The 4th China Beijing International Cultural and Creative Industry Expo (ICCIE) opening on Wednesday is expected to attract a Taiwan delegation consisting of 73 exhibitors, the most in history.

It will be third time for the Taiwan exhibitors to come to the annual event. The exhibitors from the island harvested orders worth 80 million New Taiwan Dollars (TWD) (about 2.5 million U.S. dollars) in last expo.

The themed pavilion, titled "Fine works of Taipei Cultural and Creative Industry," will cover a total of 4,000 square meters. It will be divided into 12 parts, showcasing creative works of fashion design, derivatives of museums and works designed by students.

The island's National Palace Museum debuted at last expo and will exhibit products inspired by antiques this year. Institutions including Taipei Fine Arts Museum and Taipei's Museum of Contemporary Art will also bring works to the exhibition.

In addition, a trade fair will be held to promote Taiwan products and increase the cooperation between exhibitors on both sides of the Taiwan Strait.

The 5-day event has been organized by the Ministry of Culture, the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television, the General Administration of Press and Publication and the Beijing Municipal government.
