Commerce Department Announces Companies Participating in the
Virtual Trade Mission to China Computerworld Expo 2000

WASHINGTON, D.C.-The U.S. Department of Commerce is extending the deadline for U.S. information technology firms to participate in the first ever U.S.A. Virtual Trade Mission to China Computerworld Expo, in Beijing, August 21-24, 2000. The deadline has been extended to August 4, 2000.

The U.S. Virtual Trade Mission to China will assist participating companies in making valuable business contacts and gaining market exposure to one of the world's fastest growing IT markets. Companies who will be participating include: Financial Intranet, Inc., NeuralWare, Computercraft Corporation, KEYTEK, INC., Advanced Information Services, Inc (AIS), Moon Global Network, Inc., Numonics, Raritan Computer, Sonic Foundry, w-Trade Technologies, Western Scientific, and Oryx.

Firms aspiring to break into the emerging Chinese market are urged to take advantage of such a cost-efficient investment. This is the most effective opportunity to get ahead in a vibrant marketplace as China transforms itself into an information based economy.

This is the 8th China Computerworld Expo and it will be held concurrently with the 16th World Computer Congress and the 6th Networking China Expo. The combination of these three events is China's largest IT trade show, with an estimated 300,000 invited attendees. Products appropriate to this exhibition include computers, software, peripherals, Internet and online services. Attendees will include major corporate and government users, CIOs, MIS and KM professionals, resellers, ISVs, and more. This Department of Commerce virtual trade mission will be the first of its kind that allows participants to leverage the Internet and video-conferencing technology to market their products and services throughout China for one year without having to travel.

At China Computerworld Expo, your company's products and profile will be featured in Chinese on an electronic showcase (http://e-expoUSA.doc.gov) of U.S. products and services that visitors will be able to access online, and your product literature will also be displayed at the show. Our experienced trade specialists, interpreters, and embassy staff will be on site to publicize your products to potential buyers. The cost of participation in the electronic showcase is $750. As an optional follow-up activity, you can participate for an additional fee in a Video Gold Key Service, whereby the Department of Commerce in China will arrange high quality, pre-screened, one-on-one appointments via video conferencing with contacts whose interests and objectives match yours.
