The China International Import Expo (CIIE) has become an effective platform for launching new products, as exhibitors say it brings them exposure and many opportunities for deals.

A Nantong-based health science company made its debut at the second CIIE held in Shanghai from Nov 5 to 10. It signed more than 10 cooperation agreements with buyers.

Chen Xianming, founder of SunSky GreenValley Health Science Co, said that his company mainly develops multifunctional stem cell products, anti-aging techniques, and immunoregulatory products.

As a Canadian Chinese, Chen hopes to introduce more Canadian health products to China through the Nantong Free Trade Zone.

The expo has also provided a great opportunity for learning, said Wang Peng, a doctor at the Affiliated Hospital of Nantong University, during his visit to the expo as part of a Nantong delegation.

Wang said the purpose of the trip was to learn about cutting-edge medical technology.

"The world's most advanced technology and equipment are here, offering a lot of inspiration for domestic medical workers like me," he added.

This is the first time that Nantong has sent a medical team to visit the CIIE. 

The city has made the biomedicine industry a key part of its "3+3+N" industrial system. The total output value of biomedicine companies in the city above the designated size – those with annual revenue of 20 million yuan ($2.86 million) or higher – topped 45 billion yuan in 2018.
