The Chinese festival, which until now was held once a year in Düsseldorf, will be expanded. The three city mayors involved have announced that from 2018, it will also be celebrated in Duisburg and Cologne. On an annual rotation basis, the three cities will host the event shortly before or after the Chinese Business and Investors Forum, which is already held in Düsseldorf, Cologne and Duisburg in alternation. The new format will begin next year in Düsseldorf, the capital of North Rhine-Westphalia, with Cologne following in 2019 and Duisburg in 2020.
Since 2011, Düsseldorf has celebrated the Chinese festival on the second Saturday in September, attracting 30,000 visitors every year, who are given an insight into the rich culture and tradition of China. In the same year, NRW.Invest created the Business and Investors Forum China, which offers Chinese investors a professional platform for mutual exchange and for exchange with German companies. With over 900 Chinese companies investing in North Rhine-Westphalia, it is the number one investment location in Germany.
