The China International Import Expo (CIIE), among the foremost global import exhibitions, is currently underway in Shanghai, China.
Organized by Enterprise Georgia, almost 40 Georgian companies have been brought together in two spacious pavilions dedicated to the food and beverage sector, the textile industry and consumer goods. Visitors can sample Georgian wine, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, agricultural products, leather items, accessories, and apparel.
According to Mikheil Khidureli, CEO of Enterprise Georgia, participation in a major exhibition allows the agency's beneficiaries to forge crucial business connections with international companies.
In addition to the Georgian business pavilions, attendees will have the opportunity to explore Georgia's tourism and investment prospects at a dedicated pavilion. The national pavilion features informational desks from various government entities, such as Enterprise Georgia, the Georgian Innovation and Technology Agency, the National Tourism Administration, the National Wine Agency, the Mountain Trails Agency, and the Georgian Railways.
Otar Shamugia, Georgia's Minister of Environmental Protection and Agriculture, is leading the Georgian delegation at the China International Import Exhibition.
The CIIE, set to run until November 10, is anticipated to draw corporate and government delegations from over 160 different countries. The number of visitors to the exhibition is expected to reach 500,000 this year. With the support of Enterprise Georgia, Georgian businesses have been actively taking part in the exhibition since 2018.
