Macao is to hold the 12th International Trade and Investment Fair (MIF) this October, the organizers said in Macao on Wednesday.
The Macao Trade and Investment Promotion Institute held a press conference, announcing that this version will feature some 700 exhibition booths, a 50-percent rise over the previous version.
The 11th MIF, which was hosted in 2006, attracted 148 commerce and trade delegations from 47 countries and regions.
The four-day annual event has become an important trade platform for enterprises from the Chinese mainland, and European and Portuguese-speaking countries.
