A keynote speech emphasizing China’s position as the world’s second-largest import market was delivered by Jin Yuan, Economic and Commercial Counselor at the Chinese Embassy to the Netherlands.
According to him, China’s import volume, reaching 2.7 trillion U.S. dollars in 2022, showed the country’s immense market potential.
He added that an excellent platform for large and small Dutch enterprises to showcase and promote their products was provided by the CIIE, the world’s first import expo held at a national level.
An active role in the expo should be taken by Dutch businesses. Jin called them to explore potential collaborations with their Chinese counterparts and reap the significant benefits of the Chinese market.
According to Shi Huangjun, vice president of the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai), Dutch companies have always been important players at the CIIE due to their enthusiastic participation and considerable benefits they have achieved.
Not only large multinational corporations but also a multitude of innovative and potentially high-growth small- and medium-sized enterprises from the Netherlands were attracted by the expo.
A screening of a promotional video for the sixth CIIE was included in the event. Information on the expo’s preparations and detailed insights were shared by organizers into the exhibition areas. Various inquiries raised by Dutch representatives were also addressed by them.
