This year's foreign trade has shown a stable start and strong development resilience, but the weakening of foreign demand and the decline in orders remain the biggest challenges faced by China's foreign trade this year, spokesperson for the Ministry of Commerce, Shu Jueting, stated at a regular press conference on March 16th.
“A large number of overseas customers are eager to come to China to participate in exhibitions and explore the market, and Chinese enterprises are also looking forward to obtaining orders and expanding trade through exhibitions.” Shu also said on March 23. And it is expected that exhibitions held in China throughout the year will see significant increases compared to the previous year.
The Consumer Expo to be held in Hainan and the Canton Fair to be held in Guangzhou in April will both become important plays in stabilizing foreign trade and increasing orders this year, and are expected to drive the continued recovery of imports and exports in the country.
