World’s first 'Supply China expo' concludes in Beijing

BEIJING, Dec. 3 (APP): The first China International Supply Chain Expo (CISCE) concluded in Beijing.
Themed “Connecting the World for a Shared Future,” the five-day expo resonates with China’s emphasis on the importance of stable industrial and supply chains.
It also aims to connect upstream, midstream, and downstream enterprises in the industrial chain, and to contribute to building a stable and smooth global supply chain.
“China is moving up the global value chains. Its technology can lead to a new wave of economic growth at home and abroad, benefiting both the country and the world,” Chris Pereira, CEO of iMpact said at the expo.
Wang Lei, AstraZeneca’s global Executive Vice President, also showcased deep experience, “In the past year, we have invested USD 1 billion in China to vigorously strengthened our supply chain system.
The results have been remarkable at this expo, especially in zero-carbon emission reduction. Facing numerous challenges, companies in different countries must never be decoupled from each other, but cooperate for win-win results.”
“CISCE brings unlimited opportunities, not only to China but also to all Arab countries. As we all know, we are each other’s indispensable trading partners,” Ahmed Shaaban Hassan, an Economic Researcher at the League of Arab States, told the China Economic Net.
“In order to become a more important link in the global supply chain system, the trade field between China and Arab states should expand further”, he added.
Except for traditional trade, China-Arab e-commerce cooperation also has great potential.
Big data, 5G, the Internet of Things, and artificial intelligence our cooperation should occupy an indispensable position in the global trading system. Besides, it’s a sincere hope that China will build more logistics hubs in Arab states to help them be more integrated in the Belt and Road framework,” the researcher added.
“China’s economy has become deeply integrated into global value chains.
Multinational companies first turned China into a global export platform before reaping the benefits of the sheer size of the market. This process of value chain splicing has allowed for the realization of efficiency gains from specialization,” Margit Molnar, head of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s China desk, emphasized.
Proactively opening its doors to the world, China has emerged as a primary trading partner with over 140 countries and regions, securing its position as the world’s second-largest importer for 14 consecutive years.
