The China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT), also called the China Chamber of International Commerce (CCOIC), is a trade body founded in 1952.[1] CCPIT is controlled by the Ministry of Commerce.[2][3]


In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, CCPIT was charged with issuing force majeure certificates to Chinese companies unable to meet their contractual trade obligations.[4] In September 2023, CCPIT criticized the CHIPS and Science Act.[5]


The CCPIT develops business cooperation and exchanges with foreign countries and has long been associated with the Chinese Communist Party's united front strategy.[1][6][3] It is charged with organizing trade fairs and events in promotion of the Belt and Road Initiative.[7]
