Mexico will participate as co-host at the 11th China International Small and Medium Enterprises Fair (CISMEF, for its acronym in English), to be held from 11 to 14 October in the city of Guangzhou.

CISMEF is the trade event with the largest international presence in China and aims to promote the internationalization of SMEs, constituting an ideal platform for the exhibition of Mexican products and services.

The 11th edition of CISMEF will have a total exhibition area of 100,000 m2, more than 5,000 stands and exhibitors from various Chinese provinces; also will include countries like Indonesia, Taiwan, Japan and South Korea, among others.

Mexico will feature more than 170 small and medium enterprises (SMEs), in an area of 8,000 m2. There will be present the representatives from various organisms of the Government of the Republic such as ProMéxico, IMPI, BANCOMEXT ASERCA, SAGARPA, SENASICA and the Tourism Promotion Council of Mexico (CPTM, by its initials in Spanish) and those from state governments as Guanajuato, Morelos, Querétaro, Veracruz, State of Mexico, Nuevo León, Yucatán and Zacatecas, as well as business chambers such as CANIETI COMCE, MEXCHAM and the Cultural and Trade Council Mexico-China.

This event is the major effort that the Government of the Republic has made to obtain the participation of the Mexican SMEs in an international event, because it is the group with more companies that Mexico has led to China.

The National Institute of Entrepreneur (INADEM), headed by its President, Jacob Enrique Rocha, supports the Mexican SMEs attending the CISMEF where a bridge between the two countries opens itself so these Mexican SMEs inroads into the Chinese market and know the business opportunities of that country.

The Mexican SMEs will have the opportunity to conduct business meetings with Chinese companies, attending conferences and seminars, and visiting technology parks and distribution centers, among other activities.

This Fair will promote Mexico as a supplier of industrial and international agribusiness products as well as its dynamic economy with opportunities of investment.

The agenda of official events involving the Chair of INADEM includes meetings with officials from the Guangzhou Provincial Government and from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, with the aim of strengthening the Mexican entrepreneurial ecosystem, closing ties with Chinese strategic governmental sectors to position the SMEs into the Asian entrepreneurial ecosystem.
