2020服贸会 | 线下线上“齐开工” 爱尔兰展商借服贸会拓市场

新华社北京9月6日电(记者陈恃雷 张琪)6日,在此间举行的2020年中国国际服务贸易交易会(服贸会)上,绿色装饰的爱尔兰展台前,不少参观者驻足品尝爱尔兰“国酒”威士忌。

作为新冠疫情发生以来中国在线下举办的第一场重大国际经贸活动,2020年服贸会以线上线下相结合的方式举行。据爱尔兰大使馆经济合作官员林智介绍,此次爱尔兰共有5家企业线下参展,还有7家企业通过线上方式参展。

在爱尔兰首都都柏林,一些通过线上方式参展的爱尔兰企业也告诉新华社记者,在全球经济被新冠疫情阴云笼罩的情形下,本次服贸会为他们带来更多商机。

智线公司是一家专门从事工业自动化软件设计开发的爱尔兰初创企业。在服贸会开幕当天,该公司首席执行官帕特里克·莱昂纳德在其办公室向记者展示了他们的云展台。

莱昂纳德说,中国市场巨大,对科技发展非常重视,有很多在建大项目。服贸会为智线开拓中国市场提供了极好的平台,相信公司产品在中国一定有“用武之地”。

爱尔兰中国科学技术交流协会是一家在爱尔兰注册的非营利机构,该协会是本次服贸会在爱尔兰的指定组展机构,也是线上参展商。协会副主席芬巴尔·克利里说,国际服务贸易已成为爱尔兰最大的行业之一,服贸会将进一步促进爱中两国经贸发展,希望参加服贸会的爱尔兰企业取得丰硕成果。

爱尔兰科克郡政府也是本次服贸会的线上参展商。科克郡政府经济发展和旅游部门官员莎伦·科科伦4日在视频致辞中表示,科克郡政府参加此次服贸会主要是向中国推荐爱尔兰旅游市场,特别是科克郡旅游市场。

据爱尔兰旅游局网站信息,该局去年宣布将增加其在中国市场的宣介投入,以使到访爱尔兰的中国游客数量到2025年提高到20万。

Helping to make China the number one market for Irish exporters

The largest ever trade mission from Ireland to China is being aided by organisations set up to promote links between the two countries

Irish Times: 31.10.2018 – View Website

Wen Chen is a chairman of ICSATA which, he says, is a “non-profit organisation endorsed and supported by the Irish and Chinese Governments, primarily to build an international platform for scientific and technological co-operation and exchanges so as to promote the overall collaboration between the two countries in the area of technology, collaboration between the two countries in the area of technology, external trade, educational and cultural links and talent exchange.

“We also  assist both the Chinese and Irish governments to promote the bilateral relationship at all levels – local and national,” he says. “We also work to promote international relations at all levels – local and national.”

The organisation’s first task was to assist in the visit to Ireland by a delegation from China’s southern province of Guangdong in June 2017. During the four-day visit, which was led by Hu Chunhua, member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and secretary of the Guangdong Provincial CPC Committee, a business roundtable meeting was held in which more than 120 Guangdong and Irish entrepreneurs participated.

“Our top priority in 2018 is to promote CIIE,” Chen says. “This is the first event of its kind ever and the largest ever expo of any kind for China. Some 2,800 companies from around the world will exhibit at this event and we expect 150,000 purchasers from China and elsewhere to visit during the six days. Ireland will be represented in a number of critical sectors including food, technology, education, e-commerce, baby products and intelligent equipment.”

The significance of the event is confirmed by the scale of the Irish participation. “This is the largest trade mission ever from Ireland to China with 27 Irish companies and organisations attending. Ireland was one of the first European countries to confirm its participation.”

This happened in May during a food industry trade delegation to China and Hong Kong led by Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Michael Creed. During the visit, Ireland was formally invited by the Chinese government to have a presence at CIIE and a memorandum of understanding (MOU) confirming acceptance was signed by Bord Bia chief executive Tara McCarthy.

Commenting after the MOU was signed, Creed said: “It is a great honour for Ireland to be invited by the Chinese authorities to participate in this November’s event in Shanghai. An event such as this, which is being promoted by the Chinese government, offers the ideal opportunity for Irish food exporters to do business and enhance relationships.”

“It is not just a commercial event,” Chen adds. “It is also very important politically. President Xi Jinping will open it himself. It offers an excellent opportunity for Irish SMEs to meet buyers and get into the Chinese market. ICSTA will be working hard to ensure that Irish companies have a successful and smooth experience at the Expo. We will help arrange meetings for Irish companies to discuss business opportunities with Chinese buyers.”
