Press Release of the Opening of the 118th Session of China Import and Export Fair

The Canton Fair, (Oct. 14th, 2019, Guangzhou)
Dear friends from the press, ladies and gentlemen, 

Good morning! Welcome to the press conference for the opening of the 119th session of China Import and Export Fair. 

After preparing for half a year, we are ready for the 119th Canton Fair, which will open tomorrow. 

With the profound adjustment of China’s foreign trade and exhibition industry in face of the economic “New Normal”, Canton Fair, as China’s largest trade promotion platform, will accelerate its steps in reform and innovation and improve the effectiveness of exhibition. It will be pivotal in the transformation and upgrading of China’s foreign trade sector, the cultivation of a new competitive foreign trade advantage, and the China’s transformation from a big trading nation to a strong one. Following the instructions of making progress while maintaining stability and reform and innovation by the Ministry of Commerce, we will enhance the specialization level of the Fair, step up marketing campaign with new measures and optimize information exchange. We will also promote the development of “Smart Canton Fair” and “Green Canton Fair” to make contribution to the steady growth of China’s foreign trade sector.
