From 5 to 10 November 2018 the China International Import Expo (CIIE) takes place in Shanghai for the first time. Based on an idea by President Xi Jinping, it takes place against the background of the Belt and Road Initiative (New Silk Road) and is intended to give countries bordering the Silk Road the opportunity to export more products and services to China. Up to 150,000 participants are expected.

HHLA and Hafen Hamburg Marketing e.V. will be represented at this trade fair with a joint stand.

The port's key role for China trains is no accident, as HHM's Joint CEO Axel Mattern stresses: 'The Port of Hamburg is Europe's largest logistics hub and the leading port centre for trade with China. Rail traffic makes a decisive contribution to the port's logistics: Offering 2,000 container block train links per week on incoming and outgoing traffic, Hamburg is the top player on the market by a wide margin.'
