A CHINESE trade promotion group will hold an industrial expo in Manila next month featuring machinery and electronics products to mark 40 years of diplomatic relations between China and the Philippines.
The China Machinery and Electronic Products Exhibition, already on its 12th year here in the Philippines, will be held on August 20 to 22 at the SMX Convention Center Manila, SM Mall of Asia Complex.
The event is organized by the China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Machinery and Electronic Products (CCCME), one of the largest trade promotion organizations in China and is considered one of the best attended sourcing shows in the country with over 18,000 visiting the event each year.
CCCME is an organization composed of 8,000 member companies specializing in manufacturing and electronics.
“Over these years, the holding of the show has successfully provided a platform between Chinese enterprises and their Philippine counterparts. We strongly wish to join hands with more Philippine and international partners in the economic and trade area to communicate and to promote trade cooperation,” CCME president Zhang Yujing said in a statement.
China recently announced that its trade with the Philippines grew 560 times since diplomatic relations started between the two countries in 1975.
With over 200 exhibiting companies, this year’s expo is set to feature products and equipment from industry sectors such as household appliances, electronic consumer products, electricity, new energy, lighting, automobile, motorcycle, pro audio, building and construction, agricultural machinery, food processing, and packaging.
The Philippine Center for Print Excellence Foundation, Inc. (PCPEF), one of the show’s local supporting organizations, said that the expo not only allows local buyers to get a hold of high-quality product offerings from China but also serves to strengthen trade ties between the two countries.
“We in the Philippine Center for Print Excellence Foundation (PCPEF) support this initiative of bringing in a number of opportunities for further investments and developments in the country,” said Bert Calaquian, president of PCPEF.
“May this event be fruitful in all aspects and be a medium to revive the bond between China and the Philippines. We hope to see more s hows like this that helps increase the country’s economic state and its relationship with different countries across the globe,” Calaquian said.
