Huang Ying, deputy head of the Guizhou Provincial Department of Commerce, said at the fair's launch ceremony on Friday that the fair is a good opportunity to showcase Guizhou's homemade products and brands, and is important to promote stable development for international trade in Guizhou.
Ran Bin, vice-mayor of Guiyang, said on Friday that the fair is an important move to battle the impact of the coronavirus on the city's economy and further promote high-quality development.
Ran said Guiyang will step up efforts to promote integrated development of international trade with middle- to high-end consumption.
