Australian SMEs to be Featured at the 2010 China SME Fair
The largest gathering of Australian companies overseas for a trade fair is happening on September 15 to 19. More than 300 Australian small and medium enterprises (SMEs) will take part in the 2010 China Small and Medium Enterprise Fair in Guangzhou. Australian SMEs will exhibit their products and services at the Australian Pavilion, which covers an area of 10,000 sqm at the Guangzhou International Convention and Exhibition Center.
The Australian Trade Commission (Austrade) gathered enterprises that will feature food and beverage, wine, finance and business services, corporate training and education, clean technology and green building, creative and consumer goods. Jeff Turner, Deputy Consul General and Senior Trade Commissioner of the Australian Consulate, said “We are hoping Shenzhen enterprises will attend the fair and seek opportunities to cooperate with Australian companies.”
Austrade will organize a Night of Australia for approximately 1,000 guests to open the Australian Pavilion and collaborate with L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival organizers to host Australia’s largest fashion display in China so far.
The China-Australia Green Building and Eco-City Forum will be launched during the fair. The fair will promote Australian green building and eco-city capabilities at national and regional levels to Chinese officials involved in urban planning and construction, environmental protection, water treatment and energy saving. “The fair is about creating opportunities for Australia’s grass-roots organizations, our SMEs, in China, Australia’s most important trade partner,” Turner said.
