More countries will open trade pavilions in FTZ

The CEEC Commodity Center in Shanghai Free Trade Zone will add the Czech Pavilion in September and the Slovenia Pavilion in November, according to FTZ officials.

Currently, eight of the 16 Central and Eastern European countries have opened their national pavilions in cooperation with the center developer, according to Shanghai Waigaoqiao Group.

Australia opened the first exhibition and trading center in the free trade zone in 2014 with an agreement between the Chinese and Australian governments. The center is now a comprehensive trade and investment platform for companies in both countries.

Recently, it helped Chinese companies to build nursing homes and invest in dairy farms in Australia.

The Hungarian Pavilion, opened in June, is displaying consumer products and services as well as Hungarian arts and crafts and technologies. It plans to offer investment, immigration, education and tourism services.
