The 114th China Import and Export Fair, known as the Canton Fair, is in session. The semi-annual event attracts world-class buyers and exhibitors from across the globe.

More than 40,000 participants were there for Monday’s opening. Officials say the event focuses on enhancing the quality of exhibitions, and promoting green and low carbon development.

One highlight is a design award for exporting commodities.

The fair has three phases. The first one runs to Saturday. It focuses on Electronics, Household Electrical Appliances, Building Materials, and Machinery. The second phase starts in late October, and the third in early November.

Guangdong has hosted fair for more than half a half a century, since 1957.
