Hannover/Beijing. China has been selected as the official Partner Country for CeBIT 2015. Oliver Frese, member of the Managing Board at Deutsche Messe, was joined by Dr. Gong Xiaofeng, Executive Vice Chairman of CCPITECC (the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade Electronics & Information Industry Sub-Council) in signing the partnership agreement for the IT flagship show on 7 July in Beijing, in the presence of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang.
During Chinese President Xi Jinping’s trip to Germany at the end of March, China and Germany agreed to make 2015 the year of “innovation cooperation” between the two countries. The substantial growth of the Chinese IT market and the upsurge in domestic consumption there have transformed China into a highly interesting sales and partnering market for globally active IT enterprises. At the same time, export-driven China’s Partner Country role will provide additional momentum to the current growth dynamic of the Chinese IT market.
