Canton Fair: Decline, but Optimistic

发表时间:2009-08-21      发表评论



The Canton Fair, long regarded as an important weather vane for China’s foreign trade, this year faced bitter, cold winds. Trade volume of main export products such as machines and light industrial products all saw a decline, although the degree of decline differed in different sectors. The total trade volume in this Canton Fair dropped 16.9% below the previous one. 

Wen Zhongliang, Deputy Director-General of the Foreign Trade Dept, Ministry of Commerce and Director of the Business Office of the Canton Fair, commented: “the nearly 17% decrease rate was less than expected lessening the anticipated psychological blow. However, the exports for China still showed a downward tendency over the short term, and it is felt that the real improvement will appear in the fourth quarter.”
Many export-oriented companies had hoped to improve their business with orders from the Canton Fair, but the global financial crisis and the unfortunate coincidence of the international spread the H1N1 (swine) flu saw both the number of buyers and trading volume drop below expectations.
A modest decline was seen in the number of overseas buyers attending the fair. In this session, the number of overseas buyers from 209 countries and regions was 165436, 9126 less than that of last session, representing a decrease of 5.2%.
The top five countries and regions in this regard were Hong Kong SAR, USA, Taiwan Province, Malaysia and India, with the figures reaching 26863, 9035, 8612, 6422, and 5002 respectively. 57210 new buyers and 2169 international chain business attended this session.
The total export turnover of this session stood at USD 26.23 billion, USD 5.32 billion less than that of the previous session, representing a decrease of 16.9 %. Furthermore, the turnover of online transaction decreased. The visit to the Canton Fair’s websites accumulated to 190 million times, increased by 2.5%. The intended turnover of online transaction reached USD 510 million, decreased by 13.7%.

In terms of industries
The turnover of machinery and electronic products reached USD 11.26 billion, accounting for 42.9% of the total and decreased by 19.5% over the previous session. The turnover of light industry products achieved USD 8.37 billion, accounting for 31.9% and went down by 15.3%; Moreover, the turnover of textiles and garments reached USD 3.23 billion, with a decrease of 11.7% and accounting for 12.3% of the total.
The turnover of household electrical appliances reached USD 4.77 billion, 11.7% down; the turnover of hardware reached USD 2.13 billion, 28.3% down; the turnover of clothes and accessories was USD1.62 billion, 15.2% down; the turnover of articles for daily use was USD 980 million, down by 2.4%. While the turnover of food and footwear reversed this downward trend and stood at USD 410 million and USD 550 million respectively, up by 3% and 1.9%, respectively. Spurred by rocketing market demand, medical devices and disposables witnessed a rise in the turnover, with USD 220 million representing an increase of 34.7%.

In terms of regions
The turnover of EU, the Middle East and US still remained the Top 3, with USD 7.57 billion, USD 4.08 billion and USD 3.3 billion, decreased by 28%, 4.7% and 8.1% compared to the previous session, accounting for 28.8%, 15.5% and 12.6% of the total respectively. Some of the emerging market saw another picture. Argentina, India and ASEAN have achieved the turnover of USD 380 million, USD 770 million and USD 1.93 billion, representing increases of 10.2%, 6.2% and 7.1% respectively.

What’s more
This session has received 581 complaints concerning infringement of IPR. 748 enterprises were complained, and 446 enterprises were confirmed to be suspected of infringement of IPR. No complaints were found in the International Pavilion The number of complaints from the National Pavilion, enterprises being complained, and enterprises being confirmed to be suspected of infringement of IPR decreased by 9.4%, 17.5%, and 10.4% respectively.
In this session, five inspection groups were organized to oversee the usage of stands with strict enforcement, contributing to the maintenance of trading order and a desired effect.
During this Canton Fair, special match-making conference for redirection of exports to the domestic market was first ever held. In order to respond the financial crisis effectively, the Ministry of Commerce held match-making conferences for redirection of exports to the domestic demand in the second and the third phase of the Fair respectively which were the first-ever held activities open to domestic buyers in fifty-three-year. This is of special significance to promoting the redirection of exports to the domestic demand by this new attempt through the Fair. We’ll further explore better ways for more match-making based on this successful experience.
As referring to the 106th Canton Fair, approved by the Ministry of Commerce, the duration will be adjusted from 23 days to 21 days. And the time span for stand dismantling and construction is going to be shortened from four days to three days while the exhibiting time of five days in each phase remains unchanged. Following the new regulation, the schedule of the coming session will be from Oct 15 to 19 for Phase I, from Oct 23 to 27 for Phase II, from Oct 31 to Nov.4 for Phase Ⅲ, with two intervals from Oct 20 to 22 and from Oct 28 to 30.
