The International Infrastructure Investment and Construction Forum (IIICF) is a global leading event of the infrastructure industry. Finalcad is participating in the 9th edition, held on June 7-8, 2018 in Macao SAR, China.

A leading event for the infrastructure industry

The International Infrastructure Investment and Construction Forum (IIICF) is an international forum with the theme of investment and construction of infrastructure, which was founded in 2010 by CHINCA with the approval of the Chinese Ministry of Commerce. The Forum serves as an important platform to exchange strategic thinking and insights, explore opportunities and seek cooperation. The Forum has been successfully held six sessions in Beijing and Macao respectively, having attracted more than 8,000 delegates from nearly 100 countries and regions, including about 150 ministerial officials. It has grown into a global leading event of the international infrastructure industry.

This year, the 9th edition of IIICF is expected to attract more than 1700 delegates from over 60 countries and regions including around 50 ministerial officials.

FOSTERING the Belt and Road Initiative

The 9th IIICF shall be convened with the theme of Fostering New Drivers of Development to Boost Infrastructure Construction and Connectivity. In the context of the transformation from the old development drivers to the new ones, the 9th IIICF shall probe into ways on how to boost the new drivers of infrastructure development and international cooperation through innovation, technological changes, and mode transformation, so as to promote infrastructure construction and connectivity over the Belt and Road countries. The 9th IIICF will open with the launching Ceremony of The Belt and Road Infrastructure Development Index 2018 and The Report on the Belt and Road Infrastructure Development Index 2018.

Digital Transformation as a key Driver

As part of the new drivers of development for infrastructure, the digital transformation has clearly been identified in the IIICF agenda. On Day 3, a dedicated session entitled "Digital Transformation: How Technologies Innovate the Infrastructure Industry" will specifically address this topic:

Digital Transformation: How Technologies Innovate the Infrastructure
Industry (June 8, 09:30-12:00, Parallel Forums)

In today's world, a new round of scientific and technological revolution and
industrial transformation is on the rise. The leading role of innovation and application of engineering technologies in the development of the infrastructure industry has become more prominent. What future will the digitalization of the infrastructure industry face? How do we integrate high technologies such as building information modeling (BIM), artificial intelligence, 3D printing, big data, and the Internet of Things into the development, construction, financing, and operations of infrastructure projects, increasing the efficiency of infrastructure operations while realizing automated construction? How do we design more flexible digital solutions to support business integration and increase return on investment?
