China hosted the first ever China International Import Expo (CIIE) in Shanghai, Nov 5th – 10th, 2018. The official result from that event was significant, with the value of intended deals topping over $57.8 billion, and total of 3,617 companies from 151 countries and regions showcased their products in the business exhibition at the expo, according to the CIIE Bureau. Pacific Technologies Consulting Group (PTCG) has helped Washington State Department of Commerce organized small and medium businesses to exhibit at this expo. So, what was the experience from the eyes of a small business exhibitor? Please listen to my interview with Bradlee Williams, the founder of EEG, an agricultural and energy commodity wholesaler, about what we have experienced at CIIE, and the impact we think it will bring to our businesses.
