The Biennial International Engineering and Technology Fair (IETF) which started off as an event to showcase Indian engineering products to international visitors in 1975, has since become a biennial event that brings together participants from countries across the world, to link and reinforce entrepreneurial energies across borders while underlining the importance of technology transfer. The IETF is organized with a partner country, which is provided a platform to project its capabilities and products.

Made in India and Enterprise India Exhibitions are organized in key markets to display Indian products abroad. Road Shows are conducted in different cities in various countries, with high-level delegations of Ministers, Officials and business leaders making presentations on the new India story.

There has been a collaboration with the World Economic Forum for over 20 years to host the annual India Economic Summit (IES) in New Delhi. The IES attracts increasing numbers of Business Leaders from across the world, and maps the economic development of the country while raising awareness about investment opportunities. In addition, CII International has ensured the presence of Indian industry and senior political leadership at Davos.

The Partnership Summit is an annual event where world leaders are invited to address delegates from diverse countries. Now in its 26th year, it is a flagship event of the International department.

Another tool used by CII International, is to undertake research and bring out publications, guides and background papers pertaining to different countries for members and delegates.
