Under the general downturn of global economy, China still remains an attractive destination for investors and manufacturers with world-class products due to a new round of high-level opening-up policies, measures to encourage expanding market access to other regions of the world, and major incentives for high value-added industries, and its relatively stable internal political and business environment. This is also why most international group companies regard the Chinese market as one of their business focus.

    At the same time, after more than 30 years of accumulation, China's manufacturing industry has a complete industrial supply chain, which has created favorable conditions for the development of China's manufacturing industry. Meanwhile, it has also attracted industrial procurement officers and professionals from all over the world to come to China to purchase various products and materials. This is also why a considerable number of group companies have established global procurement centers in China. This is in line with the general trend of economic globalization, market globalization and procurement globalization.

    In the field of energy and public utilities, due to the revolutionary changes brought by digital transformation to the industry, new challenges and opportunities have also been brought to the procurement of leading international energy or utilities enterprises. Specifically in the field of energy metering, China has become the main manufacturing and supply base of global electricity meters, water meters and related products, and also the place where global procurement officers often gather. Every year, a large number of international procurement officers come to China to find related suppliers and partners.

    In order to provide an opportunity for global procurement officers and professionals related to energy and public utilities to exchange and discuss with each other and face-to-face with manufacturers from China and Asia, we plan to hold the First Procurement & Cooperation Strategy Summit (PCSS) co-located with the 14th METERING China Annual Conference & Exhibition.

    Expected that all participants will fully exchange views and develop friendly cooperation.

    Looking Forward to Meeting You in Beijing on April 26-29, 2020
