African Commodities Trade Pavilion (June 27-29)
An African Commodities Trade Pavilion will open at Gaoqiao Bazaar, Changsha between June 27 and 29, during the China-Africa Economic and Trade Expo. The pavilion displays unique and authentic African products and culture.
Gaoqiao Bazaar, a leading enterprise in Hunan, is active in building two-way trading for China-Africa import and export goods and is establishing the pavilion and a Hunan Export Industry Cluster. These new channels will facilitate win-win business relations between Hunan and African enterprises.
The African Commodity Trade Pavilion has a floor area of 2,000 square meters. High-quality African products such as Kenyan black tea, South African red wine, Ugandan oil paintings, and Senegalese agricultural products will be available. By 2021, 100 enterprises are expected to open stores with a total of 10,000 different products. They will enjoy free access or initial rent exemptions. Professional operation teams will hold activities to promote African culture and trade and to make it a display and distribution center for African products entering the Chinese market.
The Hunan Export Industry Cluster, located in Gaoqiao Bazaar Wine and Food Town, is under construction. It will have six stories with 24,000 square meters. It is home to an international trade service center, an export exhibition hall, and exhibition halls with the characteristics of Hunan cities and prefecture. It will be complete and open during June this year. There will be more than 2,000 Hunan manufacturers specializing in ceramics, bags, wigs, tea, providing one-stop procurement services for global buyers, including a trade agency, logistics, finance, insurance, qualification agency, translation, and customs declaration and inspection.
