Renowned Canton Fair
celebrates 114th session
More exhibitors and broader product
range makes this year’s Canton Fair more
dynamic than ever
BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE CHINA IMPORT AND EXPORT FAIR
The China Import and Export Fair, renowned as the “Canton Fair”, is an
important channel of China’s foreign trade and a demonstration of the country’s
policy to open up to the rest of the world. The Fair plays a key role in
advancing the development of China’s foreign trade and the economic and
trade exchanges between China and other countries around the world.
Canton Fair is co-hosted by the Ministry of Commerce of the People’s
Republic of China and the People’s Government of Guangdong Province
and is organized by the China Foreign Trade Centre. It is held every spring
and autumn in Guangzhou, China. Since its establishment in 1957, Canton
Fair has enjoyed the longest history, the largest scale, the most complete
exhibit variety, the best business turnover in China, and the biggest buyer
attendance from the broadest range of countries for 113 sessions. The 113th
Canton Fair concluded on May 5, 2013, attracting 202,766 buyers from 211
countries and regions. Buyer attendance last year increased by 7.06 per
cent over the previous session. These figures reflect the huge commercial
value of Canton Fair and its importance in contributing to global trade.
Focused on international demand, Canton Fair exhibits over 150,000
categories of quality products, both from China and overseas. These are
products with famous brands, traditional design or creative innovation, all
reflecting the latest features representative of different sectors. Canton Fair
is also a comprehensive and specialized trade event. About 24,000 outstanding
enterprises from all over the world participate in each session. For the
upcoming 114th session, we will improve the information collection and the
layout of exhibits in the National Pavilion in a more professional way and
optimize and differentiate the standards of exhibit categorization to improve
the effectiveness of the Fair. Canton Fair will also improve its qualification
review of exhibitors, adopt the standard of 5 per cent annual turnover rate of
exhibitors, and improve the quality of exhibition organization.
International appeal
The International Pavilion, developed for the 101st session to promote the balanced
growth of both imports and exports, has been a mainstay of the Fair for 13
sessions, and has been included in Phase 3 of the Fair for the past six sessions.
Last year’s event featured more than 900 stands in the International Pavilion;
562 enterprises from 38 countries and regions exhibited their products,
totaling 10 more enterprises than the last session. For the 114th session, we
will step up the review of professional standard of exhibits in the International
Pavilion, invite more exhibitors from countries and regions that
have trade deficit with China, and improve the quality of exhibitors.
