We were excited to participate in the second China International Import Expo (CIIE) in Shanghai, China last week. The CIIE is an international expo giving countries around the world an opportunity to showcase products and services on a global stage that promotes international trade in China.
“Caterpillar highly values the long-term partnerships with our Chinese customers and partners and is committed to mutually beneficial growth through our innovative technologies and services,” said Qihua Chen, vice president of Caterpillar’s China Operations Division. “We are proud of promoting sustainable development in the energy, mining and construction industries in China through close collaboration with our customers.”
On the world stage
The exhibition carried a “New Era, Shared Future,” theme. We showcased advanced products, services and solutions under our brands Cat®, Solar Turbines, MWM, MaK and Progress Rail. Our exhibits featured engines and power gen sets, along with machine and engine scale models, highlighting our capability and expertise, as well as our commitment to help Chinese customers improve efficiency and sustainability.
Powering the world
We are committed to maximizing customer value and success by powering the world with our products and life cycle services. Through both imported and locally-manufactured products, we provide customers with advanced technologies and solutions that aim to help them significantly reduce owning and operating costs while increasing power density and maximizing the efficiency of power systems.
Committed to customer success
Qihua Chen, vice president of Caterpillar’s China Operations Division also attended a customer forum hosted by China National Petroleum Corporation. He emphasized that Caterpillar is committed to maximizing customer value and success by powering the world with our low-emission and quiet-operation products and life cycle services. On the first day, Caterpillar signed letters of intent (LOIs) and agreements for the sale and purchase of goods and services.
While at CIIE, we strengthen relationships with senior government officials from including Jiangsu, Shandong, Inner Mongolia, Beijing and Shanghai - provinces/municipalities where we have a presence and business opportunities.
