China Import and Export Fair normally refers to Guangzhou Fair. The English name is Canton Fair. It was founded in the spring of 1957.
It is held twice yearly in spring and autumn. The Fair has become the most comprehensive international trading event in China for its longest history, highest level, largest scale, most comprehensive goods and largest merchant attendance. Since the 101st session in April 2007, it is renamed from Chinese Export Commodities Fair to China Import and Export Fair. After that, it turns to a two-way trading platform both in import and export rather than a single export platform.
