(ECNS) -- The China International Import Expo (CIIE) is hosted by China for the benefit of the whole world, and its growing success witnesses China’s progress in opening-up and strengthens the world’s confidence and faith in pursuing a shared future, said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin on Monday.

Wang introduced that for the first time since COVID-19, all CIIE events are once again held physically.“A total of 289 Fortune 500 companies and industry leaders are participating, including 15 major global automobile brands, ten leading industrial electrical companies, ten major medical device companies, three mining giants, four major grains dealers, and five major shipping companies. The Business Exhibition area reached a new record level of 367,000 square meters,” he said.

Wang said that this CIIE also saw other ‘firsts’—the first delegation of American small and medium companies, the first designated area for African agricultural products and the first match-making event for small and medium enterprises, adding that many exhibitors said they hope to showcase their latest and best products and let more people see what their home countries could offer at the CIIE, which certainly demonstrates the expo’s ability to attract.

“As the world’s first national-level expo dedicated to import, the CIIE seeks to further connect China with the rest of the world. It is an increasingly important platform for international procurement, investment promotion, people-to-people and cultural exchange, and openness and cooperation. It is a showcase of China’s new development paradigm, a platform for high-standard opening up, and a public good for the whole world,” Wang commented.

He noted that the fact that more quality products from around the world have entered the Chinese market is a good news not only for the Chinese consumers, but also for the integration of Chinese and foreign goods, services and technologies. It also drives industrial upgrade and make life better in relevant countries and regions.

“Thanks to the CIIE, more and more foreign companies are able to access the vast Chinese market made available by China’s high-level opening-up, share in the huge dividends brought by China’s high-quality development, and see China’s readiness to share opportunities with the whole world,” he said.

The spokesperson stressed that openness, cooperation and win-win results is the smartest and most natural choice. “China will continue to advance opening-up featuring more market opportunities, better harmonization of rules, stronger innovation drive and greater inclusiveness,” Wang said.

“We are ready to work with all countries to foster, promote and contribute to an open world economy, and contribute more to world economic recovery and global development and prosperity,” he added.
