The first China International Supply Chain Expo will be held in Beijing from November 28 to December 2. According to China, the exhibition will provide an international platform for advancing orderly and efficient industrial synergy across countries. Approximately 100 enterprises have signed up for the event to date, with confirmed US companies forming the largest group among foreign multinationals.
The expo is themed “connecting the world for a shared future,” and will feature five major supply chains, including smart vehicles, green agriculture, clean energy, digital technology, and healthy living. The expo is expected to attract over 300 companies, with international exhibitors making up 30 percent of the total. Attendees are estimated to surpass 100,000, with international buyers from over 50 countries and regions accounting for 40 percent of those in attendance.
A number of CEOs from leading overseas multinationals have been paying visits to China, such as Tesla’s founder Elon Musk and JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon. Reuters also reported that LVHM chief Bernard Arnault is set to visit China this month. Chinese officials have firmly opposed any so-called “decoupling” moves and will continue guaranteeing smooth supply chains.
