Aiming at promoting cooperation and exchanges between Chinese and European manufacturers, the Sino-European Manufacturing Forum held in every June is a non-profit professional forum that involves events such as summits, high-tech product launches, the establishment of technology M&A funds and “college of intelligent manufacturing” projects.

CTI’s professional translation and interpreting services ensured the forum went on smoothly and were highly appraised by the attendees. The CTI will continue to work with major international forums and conferences to promote Sino-foreign exchanges.
