China Hi-Tech Fair in Brussels Well Received by Investors
During the 2013 China Hi-Tech Fair that was held in Brussels Belgian Ambassador to China Michel Malherbe said that Shenzhen is the entry point to China and both cities are the ideal partners in the economic and technological cooperation. During the fair, the president for Virtual Reality Medical Institute Brenda K. Wiederhold made the effort to visit the event in hopes to find Chinese medical institutions and government agencies where she can promote the high tech products that is being developed by her company.
Widerhold is one of the 80 business executives from more than 60 Belgian companies that came to the event to discuss potential opportunities with Chinese counterparts. After several discussions Widerhold is confident on tapping the Chinese market with the assistance of the China Hi-Tech Fair. Several other Belgian firms had the same aspirations of Wiederhold and were largely impressed by the huge number of startup incubators in Shenzhen. And many of the firms are trying to find the best Chinese partners for a two way investment in similar incubators that are found in Europe.
This is the first sub venue for the China Hi-Tech Fair in Brussels. The fair was headed by Shenzhen vice Mayor Chen Biao along with the Chinese delegations that brought a variety of projects and business proposals to Brussels in hopes to attract European investors. And to their surprise a lot of their Brussels counterparts were also eager to find Chinese investors as well.
The China Hi-Tech Fair have already staged several overseas sub fairs since 2005 in countries such as Germany, Belgium, Israel, Hungary and Portugal.
