Chongqing- The Chongqing Economic and Trade Fair of the second China International Consumer Products Expo (CICPE) was held on July 26 in Haikou City, south China’s Hainan Province, where Taiwan-invested enterprises, suppliers from different countries and areas, and purchasers from Chongqing attended the meeting.
Song Gang, an official of the Chongqing Municipal Commission of Commerce, promoted the advantages of Chongqing from location, industry, ecology, and system, and shared opportunities and prospects for economic and trade cooperation between domestic and foreign enterprises at the meeting.
“Chongqing will continue to welcome well-known domestic and foreign consumer goods enterprises to cooperate with local ones in Chongqing with an open attitude,” said Song. “We will seize market opportunities of the Chengdu-Chongqing economic circle to deepen economic and trade exchanges and achieve mutual benefits.”
As a pioneer of opening up in China, Hainan Province will continue to be open to building a professional, market-oriented, and internationalized trade and investment platform for customers from all over the world, said Gong Qijun, deputy director of the Hainan Provincial Bureau of International Economic Development (Hainan IEDB).
“We hope that the enterprises from Chongqing and the renowned domestic and foreign consumer brands will create business opportunities and achieve a win-win situation through this meeting,” said Gong.
With products covering food, health products, clothing, design, and other fields, three rounds of matching activities were conducted between the companies from both sides, and nearly 60 businesses were successfully matched. Each Chongqing enterprise communicated deeply and explored business opportunities, laying the foundation for expanding future economic and trade cooperation between the two sides.
Several Chongqing and other participating enterprises reached preliminary purchase and agency cooperation intentions. The suppliers who attended the meeting are from Australia, Canada, Denmark, Vietnam, and Ireland, engaged in cross-border e-commerce, food, health care products, construction, and garments.
The second China International Consumer Products Expo started on July 25 in Haikou and will run through July 30. Co-hosted by China’s commerce ministry and the Hainan provincial government, the expo is expected to attract more than 40,000 buyers and visitors.
The six-day expo has attracted 1,107 overseas companies and 1,643 brands from 61 countries and regions, and over 1,200 domestic brands. As the guest country of honor, France participates in the expo with nearly 50 enterprises and 250 brands, organizers said.
Successfully holding the Hainan expo will boost the continued consumption recovery, said China’s Vice Minister of Commerce Wang Shouwen. China is the world’s second-largest consumer market and the largest trader of goods. The country has taken various measures to promote the import of high-quality consumer goods, including the sales of automobiles and smart home appliances.
