Last Friday (July 2nd), a press conference held in Beijing announced that the 12th International Infrastructure Investment and Construction Forum (IIICF) will be held in Macao on July 22-23. The Vice President of the Pakistani Senate, Mirzamumad Afridi, and the Pakistani envoy to China confirmed their attendance at the forum.
Fang Qiuchen, Chairmen of China International Contractors Association (CICA), introduced that 12th IIICF themed “Joining Hands to Promote New Development of International Infrastructure Cooperation”, will focus on the opportunities and challenges facing international infrastructure cooperation in the post-epidemic era. More than 30 activities were arranged around the theme, which covered not only common focal points of the industry, but also the new trends and new formats of industry development.
Yu Xiaohong, vice president of CICA, said that although the epidemic has brought severe tests to the world economy and international trade, the huge demand for international infrastructure cooperation will not be decreased. Looking ahead to the post-epidemic era, in the context of carbon neutrality, there will be greater business opportunities in new energy infrastructure, public health infrastructure, smart buildings and new infrastructure. Countries along BRI, including Pakistan, have huge market development potential.
Meanwhile, the One Belt And One Road National Infrastructure Development Index (2021) will be published at the forum.
