CeBIT Asia will be on display in China from August 8 to 11 this year. The CeBIT Asia exhibition program is specially tailored to the needs of the Chinese market. Products and solutions will be showcased in information technology and telecommunications, network computing, and office automation.

During the exhibition, an extensive program of conferences and company presentations on the subjects of "modernizing government and business" is also planned. Some of the main topics will be general administration and management processes, commercial processes linked to the public sector, and economic development and assistance.

"We choose Shanghai as our priority city, in the hope that the dynamic city will attract more expert visitors," said Qian Jun, general manager of Hannover Fairs China Ltd, the organizer.

Some 500 companies from 22 countries will exhibit their products, including some world famous multinational companies.

Experts estimate that China will become the world's second largest information technology market in five years, behind the United States. And by 2010, China will be the biggest telecommunications market in the world.

"China's soaring economy will provide a good opportunity for global IT and telecom companies," said an official with Hannover.
