Pakistan's full-spectrum participation includes a dedicated country pavilion, extra booths for enterprises and special trade and investment events to highlight opportunities for China and ASEAN countries in Pakistan.
The Pakistan pavilion displays major export and cultural items including sports goods, sportswear, garments, bed linens, spices and food items. Print and audio-visual material on tourist attractions of Pakistan will also be prominently showcased. In addition to the pavilion, Pakistani enterprises in China have set up a large number of stalls to promote their brands and products. They will take orders on the spot for products such as wooden, brass and stone handicrafts, onyx, gemstones, leather items and jewelry.
On the sidelines of the CAEXPO, Pakistan's Missions in Beijing and Guangzhou and Trade Development Authority of Pakistan have organized a special Trade and Investment Promotion Conference. The conference will highlight the potential of diversified trade with China and ASEAN and the opportunities of mutually beneficial investments, particularly in Special Economic Zones under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.
As a longstanding friend of China with close ties to ASEAN countries, Pakistan's first-time participation in the three-day CAEXPO will underscore the country's sustained efforts at regional economic integration and results-oriented cooperation, giving full play to the dynamism of our enterprises with high-level government support.
