Among these participants, some of them are new to the Asia Pacific market and are eager to look for local partners. While some have already established presences in the region for years and would like to further develop their market share.
During the two day trade show, more than 30 match-making meetings have been scheduled by the Trade Commissions, giving the French exhibiting companies the opportunity to meet public and private buyers and potential partners. Besides, the three Trade Commissions have received a delegation of Chinese enterprises led by Qingdao Commerce Bureau.
