The second China International Import Expo (CIIE) that opened in Shanghai Tuesday is yet another proof that China means business in further bolstering opening up and globalization when protectionism and unilateralism threaten global growth.
In his keynote speech at the opening ceremony, Chinese President Xi Jinping called for resolute opposition to protectionism and unilateralism to jointly build a world economy of openness and cooperation.
He urged continuous efforts to expand and optimize opening up, improve business environment, deepen multilateral and bilateral cooperation, and jointly build the Belt and Road Initiative.
Compared with last year's CIIE, this year's event features greater participation and higher quality. It hosts nearly 4,000 companies from 155 countries and regions and is estimated to attract 500,000 buyers and visitors in total. The exhibition space area increased by 60,000 square meters to reach 360,000 square meters.
It is worth mentioning that 192 U.S. companies participated in the expo, an increase of 18 percent over last year. The floor space of U.S. exhibition area reached 47,500 square meters, taking up the largest exhibition area among all participating countries.
