At present, UnionPay cards have been accepted in 180 countries and regions and issued locally in 70 countries and regions. These cards can be used in almost all merchants in China, and serve as a two-way service for domestic and foreign personnel and economic and trade exchanges.

UnionPay cards brought convenience to exhibitors from all over the world participating in the CIIE. For instance, more than 370 companies from Hong Kong and Macao administrative special regions and Taiwan province participate in the exhibition. A large number of Hong Kong and Macao businessmen attended the fair and each already holds four UnionPay cards on average.

Congo (Brazzaville), Mauritius and other countries that participated in the exhibition for the first time have all issued UnionPay cards.

These wallets comply with UnionPay standards and support "cross-border usage". Exhibitors only need to download these wallets and bind a locally issued UnionPay card, and then they can complete the payment just like Chinese residents.
