1 February

More than 70 Belarusian organizations and enterprises took part in the presentation of the First Chinese international exhibition of imported goods and services China International Import Expo (“Import EXPO”) that was organized in the capital of Belarus.

The delegation of the Ministry of Commerce of the People’s Republic of China headed by the Deputy Director of the Department of Eurasian Affairs Mr. Wang Kai Xuan and the representatives of the organizers led by the Deputy Head of China International Exhibitions Bureau Ms. Zhong Xiaoming visited Minsk to inform Belarusian partners on the exhibition.

In his welcoming speech the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the People's Republic of China to Belarus Cui Qiming said that the volume of mutual trade between two countries had increased almost 100 times for 25 years. “In 2017, trade turnover between China and Belarus amounted $1.3 billion. Import from China was $850 million, which is 13.8% of the total import volume of Belarus. Belarusian export to China was $490 million”, the Ambassador said.

He emphasized that the previous year the bilateral trade had become more balanced but China’s surplus was still large. “Belarus has developed agriculture, industrial potential and great scientific and technological capacity. I suppose that our joint efforts, including those opportunities that Import EXPO opens for us, will ensure that more and more Belarusian high-quality goods will be exported to China”, Cui Qiming concluded.

The National Centre for Marketing and Price Study of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Belarus will be the organizer of the National exposition of the Republic of Belarus in the framework of Import EXPO.

Addressing the potential participants of the exhibition, the Director of the Centre Valery Sadokho drew attention to some peculiarities of its organization. “Its specificity lies in the fact that all its participants will be divided by thematic areas. In particular, intellectual and high-tech equipment, household appliances, goods of mass consumption, automotive products, agricultural products and foodstuffs, medical goods and services will be presented on specialized platforms. In other words, visitors will be specifically searching for goods and partners that are potentially interesting for them”, he said.

As a result of the negotiations, the Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the organizers of the First China International Import Expo in Shanghai and the operator from the Belarusian side – the National Centre for Marketing and Price Study. According to the document, the National Centre for Marketing and Price Study will be delegated the authority to organize participation of the Republic of Belarus in the above-mentioned exhibition.

Import EXPO will be held on November 5–10, 2018 in Shanghai and will become a large-scale event in which all countries of the world will be able to participate.
