MIECF connects local enterprises to global green innovation trends
The 2018 Macao International Environmental Co-operation Forum and Exhibition (2018 MIECF) will connect local enterprises to the most salient green innovation trends worldwide when the show returns from 12-14 April.
Now in its 11th edition, MIECF has won the full support of local and international environment protection industries. Representatives of local companies that have effectively expanded their businesses through the attendance at last year’s MIECF consider the event an important platform for international green exchange and co-operation. According to them, MIECF has become an increasingly prominent platform in the environment protection sector and offers participants obstacle-free access to the latest international breakthroughs in the field.
A prominent environmental protection platform
Local entrepreneur Mr António Trindade advised that, thanks to last year’s MIECF, he was able to establish successful co-operation on research and development in the field of smart technology with partners from a Portuguese-speaking country – and that his project is now underway.
Mr Trindade informed that his firm has participated in every edition of MIECF since the show’s inception in 2008, and that his business has flourished in tandem with the event’s expansion over the years. By leveraging upon the opportunities created by the country's strategies – including the ‘Belt and Road’ initiative and the development of the ‘Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area’ – and based on the positioning of Macao’s development under the concept ‘One Centre, One Platform’, MIECF has launched different thematic exhibition areas and has long enabled enterprises to grasp more business opportunities related to environment protection, he remarked.
Exhibitors, experts and scholars of the world unite
In Mr Trindade’s opinion, aside from various green products and services exhibited at MIECF, one of the competitive advantages of the event over similar tradeshows is the on-site presentation – by exhibitors, experts and scholars from all over the world – on new green concepts and ideas, as well as the latest breakthroughs in green innovation domain. Many MIECF attendees are looking for project partners, creating abundant business opportunities, he reflected.
Moreover, the entrepreneur pointed out that the success of MIECF has gradually transformed the event into an influential model for other local exhibitions, and said that he believes MIECF will bring even greater impacts as the environment protection industry continues to develop internationally.
A key platform for local green businesses
Mr Sonny Liu, a local entrepreneur engaged in the environmental protection business, has also participated in every edition of MIECF since its launch in 2008. He remarked that MIECF is a key platform for local green businesses to reach out to the global world. His company has recorded numerous achievements from its past involvement in the show, including the successful collaboration with some local higher education institutions last year.
Another representative of a local environmental protection company, Mr Daniel Iao –whose attendance at 2018 MIECF will mark its participation in MIECF for five consecutive years – said the event has enabled his business to expand, particularly in relation to local projects. Through MIECF, his company has signed co-operation agreements with other local enterprises on the development of green walls and of greenbelts covering an area of over 5,000 square metres in residential complexes.
The countdown begins
The countdown begins for 2018 MIECF, which will be held at The Venetian Macao resort from 12-14 April.
The ‘Shaping of Eco-Cities for an Inclusive Green Economy’ is the main theme for the 2018MIECF. The three-day event includes the ‘Green Showcase’ exhibition area and the ‘Green Forum’.
