Guest of honor themed exhibition areas being launched for the first time  

The 12th Processing Fair will launch guest of honor themed exhibition areas for the first time and invite representative countries to be the guests of honor. The fair will possess richer international elements with the addition of the themed  exhibition areas.

The journalist learned that invitation of overseas buyers to purchase on the spot marks an important step for the Processing Fair to boost domestic and foreign trade integration. The Processing Fair first proposed nationwide, worldwide and online presence of products of processing trade in 2014. In 2016, it collectively introduced overseas buyers particularly buyers from the countries and regions along the Belt and Road Initiative to accelerate domestic and foreign trade integration.  

The 11th Processing Fair held this year also altered the previous practice of simply encouraging enterprises to expand domestic and overseas markets and sought breakthroughs from food by setting up an international food exhibition area, which  has produced notable results.
