CW participated on the 2nd edition of the China International Import Expo (CIIE) 2019
From 4 to 8 November 2019, several Latin Department colleagues traveled to Shanghai to attend the 2nd China International Import Expo (CIIE). David Barriga, our overseas consultant for South America, also attended the CIIE as part of a Colombian business delegation. This was the first time Colombia has an official booth in the CIIE. Other countries that participated in the 2nd edition included Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Costa Rica, El Salvador from Latin America and Spain and Portugal from Europe.
During the CIIE, Gabriela Lenis and Raul Chan, our Latin Department business advisors, attended the “Economic and Trade Fair for China, Africa and Latin America Cooperation”, which had the objective of creating a platform for fostering the trade between the respective regions. Our team also visited various country pavilions and got in touch with companies which were interested in entering the Chinese market. In particular, among various industries, food and tourism occupied the largest expo areas which were our focus of visit.
