Sun Guangbin, secretary general of the CCCME
s solar branch, argued that Chinese manufacturers were more competitive because of falling costs, technology innovation, economies of scale and better management.
"We value our strong working relationship with CCCME
and appreciate their continuing support of the show.
According to Chinese sources, the designated head of CCCME's representative office will be Li Wenming, director-general of Executive Bureau of International Economic Cooperation of Ministry of Commerce of the People's Republic of China.
Taiwanese political observers analyze that the Chinese government appoints Li as the head of CCCME's representative office primarily because he can speak Hokkien, the most common dialect in Taiwan, and is well experienced in international economic cooperation in many aspects from civil engineering, to construction and management.
Meanwhile, Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), a semiofficial organization engaged in export promotion on the island, has decided to set up rep offices in Beijing and Shanghai as reciprocal units against CCCME's representative office in Taipei, with arrangement and organization already finished for the time being.
It was reported that statistics from CCCME
AUTO showed that China exported 849,900 vehicles, full sets of car spare parts and car chassis in 2011, up 49.96 percent from a year earlier and the largest figure seen since 2009.
China will dispatch three officials to head CCCME
's office in Taiwan, including Gao Li, vice chairperson of Mainland Association for Cross-Strait Economic and Trade Exchanges, and two assistants from the Ministry of Commerce and Taiwan Affairs Office of China's State Council.
Also the China Chamber of Commerce for Import & Export of Machinery & Electronics Products (CCCME
) has been selected as China's first trade organization to open office in Taiwan, with TAITRA planning to set up offices in Beijing and Shanghai, and CCCME

) will be the first Chinese trade organization to have its office in Taiwan.
