On October 30, China International Agricultural Machinery Exhibition 2019 (CIAME 2019) was unveiled in Qingdao. The event was jointly sponsored by China Agricultural Machinery Distribution Association, China Agricultural Mechanization Association and China Association of Agricultural Machinery Manufacturers, and organized by China National Machinery Industry International Co., Ltd.

Zhang Xiaolun, CPC Committee Secretary and Chairman of SINOMACH, attended the opening ceremony and toured the booths upon invitation, accompanied by Ding Hongxiang, member of the Standing Committee of the CPC SINOMACH Committee and SINOMACH Deputy General Manager.
Prior to the opening ceremony, Zhang Xiaolun met with Wang Qingxian, Secretary of CPC Qingdao Municipal Committee, Wang Jianxiang, Secretary of the Management Committee of the West Coast New Area, and Zhang Xingwang, Director of the Department of Agricultural Mechanization. Wang Qingxian said that “Qingdao should seize the two major opportunities in constructing the Shandong Free Trade Zone Qingdao Subdistrict and the SCO Demonstration Zone to unswervingly build a bridgehead of opening-based development. CIAME 2019 should be more than just an exhibition, since it is aimed at all countries along the ‘Belt and Road.’ I hope that we should avail us of this opportunity to create a fixed permanent exhibition platform in Laixi Area.
Zhang Xiaolun introduced the status quo of the agricultural machinery and equipment industry of SINOMACH, mentioning China YTO and Chinese Academy of Agricultural Mechanization Sciences as influential enterprises in the agricultural machinery industry. He also pointed out that “SINOMACHINT as a SINOMACH subsidiary is currently the largest central enterprise in the Chinese exhibition industry. Its annual exhibition area exceeds 3 million m2 in domestic and international markets. The two sides can use its platform to jointly promote cooperation in key areas, enhance the visibility and influence in Qingdao, promote its high-quality development, and help it to play a bigger role in building the economic corridor for the new Eurasian Continental Bridge and maritime cooperation along the “Belt and Road”.
After the meeting, Zhang Xiaolun attended the opening ceremony of CIAME 2019 and toured the exhibition hall.
