200 exhibitors for China Africa showcase

About 200 exhibitors from China will convene at the second Brands of China African Showcase scheduled for next month in Dar es Salaam.

Economic and Commercial Representative of the People’s Republic of China in Tanzania Chen Xijin, addressing a press conference in Dar es Salaam, said that this year’s event would have 265 standard booths.

He said this year’s event is designed to meet African market needs through exhibition of machinery and vehicles, home appliances, electronic communications, solar energy and related products, consumer goods and building materials, chemical, medical and comprehensive products.

The African Showcase 2013 will bring together 197 exhibitors from 14 Chinese provinces and municipalities including those of the World Top 500. Mr Xijin said China is willing to strengthen cooperation with African countries, promote common prosperity and upgrade the China-Africa strategic partnership to a new level.

“As an important platform for economic and trade exchanges, African Showcase will play an active role in achieving common interests and win-win outcomes for China and Africa,” he said.

An official from the Tanzania Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture (TCCIA), Mr Adam Zuku said that last year’s event succeeded, noting that China-Tanzania relations were getting strong annually. Mr Zuku said to fight uncertainty, the council is in dialogue with a Tanzanian company in China and anyone wanting to buy goods and services can consult them.

In 2012 the trade volume between China and Tanzania reached 198.49 million US Dollars. China’s imports from Africa totaled 113.17 billion US dollars, 21.4 per cent higher than 2011’s. China has remained the largest trade partner of Africa for four consecutive years.

African Show in Tanzania is an initiative of Chinese Government to fight against counterfeit products and enable African people to enjoy cheap but good quality Chinese goods.

With the supports of related governmental departments and chambers both in China and Tanzania, African Showcase will become an important platform to upgrade China-made products in the local market and promote economic and trade cooperation between China and Tanzania.
