More than 1,300 participants from government and industry are expected to take part in the 13th International Infrastructure Investment and Construction Forum (IIICF) which will be held tomorrow and on Thursday at the Venetian Macao in Cotai.

The forum, which will be held both online and offline, is co-organised by the China International Contractors Association and the Macao Trade and Investment Promotion Institute (IPIM).

According to IPIM, the forum is themed Co-building Infrastructure of High Standard, Sustainability and Benefit to People’s Livelihoods, with the aim of promoting connectivity and cooperation within the international infrastructure industry.

The participants include leaders and executives from government departments, representatives from 20 financial institutions, more than 70 of the world’s top 250 international contractors and more than 600 enterprises in the infrastructure industry from different regions of the world. Enterprises will be able to showcase their projects or services, and match with potential partners for business meetings.

Emphasising that the scale of this year’s IIICF sees an approximate 20 per cent increase compared to last year, China International Contractors Association Chairman Fang Qiuchen announced the upcoming release of The Belt and Road Infrastructure Development Index 2022 and The Belt and Road Infrastructure Development Index Report 2022, which will provide scientific reference data and guidance on trends in the field of international infrastructure cooperation, as well as new trends and characteristics in the infrastructure industry around the world.

IPIM Acting President Vincent U said that this year’s IIICF will feature more Macao elements to strengthen synergy between MICE events and Macao’s economic and trade sectors, with activities including collaboration with the local MICE industry.

U also noted that parallel forums on Building Macao into a Green and Smart City, and focusing on the development of SMEs in Macao, mainland China and Portuguese-speaking countries will be held during IIICF, The Macau Post Daily reported.
