The 18 May 16 Cleantech Marketplace Forum at Beijing, China provided an international platform:
•Connecting Cleantech companies seeking financing & investment (venture & growth capital, project financing, etc.) with investors;
•Connecting Cleantech companies seeking project and market opportunities with project developers and overseas market partners;
•Connecting different Cleantech clusters from across Asia to explore opportunities & collaboration.
Green Trade Hub (GTH) member companies from China, Singapore and Taiwan joined the IUIA Forum and benefitted from the business networking and matching with accelerators, investors and enterprises.
This follows the MOU signing of GAC Ventures with IUIA on 17 March 2016 on a number of areas including Green Trade Hub (GTH) and overseas missions and investment/product roadshows facilitating overseas market access.
GTH, by being plugged into the East Asia Business Exchange (EABEX) (www.eabex.org), will allow these companies to be promoted to overseas markets, and to have a 1-to-1 business matching against one of more than hundred thousand companies in 13 different markets across ASEAN, China, Japan and Korea.
GTH was unveiled to more than 200 participants from countries such as China, Singapore, and Taiwan joining the forum.
