In 2013, Chinese President Xi Jinping set out the strategy of rebuilding the Silk Road Economic Belt and a 21st Century Maritime Silk Road known as the "The Belt and Road" initiative. The proposal caught the interest of the global community, and quickly gained the support of nations along the route. The initiative is a comprehensive framework for organizing multinational economic development and trade, which has inspired the creation of China Trade Week (CTW) was completely successful in many countries like UAE, Kenya, Iran etc.
After the great success of CTW in Kenya, the China Trade Week was encouraged by the “Africa Union” to expand its exhibition scope. As a result, the China Trade Week South Africa will take place from 25th – 27th June at the Gallagher Convention Centre Johannesburg in South Africa, along with Saitex and Big Seven.
The event is a unique opportunity for the local business community to meet Chinese manufacturers and take advantage of the event’s high quality, competitively priced products And It will bring Middle East business people face-to-face with Chinese companies, creating a unique opportunity to meet, talk and develop the foundations of trading and business relationships.
