Exhibitors from Taizhou in East China's Zhejiang province secured several deals on the first day of the 133rd China Import and Export Fair, which opened on April 15 in South China's Guangzhou city.
A total of 730 companies from Taizhou are attending the fair and showcasing nearly 10,000 kinds of products manufactured in the city.
Among them is Aima, which inked deals worth $13 million with purchasers from Brazil and South Korea on April 15. The e-bike manufacturer has debuted 17 kinds of electric motorcycles and e-bikes at the fair.
One newly developed motorcycle by the company has proven to be a big hit as two merchants from Brazil and South Korea have placed orders for 6,000 units.
Despite being a first-timer at the fair, Lishan Machinery, another company from Taizhou, secured sales contracts worth $100,000 with purchasers from Austria and Poland that same day. The producer of intelligent bench drills and numerical control drills has seen robust growth in recent years, with its annual output value growing from less than 5 million yuan ($727,962) in 2018 to over 20 million in 2022.
The China Import and Export Fair, also known as Canton Fair, is expected to attract buyers from over 220 countries and regions this year as it resumes all offline exhibitions for the first time after a three-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
