Established in May 1952, China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT) comprises VIPS, enterprises and organizations representing the economic and trade sectors in China. It is the most important and the largest institution for the promotion of foreign trade in China.
The aims of the CCPIT are to operate and promote foreign trade, to use foreign investment, to introduce advanced foreign technologies, to conduct activities of Sino-foreign economic and technological cooperation in various forms, to promote the development of economic and trade relations between China and other countries and regions around the world, and to promote the mutual understanding and friendship between China and peoples and economic and trade circles of all nations around the world, in line with law and government policies of the People’s Republic of China.
With the approval of the Chinese government, the CCPIT started to adopt a separate name – China Chamber of International Commerce (CCOIC)- in 1988, which is used simultaneously with the CCPIT. The CCPIT admits new members from among enterprises in all parts of China and promotes trade through its functions of information consultation, exhibition, legal assistance, etc.
CCPIT Representative Office in Germany was founded in September 1986 and is one of the earliest Offices abroad set by CCPIT.
Guided by the principle of “Two Servings” including “serving the government and serving the enterprises”, our major task is, contacting and cooperating with relevant organizations in Germany in order to set up multi-level and multi-industry platforms between CCPIT/CCOIC and these organizations in Germany, cooperating with Chinese embassy and consulates in Germany, with the purpose of promoting the development of economic and trade relations between China and Germany.
