BEIJING: The third China International Import Expo (CIIE) is going on in Shanghai in China. This time due to the coronavirus, some Thai companies, who had come to Shanghai and attended the expo in the last two years, contacted Chinese traders through online platforms. Thai companies believe that this import expo will help foreign companies to emerge from the damage caused by the corona epidemic and boost global trade recovery.
Titima Ananseringkaran, manager of a Thailand craft company, said that China had a huge market, so the company attended the first import expo. During this he got his customers and at other import expos these customers placed orders directly with him. China’s market demand is large and purchasing power is also strong. Although she could not come to Shanghai this time due to Coronavirus, but she also participated in this import expo through an online platform.
Titima Ananseringkaran said that now the global economic slowdown is taking place. In many countries, trade activity has stalled due to coronavirus. But only China is still opening its doors and welcoming customers from all over the world. The import expo will be able to provide assistance to foreign companies caught in trouble.
