XIAMEN, China, Sept. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Mr. Harley Seyedin, president of The American Chamber of Commerce in South China (AmCham South China), this morning joined representatives from both the Invest in the U.S.A. association and the Xiamen municipal government, to cut the ribbon of the "AmCham South China USA Pavilion" at the China International Fair for Investment and Trade (CIFIT).
Taking place at 9:50 a.m. in Hall C of the Xiamen International Conference and Exhibition Center, the event kicked off what is expected to be the busiest year yet for the Pavilion's exhibitors. This is the sixth consecutive year that CIFIT has included a U.S. Pavilion since Mr. Seyedin and former Consul General Robert Goldberg of the U.S. Consulate General in Guangzhou conceived and led the Pavilion's inaugural effort in 2008.
Expected to be the largest of any at the 18th CIFIT, the 750-square-meter USA Pavilion will this year be staffed by nearly 200 visitors from the United States looking to help Chinese companies discover partners and projects for investments in America.
In addition to establishing dialogue with potential investors for projects in the United States at the USA Pavilion, the 400-strong AmCham South China delegation will be participating in a range of other activities, including meetings with provincial-level officials from Fujian, Hunan, and the Chong Qing state-level municipality. On the evening of September 8 the delegation will host its annual CIFIT Evening Cocktail reception at Revolving Club on the 36th floor of Xiamen Top Plaza.
