China’s top tech fair expands foreign reach

The lingering global economic slump has failed to dampen the enthusiasm of foreign exhibitors seeking opportunities for partnerships with domestic companies at China’s biggest high-tech fair, which is being held in Shenzhen from Nov 16 to 21.

According to the organizers of the 14th China High-Tech Fair (CHTF), 28 delegations of exhibitors from 19 countries and regions have been organized to attend the fair, up 10 percent from one year ago.

In addition to frequent attendees from such countries as the United States, Germany, Russia, South Korea, Canada and Australia, there will be newcomers from Iran, New Zealand, India and Colombia, according to the organizers.

For the fifth year, Denmark has sent a delegation led by Henrik Brandt Jensen, Asia-Pacific regional director of Invest in Denmark, the nation’s official investment promotion organization.

“The fair is China’s largest and most influential exhibition on high technology. It’s the most important event, and we cannot afford to miss it,” Jensen said.
Every year the fair continues to impress him with increasing numbers of exhibitors, high-level delegations and experts.

“Shenzhen is one of the country’s most important hubs for technology. We have organized many seminars, ministerial visits and VIP dinners to maintain the best relationship between Denmark and Shenzhen,” he said.

The fair is China’s most important showcase for its latest domestically developed technologies and high-tech products. It has helped his delegation meet many key clients and provides more approaches to new and innovative companies, Jensen said.

“We would like to collaborate on high-level seminars where we can invite Danish ministerial-level officials and experts to promote the Danish foothold at the fair in the future,” he said.

The participation of so many heavyweight organizations demonstrates the importance of technology in the development of the country and the unparalleled position of the fair.
