About COIS

  Aiming at “serving the country, prospering Hong Kong, and benefiting the world”, “China Overseas Investment Summit” is held against the context of the proposal to accelerate the implementation of the “go global” strategy under the state “12th Five-year Plan”, to implement the 36 policies to benefit Hong Kong announced by vice premier Li Keqiang on behalf of the Central People’s Government of China when visiting Hong Kong, and to actively push Hong Kong forward to shift its functions. The first China Overseas Investment Summit, held successfully in Hong Kong during November 15-16, 2011, was hosted by Hong Kong China Chamber of Commerce, fully covered by CCTV financial channel as the strategic partner, and sponsored exclusively by King Wai Holdings. The Central Government of China set great store by and fully confirmed the first summit, and Chinese vice premier Li Keqiang made an important instruction. Peng Qinghua, head of the Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the HKSAR, read out the instruction, Huang Mengfu and Wang Zhongyu, two CPPCC vice chairmen, presented and addressed the summit in person. Lin Ruilin, Acting Chief Executive of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, Lv Xinhua, special appointee in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Special Appointee Office in Hong Kong, attended the summit and each delivered a speech. Over ten ministerial-level leaders attended and addressed the summit.

  The first summit was held successfully with full supports from the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and its related departments, the Liaison Office of the People’s Republic of China in Hong Kong, WTO, United Nations Industrial Development Organization, National Development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Commerce of the People’s Republic of China, Hong Kong Macao Affairs Office under the State Council, State Council Overseas Chinese Affairs Office, China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, All-China Federation of Industry and Commerce, CPPCC Committee for Liaison with Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan and Overseas Chinese, China Enterprise Confederation, the eight chambers of commerce in Hong Kong, and a number of foreign government departments and authoritative organizations as well.

  The first summit attracted a total of 8,600 persons at home and abroad to attend in various ways. At its opening ceremony alone, over 2,000 people attended. About 1,000 participators were Chinese government officials, world political leaders, leaders of the overseas Chinese, famous financiers and entrepreneurs both at home and abroad, as well as experts and scholars from authoritative institutes of research, etc. Besides there were friends from each and all mainstream media like Associated Press, Reuters and TASS, of which over a hundred were guest speakers. Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff, the President of Chile Piniella, Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, Prime Minister Najib of Malaysia, the former Prime Minister of Australia Kevin Rudd, IMF Managing Director Lagarde, etc., sent their messages to the first summit through video and in other ways. Some foreign ministers, senators, consulates in Hong Kong, WTO delegates, and representatives of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization also attended the summit. Major participators involved the representatives from the Hong Kong circles of industry and commerce, including over 800 presidents and higher leaders from enterprises nationwide like the top 500 Chinese enterprises, the top 500 privately-run enterprises in China and CCTC (China Chamber of International Commerce) well-known enterprises. Attracting so many high positions from enterprises in Mainland China to the same event in Hong Kong made the first summit a record in forums held in Hong Kong.

  Held annually, China Overseas Investment Summit aims at building itself into a world-level internationalized platform for the exchange and connection of Chinese and foreign investments; serving as a platform for the insiders to exchange ideas on the national policies and investment situations, for the Chinese investors to get engaged in foreign projects and for the investors to discuss and communicate with government officials and scholars; and playing a greater role in the implementation of the state “go global” strategy.

  The second China Overseas Investment Summit is scheduled to be held in Hong Kong Conference and Exhibition Center from August 22-23, 2012.
