CIIE: Larger, high-quality international import expo gearing up for November
SHANGHAI, Aug. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/--

The third China International Import Expo, to be held as scheduled at the 
National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai) in November, features a 
larger planned business exhibition space and is set to wow participants with 
more amazing offerings. 

"The third CIIE is slated to be held in Shanghai from Nov 5 to 10, and 
preparations for the expo are all well underway," said Sun Chenghai, deputy 
director-general of the CIIE Bureau at a briefing last Friday.

According to Sun, the focus of current preparations for the third CIIE has 
shifted from attracting exhibitors to drawing in buyers and organizing the 
expo. Strong progress has been made.

Undamped passion 

The planned business exhibition space for the third CIIE spans 360,000 square 
meters, 60,000 sq m larger than the planned business exhibition area of last 
year and up by 20 percent. 

The business exhibition area will be divided into six sections displaying food 
and agricultural products, automobiles, the intelligent industry and 
information technology, consumer goods, medical equipment and healthcare 
products, as well as trade in services.

The number of Fortune 500 companies and industry-leading companies attending 
the third CIIE almost equals that of the first and second edition, the CIIE 
Bureau said.

A greater number of policies than last year have been released and is expected 
to attract and better serve exhibitors and buyers. The General Administration 
of Customs recently launched a slew of supporting policies to facilitate the 
customs clearance of attendees at the expo.

Improved services for buyers

More targeted measures to attract buyers have been taken. Based on transaction, 
customs clearance and credit data from the previous expos, organizers 
identified and sent invitations to 40,000 import companies. Nine roadshows to 
attract buyers have also been organized.
