First charity fair to be held in Shenzhen


08:16, May 08, 2012

BEIJING, May 7 (Xinhua) -- A charity-themed expo is scheduled to run from July 12 to 14 in the south China metropolis of Shenzhen, Shenzhen Mayor Xu Qin announced at a press conference on Monday.

Titled "Development, Integration and Transparency," the fair aims to showcase the fruits of development of public good and philanthropy in China, as well as demonstrate China's resolution to boost transparency in its charity sector, which took a hit as scandals unfolded last year that brought the sector's credibility into question.

More than 400 public charity organizations, enterprises, institutions and provinces will send delegations to join the event, according to Xu.

The first charity fair will create a new exchange mode for public welfare resources, making it a national, comprehensive exchange platform for people from the charity sector, said Xu.

Striving to build itself into a "city of volunteers," Shenzhen currently has 350,000 registered volunteers and more than 4,000 social organizations.
