On December 14, The First Global Digital Trade Fair was successfully concluded. At present, the Digital Trade Fair is the only national and global professional exhibition with digital trade as the theme approved by the CPC Central Committee and the State Council. It is an important measure to implement the decision and deployment of the Twentieth National Congress of the Communist Party of China on "developing a digital trade and accelerating the building of a trade power." It is also the first major national exhibition held under the new situation of epidemic prevention and control. It is of great significance.
The First Global Digital Trade Fair has yielded fruitful results
With the theme of "digital trade and global trade," the exhibition focused on the whole industrial chain of digital trade, scientifically coordinated epidemic prevention and control and investment and trade promotion, presented a professional exhibition of 80000 square meters, and achieved fruitful results.
Global guests gather to build an international exchange platform.
Ireland, the guest of honor, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), and the United Nations International Trade Center (ITC) participated in the exhibition on the spot, and 7 international organizations, including the World Trade Organization (WTO), the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law, the World Free Zone Organization (WFZO), the International Organization for Coding Goods, and Smart Africa, participated in the exhibition online and offline.

The leaders of the member units of the organizing committee of the Digital Trade Commission, such as the Ministry of Commerce, the Publicity Department of the Central Committee, and the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, attended the relevant activities online and offline and 11 provinces and cities across the country organized delegations to participate in the conference. The "circle of friends" of digital trade has further expanded.
New digital products gather to lead the industry development trend.
Focusing on the whole industrial chain of digital trade, it has set up a comprehensive pavilion and six professional pavilions of digital brands, digital logistics, digital content, digital consumption, digital technology, and cross-border e-commerce, attracting more than 800 domestic and foreign leading enterprises to participate in the exhibition. It is estimated that the turnover of intended trade will reach 37.4 billion yuan, greatly boosting the confidence of exhibitors to expand the market.
A large number of new products, technologies, and services, such as post-quantum cryptography platform, domestic cloud computing operating system, time-space remote sensing cloud service platform, meta-universe open platform, and future community health scene solutions, were unveiled in the "debut," "debut" and "debut" of 315 products of 286 enterprises. We organized the selection of the Global Digital Trade Expo Pioneer Award (DT Award), attracting more than 160 projects to participate in the evaluation, including 22 winners, 14 bronze awards, and six silver awards. As it was the first selection, and some international enterprises affected by the epidemic could not participate in the evaluation on site, to ensure the benchmarking and internationality of the DT award, the organizing committee decided that the DT award was vacant.
The trade union will lead businesses to be active and help the economic transformation and upgrading.
Focusing on "turning exhibitors into investors," we will actively give play to the spillover effect of the Digital Trade Fair. Focusing on the three major fields of "Internet plus," new materials, and life and health, efforts were made to introduce a number of "Dahaogao" projects, and 89 projects from top 500 industry leaders and unicorn enterprises were signed inside and outside the exhibition venue, with a total investment of about 110 billion yuan. These projects will play an important role in upgrading Zhejiang's industrial level and core competitiveness and promoting Zhejiang's in-depth implementation of the "No. 1 Project" version 2.0 of the digital economy.
Collision of ideas and wisdom, gathering consensus on rules and standards.
Focusing on the five systems of the digital trade industry, platform, ecology, system, and regulation, the exhibition held 26 high-level forums focusing on cutting-edge economic and trade rules, cross-border data flow, digital copyright, cross-border payment, digital security governance, and other hot topics. More than 300 guests from international organizations and overseas institutions, national ministries and commissions, research institutions, and leading enterprises in the industry made speeches, delivered speeches or participated in discussions, released more than 110 major achievements, and made every effort to build a "wind vane" in the field of global digital trade.
