The fifth CIIE benefits countries along the Belt and Road
SHANGHAI, July 29, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

A major platform for international procurement, investment promotion, cultural 
exchanges and open cooperation, the China International Import Expo (CIIE) has 
been held successfully for four consecutive years and is widely regarded as an 
international public good and the multinational trading system, as well as a 
pivotal carrier for building an open world economy and a community with a 
shared future for mankind.

Since its inception in 2018, the CIIE has been growing in scale and influence. 
The area of its business exhibition increased from 270,000 square meters in 
2018 to 366,000 square meters in 2021. Exhibitors at the past four CIIEs 
launched more than 1,500 new products, technologies and services and clinched 
tentative deals worth over $270 billion.

As the CIIE enters its fifth year, more and more countries along the Belt and 
Road have begun to cast their sights on the Chinese market and export their 
products to China.

At the first CIIE, Ma Yuxia, a Chinese businesswoman based in South America, 
introduced alpaca plush toys to the Chinese market.

Ma and her Peruvian partners rented a small 9-square-meter booth to display and 
promote these toys and other traditional hand-made crafts in Peru. They also 
established their own brand called Warmpaca.

That outing to the expo proved to be incredibly fruitful. After participating 
in the CIIE for four consecutive years, Warmpaca can now be found in more than 
20 malls in China.

To date, more than 80 percent of the planned business exhibition area for the 
fifth CIIE has been reserved. More than 260 Fortune Global 500 companies and 
industry leaders will attend the expo this year.

Many countries have confirmed their participation in the country exhibition, 
while a new World Openness Report and World Openness Index will be released at 
the Hongqiao International Economic Forum, a major part of the expo.

With so many showing their interest, space will be filling up fast. Be sure to 
sign up for the fifth edition before time runs out! Click here to register:
