The ongoing second China International Import Expo (CIIE) is running from Nov 5 to 10 in Shanghai, and a Xiamen exhibition group made up of 475 firms with nearly 2,000 people is seeking business opportunities at the global event, Xiamen Daily reported.
This year's CIIE, whose tagline is "New Era, Shared Future", is hosting more than 3,000 enterprises from over 150 countries and regions, and the number of newly launched products and technologies presented at the event exceeded those of last year.
The Xiamen exhibition group, consisting of government officials and enterprise representatives, is primarily seeking cooperation in food and agricultural products, medical equipment, medicine and health care, and service trade.
In addition, promotional seminars for high-end equipment and intelligent manufacturing will be highlighted at the expo, aiming to showcase Xiamen's development and opening-up and attract more investment.
A newly-added exhibition of China's time-honored brands and intangible cultural heritage items is one of the highlights of this year's expo. In addition, various traditional performances, such as Nanyin, Fujian opera, and shadow plays, will be staged to showcase Fujian culture.
