China's largest trade exhibition, the 101st session of the Canton fair, which for the first time features imported commodities, opened in south China's Guangdong Province on Sunday.
The massive trade exhibition, known for the past 50 years as the Chinese Export Commodities Fair, has added the word import to its name and is now formally known as the Chinese Import and Export Commodities Fair.
The import section this year features the products of 314 foreign companies from 36 countries and regions. They're offering a wide range of products from machinery, automobiles, IT products, household electric appliances, building materials, jewelry and food and agricultural products.
At least 6,000 Chinese corporate buyers have been invited to the fair, which runs from April 15 to April 30.
