The 113th China Import and Export Fair, also known as the Canton Fair, will take place in Guangzhou, capital of South China's Guangdong province, from April 15 to May 5.
A total of 198 Dalian enterprises will present their products at the Canton Fair, the fair's promotion conference announced in Dalian several days ago.
The Canton Fair is held in spring and autumn every year in Guangzhou.
With an exhibition area of 1.16 million square meters and over 59,000 booths, each fair has an export exhibition area and an import exhibition area, attracting more than 25,000 enterprises and 200,000 overseas buyers. Exports usually total over $30 billion at each fair, according to Dalian Daily.
The Canton Fair has always been an important channel connecting local enterprises and the international market. Among the 198 local participating enterprises, light industry products, including glass handicrafts and Christmas decorations, account for the largest proportion.
