the 110th Session of the Canton Fair

China and the US are both adjusting economic growth models. The US is trying to reduce trade deficit, and China, while maintaining a steady growth of export, is placing more importance to expanding import, in the hope that import may play a greater role in addressing macro-economic balance and in restructuring.

In the beginning of this year, Chinese President Hu Jintao paid a successful visit to the US. The two Presidents reached a consensus on establishing a cooperative partnership of mutual respect and mutual benefit. They also decided to support the exchanges and cooperation at sub-national levels.

To follow the consensus reached by the leaders of the two countries, strengthen trade and economic cooperation between Chinese provinces and the US states, and expand China’s import from the US, China’s Ministry of Commerce decided to set up a USA Pavilion in the International Pavilion of the 110th Session of the China Import and Export Fair (a.k.a. the Canton Fair) Phase One, from October 15th – 19th, 2011. The Pavilion will offer a platform for US businesses to exhibit their products. Official delegations from the US states and cities will also be invited.
