150,000 Buyers Expected At First China International Import Expo from November 5-10 In Shanghai

SHANGHAI, Jan. 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — The inaugural China International Import Expo (CIIE) will take place at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai from November 5-10, 2018.

China International Import Expo to Debut in Shanghai

Initial inquiries and bookings for CIIE indicate that attendance numbers will be unprecedented for the first-of-its-kind international trade forum. Interest is being driven by the growth of imports into China in 2017 that totaled almost RMB 12.5tn (USD 1.95tn), an 18.7% increase from 2016. This figure is expected to rise to USD 8tn over the next five years as China, the world’s second largest economy and second largest importer, continues its progression into new stages of development.

Six of the industries earmarked as having the biggest growth potential in the area of cross-border trade, which will be heavily featured at CIIE, are food and agricultural products; garments and consumer products; consumer electronics and household appliances; automobiles; medical instruments, medicine, and healthcare; and intelligent hi-tech equipment, all of which enjoyed impressive increases in imports between January and November of 2017:

Industry Value of imports from Jan. to Nov. 2017 (Y-o-y growth) Projected value of imports in five years Key growth drivers
Food and agricultural products USD 104.4bn (> 14%) USD 700bn Soy, infant formula, wine, fruit & vegetable juices
Garments and consumer products USD 12.85bn (> 13.2%) USD 65bn Cutlery, kitchenware, toys, diapers
Consumer electronics and household appliances USD 20.44bn (> 11.2%) USD 100bn Water heaters, air & water purifiers, earphones
Automobiles USD 45.8bn (> 15.4%) USD 260bn SUVs and new energy vehicles
Medical instruments, medicine and healthcare USD 35.88bn (> 17%) USD 250bn High-end equipment, key patented medicine

Professional Chinese visitor delegations from areas such as education, scientific research, culture and tourism will be in attendance, alongside multiple Chambers of Commerce, government groups, industry leaders, and professionals from major local enterprises across the many provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions of China. In addition to the above, the expo will include representatives from Chinese ecommerce and internet technology giants like Alibaba, JD.com, Suning, and kaola.com.

“With so many companies, organizations and visitors expected to be in attendance, we would like to invite all our exhibitors to name the Chinese buyers and companies they wish to attract,” said Sun Chenghai, Deputy Director General of CIIE Bureau. “We can then match those requests with the exhibits of CIIE exhibitors to provide a more accurate, effective and tailored experience to all of our guests.”

World Food Programme Chief commends UAE’s humanitarian role worldwide

The Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, received on Sunday David Beasley, Executive Director of the Rome-based World Food Programme. The WFP is holding its annual meeting of its Executive Board in Dubai for the first time out of Rome.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid welcomed the UN official and his team and wished success for the meeting.

H.H. Sheikh Mohammed applauded the role of the WFP in providing humanitarian and food assistance for over 90 million people in 70 countries.

Sheikh Mohammed and the WFP chief reviewed a variety of humanitarian issues and challenges facing the WFP in delivering much needed food assistance to those in need and reaching out to underprivileged people during times of wars.

For his part, David Beasley lauded the humanitarian role being played by the strategically located UAE through its humanitarian and charitable organisations, especially the International Humanitarian City in Dubai, and the support they provide to international humanitarian organisations, including provision of food and health supplies.

He termed the UAE’s bright humanitarian record as a ‘ role model’ for other countries, given its leading position among the world’s top aid providers for countries experiencing armed conflicts, natural disasters and famine.

WFP is the food-assistance branch of the United Nations and the world’s largest humanitarian organisation fighting hunger worldwide, delivering food assistance in emergencies and working with communities to improve nutrition and build resilience.

The UAE is participating in the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, OIC, emergency meeting of the Council of Foreign Ministers convening on Sunday to deliberate an urgent action against the Iran-backed Houthi militias’ launch of a ballistic missile targetting the Saudi capital.

Zaki Anwar Nusseibeh, Minister of State, who is leading the UAE delegation to the meeting, commended the role played by the OIC in convening the emergency meeting and in thrashing out all possible solutions to standing up to the rebels’ continued attempts to attack Riyadh.

“The UAE reiterates its inseparable bonds with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and our utter support for the Kingdom against all those seeking to threaten its security and stability,” affirmed Nusseibeh.

“The UAE is facing the same challenges besetting the sisterly Saudi Arabia and will continue to back the Kingdom’s firm stance in support of legitimacy in Yemen until the Yemeni government has restored peace and stability in line with the UN Security Council Resolution No. 2216, the GCC Initiative and its Implementation Mechanism and the outcome of the comprehensive National Dialogue conference, on Yemen.”

The meeting was attended by Yacoub Yousef Al Hosani, Assistant Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, MoFAIC, for International Organisations Affairs.
