Pakistan-China trade fairs move online amid COVID-19


BEIJING, May 11 (DNA) – Pakistan-China trade fairs are moving online as the COVID-19 pandemic adversely impacted the events industry, reports Gwadar Pro.

The traditionally face-to-face communication has shifted to a screen-to-screen one.

As per the Department of Commerce of Zhejiang Province, China, an online 2020 Zhejiang Export Commodity Online Fair for Pakistan (Hardware & Electromechanical Products) is to be held from May 12 to May 16.

The event organizer Zhejiang Samexpo Exhibition Company told Gwadar Pro, the events industry has taken a massive hit as businesses continue to withdraw from planned events, so an online fair could provide bilateral trade opportunities for Pakistan and China’s enterprises through an accurate match and online negotiation.

Recently, an online investment promotion meeting for foreign investment projects was successfully held in Heilongjiang, China.

More than 30 well-known enterprises from Pakistan, Greece, Germany, Britain, the United States and other countries have been invited to participate in the remote trade fair with Chinese merchants from different cities of Heilongjiang Province.

The industries related to the online meeting included biomedicine, equipment manufacturing, graphite, cultural tourism and agriculture.

On April 28, twenty-eight Pakistani enterprises involved in electro-mechanical, hardware, building materials, and epidemic prevention materials, etc. have been invited to participate in China’s Shandong Export Commodities (Pakistan) Cloud Exhibition.

By “one-on-one” negotiations through precise matching, 124 meetings have been held between both sides, indicating fruitful results.
