Canton Fair is a comprehensive international trading event with the longest history, biggest scale, most complete variety of exhibits, and the largest business turnover in China. With this year being the centenary of the Communist Party of China, the 130th Canton Fair is of great significance.

From a social and economic development perspective, the Fair will serve to bolster the new national development pattern which sees domestic economic circulation as the mainstay while both domestic and international economic circulations simultaneously reinforce each other.
Chinese and international companies are welcome to visit the grand event that is the 130th Canton Fair and together everyone can help to create a better future.
