Belarusian business at the Canton Fair. On March 23, 2017 the Belarusian Chamber of Commerce and Industry discussed the possibility of exhibiting Belarusian products at the largest trading forum of China.
The Canton Fair gathers hundreds of thousands of visitors from all over the world annually. The next fair will be opened on the 15th of April, 2017.
Participation of small and medium Belarusian businesses in the Fair will help to establish business contacts, find partners and increase the trade. Moreover, Belarusian products are known on all the continents.
Margarita Fedotova, senior vice president of the Russian-Asian Union of Industrials and Entrepreneurs:
Products in China are in demand at the moment, they are interested in foreign food products, especially from Belarus, because they are green-labelled products, and there is a true interest to these products. However, questions of logistics and transportation arise, because green-labelled product’s shelf life isn’t long.
The Fair is held every two years. Nearly 200 representatives of Belarusian organizations were registered at the previous Fair, but in a visitor capacity.
