SHENZHEN, China, Nov. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Which words can describe the China Hi-Tech Fair (CHTF) 2017 better than "cutting edge", "innovative", "visionary" and "inspiring"? Staged in Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center from November 16 to November 21, this technology gala for top innovators of the world addressed the focal point of the national strategy and again proved to be a forward thinker in the nation's strive for innovation-driven development.
With a view to facilitating innovative development, CHTF 2017 elaborated on the theme of "Innovation-Driven Development and Supply Quality Upgrade".

In the CHTF 2017, both international engagement and the initial release of new products were at record levels.
Hailed as "the No.1 Technology Show in China", the CHTF 2017, like its predecessors, managed to draw in talented people in technology and business fields around the world and orchestrated fascinating brainstorming and clashes of ideas and views. Over 200 events and shows were staged during the CHTF 2017.
