The Canton Import and Export Fair is the largest trade fair in China. It has been running since 1957 and is held twice a year. For many years the Canton Fair has been an important destination for foreign companies interested in importing products from China and in more recent years it has also added a category for foreign exporters. The NZCTA has a long history with the Canton Fair dating back to when one of NZCTA’s founding members (and past Chairman) Vic Percival, or Pan Xi Fu (Western Budda) as the Chinese named him, was amongst the first “foreigners” to attend the very first Canton Trade Fair in 1957. Vic was the only “foreigner” attending that first fair still alive to attend the 100th Canton Fair in October 2006.
This is a free event.
