Macao’s largest international trade event – the 22nd Macao International Trade and Investment Fair (MIF) will take place in Macao on October 19 to 21, 2017.

Macao International Trade and Investment Fair (MIF) has been held successfully for 21 editions since 1996. MIF, the first UFI-approved event in Macao and China’s second trade fair approved by UFI in category of investment promotion, serves as one of the most celebrated annual international economic and trade events in Macao. Macao International Trade and Investment Fair (MIF) is organized by Macao Trade and Investment Promotion Institute (IPIM), and co-organized by 15 economic and trade agencies, chambers of commerce and business associations, from Macao, Mainland China and Hong Kong. With the theme of“Co-operation-Key to Business Opportunities”, MIF serves to demonstrate to the world Macao’s advantages as a World Centre of Tourism and Leisure, and as a premium business and trade co-operation service platform between China and Portuguese-speaking countries (PSCs), providing business opportunities as well as benefits under Macao’s diverse economic environment. MIF is also dedicated to introducing prospective partners to the participating exhibitors, thereby cultivating dynamic business opportunities and enabling new businesses to further develop.

The MIF 2016 (21st MIF), occupied an area of over 30,000 square metres with more than 1,600 exhibition booths, attracted the participation of delegations from over 50 countries and regions. Portugal and Beijing, the very first MIF “Partner Country” and “Partner City”, both sent high-level delegations to Macao for the occasion. Over 380 business negotiation sessions were held in the Business Matching Area, of which 110 were made through the Online Business Matching Service Platform, resulting in contract signing of more than 50 projects.

Following the successful participation at last year’s edition of the Macao International Trade and Investment Fair (21st MIF) and from the enthusiastic response to the European Pavilion at the 2017 Macao International Environmental Co-operation Forum & Exhibition (MIECF), the European Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong and the Macau European Chamber of Commerce are delighted to co-host a European Pavilion at the 22nd Macao International Trade and Investment Fair (MIF), which will be held at the Venetian Macao-Resort-Hotel from 19 to 21 October 2017.

The analysis presented in today's Country Reports shows that the economic recovery, together with the reforms carried out in many parts of Europe, has contributed to improving the labour market and social context in Europe. Unemployment is at a ten-year low and almost back to pre-crisis levels, investment is picking up and public finances continue to improve. The share of people at risk of poverty or social exclusion has decreased to pre-crisis levels. However, remaining vulnerabilities, such as the high level of public and private debt, need to be overcome to safeguard the sustainability and inclusiveness of the current economic growth.

You, as business leaders, also have choices to make in a context of uncertainty. The UK will leave the EU on 29 March 2019. That is the only certainty we have at this stage. It is therefore important that all businesses analyse their exposure to the UK and are ready to adapt their logistics, supply chains and contracts. Of course, the transition period currently under negotiation would give you more time to adapt. However, certainty about the transition will only come at the end of the process, with the ratification of the withdrawal agreement by both sides –probably early next year.
