VIL­NIUS: The sec­ond China In­ter­na­tional Im­port Expo (CIIE), which kicked off in Shang­hai Tues­day, shows that China is truly open to im­ports, said a Lithua­nian busi­ness of­fi­cial on Wed­nes­day.

"This ex­hi­bi­tion, which was first or­ga­nized in China last year, showed that the coun­try is truly open to im­ports, qual­ity goods from Europe re­ceive a lot of at­ten­tion and Chi­nese en­trepreneur­s are in­ter­ested in long-term part­ner­ships," said Daina Kle­pone, the man­ag­ing di­rec­tor at En­ter­prise Lithua­nia, ac­cord­ing.

En­ter­prise Lithua­nia is an or­ga­ni­za­tion un­der the Lithua­nian Min­istry of

Econ­omy aim­ing to pro­mote en­trepreneur­ship, sup­port busi­ness de­vel­op­ment and fos­ter ex­ports.

"China is tak­ing ac­tive steps to pro­mote the coun­try's trade with the rest of the world, and this ex­hi­bi­tion is one of the main means of pro­mot­ing the coun­try's im­ports and ex­ports, with a great deal of at­ten­tion paid to and a lot of re­sources de­voted to it," said Kle­pone, who sent in De­cem­ber 2017 a let­ter of in­tent to par­tic­i­pate in the CIIE on be­half of the Lithua­nian gov­ern­ment.

She also com­mended the first edi­tion of CIIE for of­fer­ing Lithua­nian com­pa­nies a lot of use­ful in­for­ma­tion about how to en­ter the Chi­nese mar­ket.

"A sig­nif­i­cant num­ber of com­pa­nies from other coun­tries are par­tic­i­pat­ing in this ex­hi­bi­tion for the first time. In this re­spect, Lithua­nian com­pa­nies are in an ad­van­ta­geous po­si­tion since they are not new­com­ers, and strate­gi­cally ap­pre­ci­ate op­por­tu­ni­ties to en­ter the Chi­nese mar­ket," she said in the re­lease.

At two na­tional stands of Lithua­nia with an area of 190 square me­ters at the expo, 16 Lithua­nian com­pa­nies will show­case food and bev­er­ages, am­ber ac­ces­sories, chic bags and linen bed­ding, among oth­ers, ac­cord­ing to En­ter­prise Lithua­nia.
