Announcement about the China Overseas Investment Fair

To all foreign embassies and enterprises in China:

The China Overseas Investment Fair (COIFAIR) is organized by the China Overseas Development Association (CODA, previously CIODPA) and China Development Bank (CDB). It has been successfully held 4 previous times and has achieved significant positive results both at home and abroad. Recently, however, CODA has been informed that some unrelated companies have been advertising and holding events under the name, “2013 China Overseas Investment Fair.” These actions are misleading to foreign agencies and enterprises and have a very negative impact. Hence, we formally issue a statement.
