The 9th Western China International Economy and Trade Fair due on October 26, will provide enormous opportunities to Sri Lanka for promoting international trade and investment in China.

It will be for th first time that Sri Lanka would participate in the event. It was only recently that the Sri Lanka-China, Business Cooperation Council (SLBCC) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the China Business Council to promote international trade between two countries. It is believed that inking of the MoU has paved the way for domestic manufacturers and entrepreneurs to partake in the event.

In an exclusive interview with Fibre2fashion, Mr Nihal Aluvihare, SLBCC Secretary-General, asserted that “the three day annual trade fair is held in Sichuan province every year in month of May but this time due to earthquake, it had to be postponed to October 2008.”

He further added by saying that so far, about 11 companies have registered for participation and the figures are expected to rise by another 3 to 4. Most of these would be dealing with handicraft, coir products, bronzeware and gems and jewelry.

Moreover, opening ceremony of the trade fair on October 26 would be graced by the presence of Heads of different Countries, such as Prime Minister of Laos, Prime Minister of Sri Lanka, and senior ministers from Afghanistan, Singapore, Maldives, Malaysia, and Indonesia, just to name a few.

It has been said that the SLBCC would be organizing a major investment forum during the event, where a high-powered Sri Lankan delegation is expected to participate to help attract major Chinese investors to Sri Lanka.
