FCCISL leads 40-member mission to China


The Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Sri Lanka (FCCISL) is taking a 40-member Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) business visitor delegation to China.

The first group of 17 members left on April 15 to the 105th China Import Export Fair otherwise popularly known as the Canton Fair in Guangzhou, China. The second group of 23 members will leave Colombo to Shanghai on April 20 where they will be joined by the earlier group prior to proceeding to the City of Jiangyan in the Province of Jiangsu to attend the 2009 China International Mechanical and Electrical Hardware Exposition from April 21 to 23, the Federation said.

While the Canton Fair is a popular trade fair among many small businessmen, the 2009 China International Mechanical & Electrical Hardware Exposition which will be held at the largest hardware market i.e. China Hardware Center which serves as a platform for trading, technology and communication has become one of the most influential displays in the China National Fair for Mechanical and Electrical Hardware.

The Jiangsu Province Governor, City Mayor and Central Government economic officials who will be attending the opening ceremony of the Hardware Exposition on April 21 will receive the Sri Lanka business delegation, the statement added.
