104th China Export Commodities Fair (hereinafter referred to as Canton Fair) will be held on October 15, the Ministry of Foreign Trade who is responsible for the recent reform of the Guangzhou Trade Fair on the issue answered a reporter's question.



A: Since its inception in 1957, the Canton Fair in the interest of the CPC Central Committee and State Council, throughout the country, especially in Guangdong Province, Guangzhou City, with the strong support of the people through the joint efforts of several generations of foreign trade, has become China's largest commodities Most species-wide, to be the largest business turnover was the most effective and comprehensive international trade event. In 2008 the first session of the Canton Fair 103 enterprises reached 18,000 exhibitors, exhibitors of goods amounted to hundreds of thousands of species to be nearly 20 million customers, export turnover 37,200,000,000 U.S. dollars. Canton Fair to promote the development of China's foreign trade has played a unique and important role.

In 1974 before undergoing a second relocation of the Canton Fair. 1957 1st in Guangzhou, Sino-Soviet Friendship Building, founded in 1958 3rd to the 5th session of the 1959 Chinese export commodities in the gallery organized, 1959 6th until 1974, the 34th held in Haizhu Square Pavilion . In 1974 the 35th, moved to Canton Fair Liuhua Complex held construction area of 110,000 square meters, more than doubled Haizhu Square Pavilion. The relocation of these are participating as a result of goods and the increasing number of business people, less than the original exhibition space, the need to seek a bigger hall. During this period, China's foreign trade by professional foreign trade corporation monopolized by the Fair Trade Organization head professional foreign trade mission participation.

The early reform and opening up, China's foreign trade step by step development, gradually expand the channels to operate. Exports in 1978 from 97.5 billion dollars in 1990 to 621 billion U.S. dollars in foreign trade enterprises from 107 to 2070. Fair trade group units by the professional corporation to expand the country's ministries of Trade and Industry has set up the machinery and equipment, electronic transactions, such as corporations. At the same time, Liuhua through many layers increase, expansion and transformation, from the construction area of 110,000 square meters to 130,000 square meters of exhibition area has been expanded accordingly.

With the decentralization of foreign trade management, professional foreign trade companies and the local head office cut their ties soil food, textile, light industry, mechanical and electrical products, metals, minerals, medical insurance and so on the import and export of the six chambers of commerce have been established, the further development of foreign trade, foreign trade enterprises to further expand the ranks of . In 1993, exports amounted to 91,700,000,000 U.S. dollars, foreign trade enterprises, 5474. Guangzhou Trade Fair 1994 from the 76th starting group will show the system be changed to "provincial and municipal groups, chambers of commerce group Museum," At the same time, in accordance with international practice area set up sub-categories of commodities has greatly mobilized the local authorities and business operators (ASEAN) will participate Guangzhou Trade Fair initiative to facilitate the procurement and export business transactions. Since then, the overwhelming majority of enterprises to meet the needs of exhibitors, Trade Fair Hall Road, spent convection ongoing transformation potential, will have shopping malls, warehouses, office space and service establishments into the exhibition hall, booth size from 1994 to 4200 to 2000 7000.

So far in 2001, with China's accession to the World Trade Organization, foreign trade maintained rapid growth, the main foreign trade has grown from exports in 2001 of 266,100,000,000 U.S. dollars in 2007 to 1,200,000,000,000 U.S. dollars, foreign trade enterprises from 2001's 44,000 In 2007 to 370,000. The majority of small and medium enterprises through the Guangzhou Trade Fair to open up international markets increasingly strong desire, stand between supply and demand further. In the Liuhua Complex has been full potential, the Canton Fair in 2002 from the 91st, "one museum a" to "A House 2", an order for an industrial products, textiles and clothing Medicines and Health Products, for the second phase of daily consumer goods, gifts; the total number of booths to 15,700, equivalent to double the actual booth. With the Pazhou Complex Area A (Booth 7000), built in 2004 from the 95th, by the Guangzhou Trade Fair "House 2" to "two House 2", the total number of booths expanded to 27,500. 2008 Pazhou Complex Area B (Booth 6900) put into use, according to the Guangzhou Trade Fair to continue to "Hall 2" holding pattern, the total number of booths to reach 42,000.



A: In the Canton Fair has made great achievements in the development of the faces prominent contradictions and problems. Although the number of booths by the expansion, but the reality of 8-10 million compared to the demand, there are still large gaps between supply and demand has not yet been fundamentally alleviated. Due to the limited size of the booth, can not fully meet the needs of enterprises, the impact of the expansion of the ranks of exhibitors and optimization; Liuhua by the full potential, not only can not stand for the further expansion of space, but also left a security risk; on-site service levels and Incompatible with the scale of the exhibition, the exhibition can not meet the requirements of customers; booths around the interests and conflicts are relatively concentrated and difficult to balance the relationship between the parties, management needs to be raised.

In October 2008, Pazhou Complex will be completed and put into operation, covering over 800,000 square meters, construction area of more than 1,100,000 square meters, with a total exhibition area of 340,000 square meters, the total number of 18,000 booths, Liu Hua Road 11,000 increase in the exhibition hall, conditional to better meet the needs of enterprises. In the booth is to ease the contradiction of supply and demand, we can continue to play a "provincial and municipal groups, chambers of commerce group Museum," the organization's unique advantages on the basis of further straighten out the relationship between the specific functions and standardize management. At the same time, modern exhibition hall and first-class facilities, in favor of the establishment of a Trade Fair and Exhibition adapt to the modern demands of the management team to increase the exhibitors and buyers the ability and level of services to enhance the core competitiveness of the Canton Fair, Canton Fair to achieve better Faster development.
