BEIJING TO HOST EXPO IN 2019

China will host its second Expo in less than 10 years: last week it was officially announced that Beijing received a formal approval from the BIE (Bureau international des expositions) to start organizing its event. The Expo theme will be “Live Green, live better”.

Mr. Wang Jinzhen, Vice President of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT), has expressed his satisfaction with the BIE’s endorsement.

China’s next steps will be speeding up the preparation and promoting the event by organizing symposia with experts in the field.
