The 5th Overseas Chinese Imported Commodities Expo commenced in the picturesque county of Qingtian, located in the eastern province of Zhejiang, China, on Sunday.
Spanning a vast area of 90,000 square meters and divided into six main exhibition zones, the expo is set to welcome approximately 180,000 visitors during its four-day duration, from November 12 to 15.
