in Portuguese-speaking countries have been added into the reports, further recognising Macao’s role as a platform. The inauguration ceremony of IIICF supervision committee and Mainland China-Macao Belt and Road Business and Professional Services Council will be also staged. Various thematic forums, parallel forums and penal sessions will be held, including “Dialogue with Senior Management from MDBs: Investment in Quality and Sustainable Infrastructure”, “International Chambers of Commerce Presidents Forum – Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and Quality and Sustainable Infrastructure Investment”, “Keynote Forum: Pursuing for Quality and Sustainable Infrastructure - from Goals to Practice”, “Parallel Forum: From the Belt and Road to Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area: Opportunities and Challenges of Infrastructure Connectivity”, “Parallel Forum: From the Belt and Road to Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area: Opportunities and Challenges of Infrastructure Connectivity”, “Parallel Forum: Conference of Central Bankers, Financial Supervisors and Financiers from China and Portuguese-speaking Countries”, “Parallel Forum: Maximizing the Role of Finance in Promoting Practical Cooperation between China and Portuguese-Speaking Countries- Focusing on Project Investment and Financing, Sharing Successful Experience and Exploring Cooperation Mode”.
