SHANGHAI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--$CHINA #china--Following a record-breaking year, the China International Import Expo (CIIE) is set for an even bigger event in 2024, providing a prime platform for global companies to enter the Chinese market.

Past CIIEs Saw Active Participation of Global Brands

“Thanks to the CIIE, we have improved our grasp of the potential of the Chinese market and developed stronger relationships with Chinese manufacturers, suppliers and customers,” said Daryl Lean, former VP of sales at KION Group.

Over the years, companies from 173 countries have participated in the CIIE, generating over $420 billion in transactions and debuting nearly 2,500 new products, technologies, and services.

INAC-Instituto Nacional de Carnes has showcased Uruguayan meat products at the expo for six years. In 2023, visitors sampled premium rib-eye steak and beef fillet. “There are many importers and distributors at the annual trade fair, with which we can communicate face-to-face and enhance trade cooperation,” said Josefina Valenti, marketing manager at INAC.

In 2023, 72 countries showcased their achievements in science, technology, culture, and art at the Country Exhibition. “The CIIE is an excellent platform for foreign investors to learn about China, and vice versa,” said Huseyin Emre Engin, consul general of Türkiye in Shanghai.

Hongqiao Forum Spotlights Global Issues

The sixth Hongqiao Forum in 2023 had over 8,000 attendees and featured 22 subforums on topics like financial reform and green investment.

Organizers have held symposiums and salons, inviting UN representatives, government officials, and scholars to contribute to this year’s themes.
