Chinese province holds consumer product expo in Singapore


18:32, November 23, 2011

SINGAPORE, Nov. 23 (Xinhua) -- China's southeastern province of Fujian held a consumer product expo in Singapore on Wednesday in a bid to explore the southeast Asian markets.

About 350 exhibitiors from Fujian took part in the fair to sell products such as clothes, sportswear, shoes, food and electric- powered consumer products. Combined with the Asia Expo-Singapore with gathers sellers from different countries and regions in East Asia, it boosts a total exhibition area of more than 13,000 square meters with about 600 exhibitors at the Marina Bay Sands Convention and Exhibition Center.

The show is one of the few large fairs selling Chinese products only. Fujian is one of the first coastal provinces in China to pen up to the outside world and now one of the most developed provinces.

Ruan Weixing, general manager of an exhibition firm co- organizing the event, said the firm and its Hong Kong-based cooperation partner invited thousands of buyers from southeast Asian countries and regions.

Wang Qiang, a trade official from the provincial government of Fujian, said it put together the exhibition in Singapore for companies from Fujian to explore the emerging markets in Southeast Asia, which have been increasingly important as the developed market demand remained weak.
