Organised by MIE Events JLT, the 3-day event will showcase over 200 Chineseexhibitors who are looking to meet and do businesson a large-scale with sales agents or wholesalers/regional distributors. Investors will also be in attendance looking for opportunities to invest in the region. Exhibitorscome from a wide variety of industry sectors offering 1000's of productsincluding construction materials and machinery, clothing & home textiles,Chinese arts & crafts, power & energy, lighting, print & packaging equipment, home electrical & electronics, healthcare, sports& fitness, auto parts & accessories, and stone and ceramic products, toname just a few.
The show is the only China dedicated trade event hosted in Abu Dhabi.
The organisers have announced they have already secured support and are working closely with the Federation of UAE Chambers of Commerce & Industry and the UAE Ministry of Economy.
David Wang, Managing Director of MIE Events JLT explains the reasoning behind the event: "In 2013, China's President Xi Jinping outlined a new initiative called "One Belt, One Road" which is the catch phrase describing China's desire to re-establish the old Silk Road trading routes both over land and via sea through the Maritime route. The Middle East and in particular theUAE has a significant strategic importance in the success of China's "OneBelt, One Road" initiative, providing the largest and most developed import/export hub in the region. UAE is currently China's second largesttrading partner in the Gulf region and the largest in terms of buying Chineseproducts. It seems only logical that we at MIE Events JLT should host an eventthat will assist in growing these political, commercial and cultural ties evenfurther."
This announcement comes in the wake ofincreased trade activities between China and UAE, which continues to influencebilateral relations of the two countries. China Trade Week Middle East2015 will create stronger ties between Chinese exhibitors and regionalbusinesses looking to source products from China. In essence, bringing China toAbu Dhabi will provide many local and regional companies the best chance tosource the best quality products at the best prices from China, without theexpense of having to travel to there or suffer the inherent risks of sourcingthrough the internet.
A series of practical and highly informativeworkshops will take place during the event and are offered free to allthe visitors. Chinese and local speakers will provide the visiting businessprofessionals with the tools to make a better informed decision when it comes to sourcing and doing business with China.
