Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

19th ICOSPA Congress for the first time held in China, which will certainly promote the progress of Chinese sheet metal forming industry, and will bring a great impact on the development and growth of the world’s sheet metal forming industry.

The modern sheet metal forming industry in China, gotten off the ground in the 1950s, and shaped in the 1980s, has been developed in recent decades. There is little communication in sheet metal forming between China and abroad until 2005. After nearly ten years of continuous and unremitting efforts, CCMI has not only established a stable relationship between China and world’s sheet metal forming industry, but also pushed Chinese metal forming industry going towards the world gradually!

No matter in China or the global sheet metal forming industry, there are still many problems existed waiting for solving and resolving. Unfortunately, the problems existed has not been settled completely, which may be replaced by the new ones, that has been brought out and troubled of us. It is the fact, in the moment, how we adapt to the huge changes and rapid development of this era. Where we go? Let us be filled with enthusiasm to participate in this congress, and seek our cooperation and find the answers or solutions expected.

Our team is ready for the meeting! Your appearance and presence is the greatest affirmation to and the best reward for our efforts, and will bring the tremendous pleasant surprise to us as well!

With best wishes!
