The second CIIE will still be composed of Country Pavilions, Enterprise and Business Exhibitions, and the Hongqiao International Economic and Trade Forum. The Country Pavilion Area will cover about 30,000 square meters with only exhibitions with no business transactions allowed. Relevant countries and regions will be invited to the Expo to showcase their achievements in trade and investment, including trade in goods and services, industries, investment and tourism, and featured products. The total exhibition area of the Enterprise and Business Exhibition will be extended based on exhibitors’ needs, and will consist of 5 main exhibition parts and 7 subareas themed around equipment, consumers, food, health care and services. The 2nd Hongqiao International Economic and Trade Forum will still be composed of a main forum and several parallel forums, aiming to attract more participants than the first CIIE. In terms of policy support, the same policies will be provided as the first CIIE and relevant departments are encouraged to introduce new policies in accordance with new situations and requirements.
