About 1,500 Chinese companies will be scouting for deals during the second phase of the China Trade Week exhibition taking place in Nairobi between today June 18 and June 20.
The trade fair, which is in its fourth consecutive year in Kenya, is looking to connect distributors, manufacturers, exporters and retailers in Kenya with their counterparts in China.
The first phase of the conference which came to a close last week was attended by about 3,000 visitors, the organisers said, an indication that it was very successful.
“The second phase of China Trade Week expo 2018 will be starting today June 18 all the way to June 20. The show will be open to the public from 9am to 4pm featuring exhibitors of agricultural and electrical appliances maily from China,” said the exhibition’s events organizer Sian Xiao.
The China Trade Week was inspired by China’s ambitious development plan dubbed One Belt One Road.
It started in 2013 at the United Arabs Emirates and has spread to other countries including Ghana, South Africa, Iran and Morocco.
