Xiamen municipal bureau of commerce and the China Foreign Trade Center (CFTC) held a docking and promotion event on Feb 25 in Xiamen, Fujian province for the upcoming 131st China Import and Export Fair (Canton Fair).
Representatives from eight trade associations and retailers, including the Xiamen Federation of Industry and Commerce and the Xiamen Import and Export Chamber of Commerce, as well as representatives from 20 brand companies, such as Tianma Microelectronics Co and Xiamen Golden Dragon Bus Co attended the event.
At the event, officials from CFTC introduced the preparation of this year's Canton Fair as well as new measures and investment attraction plans, which meet the national economical circulation strategy.
They explained in detail the docking process for purchasers, the application process for the debut exhibition of new products, local service guarantee, and the epidemic control and prevention policies.
The Canton Fair has taken place 130 times, making it China's most complete international trade event, with the longest history, highest level, greatest scale, and widest range of items.
Currently, the Xiamen trading group has organized a total of 39 brand booth companies and 125 general booth companies to apply for the offline exhibition of the 131st Canton Fair, requesting a total of 507 booths.
Xiamen is one of the most economically competitive cities in China and was one of the first Special Economic Zones on the Chinese mainland. As a vice-provincial city independently listed on the State development plan, it has provincial-level authority in economic administration and local legislative power. In 2010, the Xiamen SEZ was expanded to cover the entire municipality. Today, Xiamen is a modern and international port city.
