The Canton Fair will continue to facilitate export enterprises to explore the domestic market and broaden the sourcing channels for enterprises engaging in domestic trade in an appropriately adjusted manner. Instead of setting up the Domestic sourcing center, we will continue to put special signs on the stands of those exporting enterprises that are willing to sell products in domestic market so that domestic trading enterprises can come for on-site negotiations. Qualified domestic buyers can also have access to these exhibitors.
