GUANGZHOU, China, March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Canton Fair - China's highest profile trade summit - today helps businessmen from all over the world access the lucrative Chinese market. The event is proving increasingly popular with entrepreneurs from developing countries, and a growing number are now preparing to attend the 113th installment, set to kick off on April 15.
With its professional, user-friendly format, the Canton Fair consistently wins rave reviews from attendees. Businessmen from emerging markets particularly appreciate the opportunities on offer, as they take advantage of the event's high quality, competitively priced products to achieve ambitious business goals.
Brazilian Ricardo Falavina owns Intercondors, a leather product manufacturer specializing in leather toys and decorative processed leather. "This event has really impressed me," said Falavina after attending the Canton Fair for the first time last year. "China is a highly attractive market and I am now planning to collaborate with the China-Brazil Investment Development & Trade Center to jointly build a plant here to make leather toys."
"We used to rely heavily on imports from Europe," added Ronald Montario, commercial manager of Bolivian motorbike part retailer Becar Repuestos, after attending a Canton Fair recently with more than 80 Bolivian buyers. "However, now we have discovered that the quality Chinese products available here cost less. The fair has really opened up new business opportunities for us."
Indian businessman Prakafh Nainaya has visited the Canton Fair seven times since 2000. "The most important thing is the insight I receive into China's current business climate every time I attend," explained Nainaya. "The event offers a much wider choice of products than fairs elsewhere. I will definitely keep coming back to realize my business goals with valued business partners."
A growing number of African businessmen have also been drawn to the Canton Fair. Mozambican businessman Jose made his first trip to the 112th Canton Fair last year. "Now the Mozambican economy is not doing so well," he commented. "The global economy is not doing well. But China is doing well. I came here to bring Chinese goods back home to revive our economy."
Organizers now look forward to welcoming participants from around the globe to the 113th Canton Fair. Let China's premier trade event help your business grow.
