The History 
 
1981 – 1993

Starting from the year of 1979, the China contemporary advertising industry grew up rapidly with the reform and opening of the China market. The advertising growth of China foreign trade boomed up out of the norm. During these 10 years, the advertising cost China spent on its export commodities increased by ten times than that of the previous 10 years. The number of agencies qualified to do advertising for foreign trade also increased from 1 to nearly 50. Under this kind of circumstances, the former entity of today’s China Advertising Association of Commerce, China Advertising Association of Foreign Economy and Trade was born as the first national association of advertising industry. In this stage, the main task for the Association was to serve the trade of export, to help increase production and to enhance the advertising for export goods and meanwhile, to continuously build up and consolidate the advertising industry from both theoretical and practical aspects. During this period of time, in order to make China known in the global circle of economy, trade and advertising, and to have China get to know the world, moreover, to strengthen the advertising role in the economy development, CAAFT jointly held the Third World Advertising Congress together with South Magazine at the Great Hall of People in June 16 - 20, 1987 in Beijing. This was an important historical event made by the Chinese and the world advertising men. The congress attracted vast attention of its peer from both domestic and worldwide. Li Xiannian, the Chairman of the People’s Republic of China, received all delegates from both domestic and abroad.
