Extra space for export fair
( 2003-08-23 10:51) (China Daily HK Edition)

Starting this fall, the Chinese Export Commodities Fair will set up a sub-exhibition hall in the newly-completed Guangzhou Pazhou International Convention and Exhibition Center in Guangzhou's Haizhu District.

Xu Bing, spokesman and deputy secretary general of the Chinese Export Commodities Fair, said the Pazhou sub-exhibition hall will help ease the great pressure for floor space and booths for the country's biggest trade event which is held twice a year in Guangzhou.

The 94th Session of the Chinese Export Commodities Fair will open on October 15 in both the traditional halls of the Chinese Export Commodities Fair in Guangzhou's Liuhualu of Yuexiu District and the exhibition halls of Pazhou International Convention and Exhibition Center.

There will be more than 18,000 standard booths (plus the Pazhou sub branch) for the autumn event, Xu said.

The fair, which is jointly organized by the Ministry of Commerce and the Guangdong provincial government, will last till the end of October.

And starting 2006, the fair - which was first held in Guangzhou in 1957 - will completely move to the new site, Xu added.

The new centre, which cost the Guangzhou municipal government more than 4 billion yuan (US$482 million), has a floor space of about 400,000 square metres.

Situated along the bank of Pearl River in the city proper, the centre - which covers an area of 10.5 square kilometres - is the largest in Asia and the second largest in the world.

The current exhibition halls have a floor space of only 170,000 square metres, failing to meeting the demand from the growing number of domestic traders.

The trade event accounts for more than 30 per cent of China's annual export volume.
