One of the biggest Chinese Trade Delegations to visit Australia, since the signing of the historic China Australia Free Trade Agreement (ChAFTA), is due to arrive in Sydney later this month. Nearly 100 participants, including government officials and private business owners, will take part in the visit.

The delegation will be officially welcomed by NSW Premier Mike Baird on the 25 May, before the opening of a two day trade expo at the Hordern Pavilion, Moore Park, Sydney. The Expo will feature more than 1,000 products and nearly 70 manufacturers from the city of Huizhou in China’s most prosperous province Guangdong.

Huizhou Products Expo coordinator, Cindy Xin of Ausfeng Events, says the free event is a great opportunity for Australian companies to learn more about dealing with China at a business-to-business level. Ms. Xin says, “The key to a successful business relationship in China is personal contact. There is no substitute for meeting face-to-face with your Chinese business partners and there is no greater guarantee in getting the best prices and the best service from suppliers. 

“The Huizhou Products Expo will feature some of the latest products and designs across a wide range of manufacturers, this gives Australian businesses a great opportunity to meet with potential suppliers and gain a great insight into doing business with China.”

Products on display include:

  • Consumer Electronics
  • LED Lighting and Video
  • Intelligent Vacuum Cleaners and Air Purifiers 
  • Sports and Leisure Products
  • Home and Kitchenware
  • Women’s Fashion
  • Children’s Fashion
  • Women’s Footwear
