Event Summary:
China International Petroleum & Petrochemical Technology and Equipment Exhibition (CIPPE) 2014 will occur from March 22-24, at the new China International Exhibition Center. Organized by Zhenwei Int'l Exhibition Co., over the last 8 years, CIPPE has become the most established events of its kind in Asia, showcasing an array of companies in China's oil & gas and petrochemical industries. CIPPE is an excellent vehicle for U.S. firms interested in exporting to China. With the boom in the oil and gas industry and China's thirst for energy, China ranks second in world energy consumption (behind the United States, ahead of Japan). Economists predict that by 2020, China's GDP will be USD 4 trillion and the consumption of China's oil and gas will be about 5 billion barrel of equivalence (BOE). The Chinese government continues to push through reform and industry restructuring measures in order to encourage the necessary investment needed to meet the growth in energy demand. This has created tremendous opportunities for American firms of all size entering or expanding in the China Market.
