Guangdong Might Find It Easier to Enjoy Quality Imported Goods
Might you find it appealing to enjoy a glass of New Zealand milk in the morning, take a creamy and smooth cup of Brazilian coffee at noon and have a sip of mellow Japanese saki at the midnight hour? That vision may become a distinct possibility for residents of Guangdong next year.

"Based on its advantages in import and export, Guangzhou is stepping ahead on cross-border e-commerce,” Qiu Zhaoxian, vice president of CCIPT Guangdong, said Thursday during a press conference previewing the 2017 International Cross-border E-commerce Expo & International Cross-border E-commerce Forum (ICEE/ICEF). The 2017 ICEE/ICEF expo will be held in the Poly World Trade Center Expo next July 21-23.
ICEE/ICEF has achieved great success this year, and the event has become China's largest and finest expo for cross-border e-commerce.
"As the organizer of the 2017 ICEE, CCIPT Guangdong will dedicate to open up more investment channels for importing high-quality goods from all over the world,” Qiu said. “In addition, the CCIPT Guangdong will keep pushing forward the exhibition tours nationwide and worldwide under [China’s] 'Belt and Road' Strategy.’”
Bai Mingshao, president of Guangzhou’s cross-border e-commerce industry association, said the 2017 ICEE/ICEF will introduce first-hand goods of high quality from six continents, most of which are still scarce on the domestic market. Over half of the exhibitors are from developed countries and nearly 300 Japanese enterprises will participate in the exhibition. Moreover, the 2017 expo will add a special pavilion for VR (virtual reality), AR (augmented reality) and other cutting-edge high-tech concepts. The expo also will try to extend cross-border e-commerce to interior cities of China, which have lagged behind the tier-one cities in the East.
"We will also compile a research paper on China's cross-border e-commerce industry to lay the foundation for Guangzhou's role as a rule-maker in this industry,” Bai told Newsgd.com.
