In the afternoon of November 12th, TDIA will organize the "Seminar on Beijing Olympic Games and TD-SCDMA." The Beijing 2008 Olympic Games is regarded as a trigger of China's 3G service. This summit will look into opportunities related to Beijing Olympic telecommunication services. Speakers from government bureaus and operators will introduce the telecom service, market demand and solutions for the Game.

With more than a half billion mobile subscribers and 38% penetration rate, China is still one of the biggest potential markets for mobile technologies and services, especially for the third generation mobile communication (3G). Regionally, Tianjin is one of the hottest areas in China's mobile telecom industry. About one in ten mobile phones in the world is produced there. Besides the huge facility of Motorola and Samsung, ZTE announced a huge investment with an amount of US$650 million in Tianjin. The new project of ZTE focuses on WiMAX and other mobile technologies.

In order to boost the development of North China, the central government of China launched a series of favorable policies for the New Tianjin Binhai Area (TBNA). TEDA is located at the center of TBNA. IMIE is the largest mobile phone industry event in China, which is held by TEDA, China Telecom Institute and other organizations. The show had a space of 20,000 square meters and attracted more than 20,000 visitors in 2007.

Speakers from Beijing Olympic Organizing Committee, Datang Mobile, Anritsu, ZTE and terminal vendors will introduce the LTE of TD-SCDMA, the end-end testing environment, latest progress of the under going TD-SCDMA networking in ten Olympic cities in China; and the terminal options to visitors of the Beijing Olympics. Panelists from operators, technology vendors, and financial organizations will talk about TD-SCDMA's past and future. Q & A will be held at the last section of the Summit.

In the evening of November 13th, TEDA, IMIE and TDIA will co-host "Reception and Salon for Mobile Elites and Managers" during the GSMA Mobile Asia Congress. The salon will be the best place to network with C-level from the Asia mobile industry. Besides executives from members of TDIA, senior officials from the Administrative Committee of TEDA and other government bureaus, China market experts from IMIE will share their experience with guests of the salon.

"TEDA is paying much attention to the construction of the mobile communication industry chain at the center of TBNA. Annually, we jointly hold the IMIE with some other leading local partners. And the IMIE has been supported by China's Ministry of Information Industry (MII) and Ministry of Commerce (MOC)," said Jiaxiang Li, Secretary General of IMIE. "So both TEDA and IMIE have become shortcuts for overseas companies to access China's fast growing mobile communication industry and market. Now, we have a plan to connect this event to more overseas partners. That's the reason why we participate in the GSMA Asia Mobile Congress actively. Besides meeting with our potential partners, we hold two high class seminars with TDIA for global industry people. The events will help the industry to find a direct approach to the China market."
