On the afternoon of Oct. 25th (local time), the 2019 China-CEEC Capital Economic and Trade Forum & Promotions, organized by CCPIT Beijing/Beijing Chamber of International Commerce and Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Tirana, was held in the capital of Albania.
As one of the supporting events of the 4th China-CEEC “17+1” Capital Mayors Forum, the Forum & Promotions attracted great attention from the Albanian government as well as local enterprises.

The friendship between China and CEEC, including Albania, has stood the test of time. Today, the Belt and Road Initiative and the “17+1” program have brought China closer to Albania, providing a golden opportunity and a broader arena for further engagement of our industrial and commercial sectors. CCPIT Beijing spares no effort to expand cooperation with CEEC’s capital chambers as well as investment and trade agencies. It has succeeded with flying colors in building more platforms for interactions and services, assisting CEEC enterprises with international operations, and deepening economic and trade cooperation between Beijing and CEEC.
