Also present at the opening were H.E. Li Lingbing, Consul General of the People’s Republic of China in Dubai and Xiaoming Liu, Director of Hangzhou Municipal Commission of Commerce.
China Homelife Dubai exhibition has been specially developed to ensure that high quality products are available along with an opportunity to meet the Chinese manufacturers directly. Besides, there will be over 100,000 products all under a single sourcing umbrella. The year on year increasing visitors from across the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman and Lebanon is also evidence of the growing demand and higher trade between China and the MENA region.
“As a part of a global trade show, China Homelife Dubai aims to meet the requirements of a very large section of business across several sectors and is focused on strengthening trade prospects between China and the MENA region. The trust that we have instilled over the years are paying rich dividends and we have seen a marked increase of over 45% in exhibitor participation this year. On the other hand, our experience and understanding of the region has raised the value that we bring to our visitors who are looking for high quality products,” said Binu Pillai, Chief Operating Officer, MEOrient International Exhibition.
“The Middle East has been a growing market for us and as a participant at China Homelife Dubai Exhibition for over 5 years, we have witnessed a tremendous growth in building our business in the region. As organizers, MEOrient International Exhibition have been extremely aware of our needs and created a perfect blend of amenities and services to ensure that we are in touch with the right visitors, as well as ease our communication challenges with translators. We hope to receive the same positive response in 2017 as we had had in earlier years,” said Zhang Jianjun, General Manager, Shanghai Zhangzhao Import & Exports.
Over 15,000 exhibitors are expected to visit the exhibition which is supported by the Consulate General of the People’s Republic of China in Dubai and continues to build the trade relations between the Middle East and China.
