China's ''One Belt, One Road'' initiative is a comprehensive frmaework for oragnizing multinational economic development and trade which has inspired the creation of China Trade Week (CTW).
Under the background of ''One Belt, One Road,'' MIE has already successfully held several high-quality Chinese goods exhibitions in the countries along the route.
Estbalished in 2013, China Trade Week had its frist event in the United Arab Emirates which was warmly welcomed by the local community. After a successful event in the UAE, it was followed by our first African event in Kenya which had an even bigger response.
In 2017, China Trade Week was launched in Ethiopia. During our first event, Almost 100 exhibitors from a wide range of industries participated the event to showcase their high-qulaity products from China. Sectors that covered the 2017 event included construction materials & machinery, smart electronics, clothing & textiles, lighting & energy, print, packaging & plastic, home interiors, health & beauty, kitchen & bathroom and agricultural machinery. We were delighted of how the local community welcomed our first event in Ethiopia.
China Trade Week series of events has always been successful that's why MIE Events decided to expand its scope. At present, CTW had been hosting in South Africa, Ghana and Morocco, having our 7 events in 2017 including Ethiopia, Kenya, the UAE and Iran with more than 5000 government institutions and enterprises participating the events.
