Sourcing Chinese products is always a challenge for Persian Gulf Companies!

Iran is getting ready  to welcome Chinese consumer product manufacturers that are to exhibit China Trade Week-Iran to be hosted at Shahr-e-Aftab Inernational Exhibtion Center, Iran,  22 - 24 September 2016.

Our Chinese exhibitors are looking forward to connecting and doing business with Iran and Persian Gulf retail business owners and import/export companies.  

Food and beverage, kitchenware, home ware, automotive parts and accessories, ceramics and glassware, office equipment and furniture are just parts of the categories that are on show at the 3-day exhibition.

Remarking on the event, Gary Robinson, Events Director of MIE Events JLT said: "Chinese companies have historically been perceived as high volume and low cost manufacturers of many types of products. This is simply no longer the case. Chinese manufacturers produce in a wide variety or prices and quality that suit any market requirement. Some of the highest quality products emanate from the far east.”

Robinson adds: "The key point is that it is extremely difficult to not only find manufactures in China but finding reliable ones and building a relationship with them is a challenge. We know that Middle East companies are keen to develop these trading ties with China. We have brought a good cross section of them now to the middle east.”

The Iran is a pivotal market within the Middle East and the gateway to over 1.3 billion potential consumers. The Middle East enjoys some of the highest per capita retail spend globally so it is understandable that retailers want to have the quality and volume of products to take advantage of this huge affluent market.

China was the Iran's largest trade partner and also the largest oil and non-oil products exportmarket in the past several years, with bilateral trade volume reached $ 51.85 billion in 2014 and 54.9 million barrelsof Iranian crude oil daily.
