(Yicai Global) August 6 -- The second China International Import Expo has held the first roadshow in northeastern China to spark interest in the upcoming nationwide trade fair to be held in Shanghai in November.
The ninth roadshow, which took place in Changchun in Jilin province, is likely to attract buyers from the automotive and medical equipment sectors, the CIIE bureau told Yicai Global. Jilin has established a provincial trading group and 20 subgroups ahead of the second CIIE to hold promotional events to enhance economic development and boost imports.
Rich in resources, northeastern China is home to many enterprises in the fields of petroleum, electricity and automobiles, said Sun Chenghai, deputy director of the CIIE bureau. Jilin's industrial base is undergoing a comprehensive transformation and it will benefit from the second CIIE, Sun added.
The CIIE will contain areas for advanced technologies such as those related to new energy vehicles and autonomous driving. The medical equipment area will have a big group of international firms, including Bayer, Johnson & Johnson, Siemens Healthineers, and Philips.
