China Sourcing Fairs opens in Dubai


China Sourcing Fairs are exclusively for importers, traders, and volume buyers

Global Sources opened opened its 6th annual China Sourcing Fairs in Dubai today to help boost trade between China and the Middle East-North Africa (MENA) region. The events will run May 29-31, 2012, at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre. Featuring seven halls of suppliers, the Fairs are:

  • China Sourcing Fair: Baby & Children’s Products
  • China Sourcing Fair: Electronics
  • China Sourcing Fair: Garments & Textiles
  • China Sourcing Fair: Gifts & Premiums
  • China Sourcing Fair: Hardware & Building Materials
  • China Sourcing Fair: Home Products

“China is already the region’s second-largest trading partner, with trade from Qatar, Bahrain and Egypt expected to grow by 14 percent annually over the next five years,” said Tommy Wong, President of Global Sources Exhibitions. “By bringing quality China suppliers right here to Dubai — the region’s largest re-export market and gateway for trade — we are facilitating profitable trading opportunities between local buyers and China suppliers.”

China, UAE Government, and organizations lend strong support to events

Highlighting China’s support for building trade ties with the MENA region, the provincial and municipal governments and other organizations sponsoring pavilions this year include Fujian, Hebei, Hunan, Jiangxi, Tianjin, Dalian, Yiwu, and the China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Machinery and Electronic Products (CCCME). The Fairs are endorsed by the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

The China Sourcing Fairs are exclusively for importers, traders, and other volume buyers who purchase consumer products for resale to markets throughout the MENA region. Last year, 10,038 qualified buyers from over 80 countries attended the event.
