The 118th Canton Fair: "Steady Sales and Buyer Numbers in Key Areas show Future Promise"


GUANGZHOU, China, Nov. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire=KYODO JBN/ --

Closing on November 4, the 118th installment of the Canton Fair - China's most

prestigious trade event - showed slight decrease of overall buyer attendance as

well as growth in key areas. 177,544 overseas buyers from 213 countries and

regions around the world attended the Fair, a decrease of 4.6% over same period

of last year. However, overcoming widespread concern over currency

fluctuations, sales of certain key products were significantly up, while many

purchasing countries also showed an encouraging increase in buyer numbers.

According to the organizer, the first three days of the Fair witnessed

better-than-expected sales for many major Chinese industrial sectors, with home

appliances, computers and communications equipment all showing a year-on-year

increase in the number of contracts signed. Other high-tech sectors such as

mechanical and new energy products also showed an increase in contract volume.

The Chinese home appliance industry, with recent advances in smart products and

automation underpinned by cutting edge design, took the lead in attracting the

most buyers. Turnover of home appliances in the first session saw a

year-on-year increase of nearly 10%, with firms such as Haier, Midea, Hisense

and Galanz each making sales of over USD100 million.

These figures aptly illustrate the rising core competitiveness of Chinese

appliances. Hisense, for example, has now taken out over 170 patents for its

innovative smart televisions.

Hisense is typical of the many Chinese companies exhibiting at Canton Fair who

are now focused on developing a new competitive edge in the international arena

through enhanced innovation, branding, quality, service and environmental


The Canton Fair's International Pavilion also proved a big success, attracting

over 90,000 visits by November 3. Boasting over 600 companies from 40

countries, the International Pavilion saw its number and diversity of

exhibitors significantly up on previous events. There were many famous

international brands in attendance, while leading Chinese companies such as

Suning and Vanguard sourced products here.

There were also encouraging signs for China's "Belt and Road Initiative" at the

Fair. The number of buyers from the South Asian Association bloc, Saudi Arabia

and Vietnam all increased, while Thailand (nearly 400%), Sri Lanka (103%),

Serbia (97%), Hungary (44%) and Jordan (38%) all boosted their purchasing

volumes significantly.
