Babak Amin, an Iranian buyer attending the 133rd China Import and Export Fair, finished his light lunch and quickly made his way to another round of meetings with business partners. A regular attendee for over 10 years, Amin was impressed by China’s ability to provide customized manufactured goods to meet customer requests, benefiting both sides. The second phase of the fair, featuring light industrial products such as daily consumer goods, gifts, and home decor, attracted over 12,000 companies and received over 815,000 visits, generating export deals worth more than 4.5 billion U.S. dollars.
Amin signed four new cooperation agreements with Chinese suppliers and was not the only satisfied buyer at the fair. Marco, an Italian buyer focused on horticultural products, visited the booth of Guangzhou Light Holdings Ltd. and was pleased to hear that Chinese products could offer quality at a lower price. He observed that Italian consumers are happy to buy products from China.
Exhibitors have been upgrading traditional industries through innovative ideas, optimized designs, and improved technology. For example, Guangdong Xin Yu Technology Industrial Co., Ltd., developed an electric drumstick with a gyroscope that produces drum beats through waves, while Guangzhou Megos Tech G.Z. Co., Ltd., focuses on intellectual property rights to develop international markets. General Manager Ye Weilun discussed intended orders with domestic and foreign clients and emphasized the importance of enhancing the core competitiveness of his company.
Overall, the Canton Fair has demonstrated China’s ability to provide suitable manufactured goods in response to customer requests, with a diverse range of companies showcasing their products and securing profitable business partnerships.
