The 4-day 28th East China Fair (hereinafter referred to as “ECF”) came to a successful conclusion on March 4 in Shanghai.

ECF, the first large-scale exhibition right after the Spring Festival in China, is quite eye-catching.

Co., Ltd., a foreign trade company of a long history, pays great attention to its self brand development. Home-Dollar takes 4 exhibition booths at this year’s ECF, and its products on display attract numerous professional visitors from South Korea and Japan. As a representative of Home-Dollar says, “We have exchanged business cards with numerous visitors and have agreed to cooperate with some of them”. For Home-Dollar, it is quite an opportunity to further explore markets in Japan and South Korea.
“ECF ,the largest regional trade fair organized in China which features traders from across the world, is a good chance for our exhibitors to strengthen industrial exchanges, to enhance their international fame, to win more orders and to contribute to the development of foreign trade”, a representative from Jiangbei Bureau of Commerce says. Most of the exhibitors from Jiangbei District aim at the markets in South Korea and Japan at the ECF. The bags and suitcases that are produced by Kaili Outdoor Products Manufacturing Co., Ltd. and pet supplies with Huihao Textile Co., Ltd. are quite favored and win a great number of orders from Japanese and South Korean buyers.
