Organizers of the 110th Canton Fair held a promotion event in Vienna Monday, inviting Austrian businesses to the largest trade fair in China.

Also known as China Import and Export Fair, Canton Fair is not just a place to market Chinese products, but also a platform for the Chinese businesses to seek imports of goods, technology and services, said Ren Xiangdong, deputy director of China Foreign Trade Center.

Noting that Austria enjoys traditional strength in such fields as steel, machinery and food processing, he suggested that Austrian enterprises use the Canton Fair as a platform to not only purchase Chinese goods but seek cooperation opportunities with Chinese counterparts for a win-win outcome as well.

China has become Austria's biggest trading partner outside the European Union, and the two countries should fully explore their great complementary potential to boost their future development, he added.

Representatives of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber and some Austrian businesses attended the event, which was held at the Chinese embassy.

Initiated in 1957, Canton Fair is the largest of its kind in China. It is held twice a year in Guangzhou, capital of the southern Chinese province of Guangdong, under the auspices of the Chinese Commerce Ministry and the Guangdong provincial government.

The 110th Canton Fair is scheduled from mid-October to early November. Around 150,000 types of commodities from China and other countries were showcased in each of the previous 109 sessions.
