Nantong delegation visits CIIE
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.
