Hi-Tech Fair Attracts More than 500,000 People
The 13th China Hi-Tech Fair ended yesterday with more than 500,000 people visiting the various displays and exhibits at the Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center. The fair attracted 2,500 investors and 2,900 exhibitors from 58 countries and regions. It was the largest fair so far with a total of 13,164 exhibits and the sales volume was slightly higher than last year’s fair.
There were 280 well known domestic and overseas companies that provided around 8,000 high level jobs during the job fair attracting high-tech professionals. Different forums and meetings were also held in the fair that featured speakers including ministers from different nations as well as leading entrepreneurs from around the world. Different versions of the hi-tech fair were held in Hungary and Israel last September, sparking interest from other countries in doing similar fairs in the future.
The fair was a platform for Chinese companies to enter the international market through major channels in which foreign companies can expand their business networks in China. The next China Hi-Tech Fair is scheduled for November 16 to 21 next year.
