    Brief Introduction of the 17th China Harbin Fair

    The 17th China Harbin Fair for Trade and Economic Cooperation lowered its curtain in the capital city of Northeast China's Heilongjiang Province on June 19 with the number of contracts signed scoring a historic high.

    The five-day fair was jointly sponsored by the Ministry of Commerce, the State Council's office for the revitalization of traditional industrial bases in Northeast China and the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade as well as the governments of Heilongjiang, Zhejiang provinces and Harbin city.

    More than 11,947 foreign businesspeople from 85 countries and regions and some 110,000 domestic traders attended the event.

    At this fair, deals worth a total of US$8.83 billion were signed among businesses from 51 countries and regions, up 38.4 per cent from the previous event. The total value of deals reached among Chinese firms hit 94.09 billion yuan (US$11.8 billion).


    According to the official statistics, contracts were inked on 100 foreign investment projects at the fair, with a total capital of US$2 billion. Among them, 95 projects were launched by enterprises in Heilongjiang Province, with a total investment of US$1.69 billion, a rise of 19 per cent over the last session.

    The contract value of domestic investment projects amounted to 81.87 billion yuan (US$10.2 billion). The 351 Heilongjiang projects attracted 44.57 billion yuan (US$5.6 billion) in total, up 19.5 per cent.
    The import and export contracts reached US$5.15 billion in value, a jump of 30.1 per cent from the previous session. A total of 25 domestic trade delegations struck such deals with partners from 45 countries and regions, including Russia, Iran, the United States, the Republic of Korea, Turkey, Japan, and China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR).

    The value of the import and export contracts signed by Heilongjiang's dealers increased 36 per cent to US$4.65 billion.

    Besides, the Heilongjiang delegation signed 25 agreements on contracting projects in and transferring labour services to overseas countries and regions.

    In addition, Heilongjiang's enterprises have entered into contracts to invest a combined of US$760 million in 19 overseas projects.

    The total value of domestic trade contracts rose 19.8 per cent to reach 12.22 billion yuan (US$1.5 billion), with 91.3 per cent of them, or 11.16 billion yuan (US$1.4 billion) worth of sales contracts, signed by Heilongjiang dealers.

    It is worth noting that all the above-mentioned figures referred to contracts that had been finalized, without taking agreements of intent into account. Moreover, all the projects can be carried out in the near future.

    Among all the contracts signed, the number of foreign-funded projects each with an investment of more than US$10 million reached 41.

    In addition, there are 82 domestic-funded projects each with an investment of more than 100 million yuan (US$12.5 million), with the combined investment accounting for 88 per cent of the total value of domestic-invested projects signed at the fair.

    There are also 52 foreign trade contracts each with a value exceeding US$10 million, and 108 domestic trade contracts each with a value of more than 10 million yuan (US$1.3 million).

    The hot investment fields included the projects for the revitalization of the old industrial bases in Heilongjiang Province, processing of natural resources, construction of modernized cities, and the Harbin-Daqing-Qiqihar Industrial Corridor.

    The Russian investment in Heilongjiang Province reached a new high, with a total value of US$410 million to be injected into nine projects.

    International platform

    While continuing to serve as a platform for domestic and foreign businesses to conduct trade cooperation, expand investment and exchange information and ideas, the 17th Harbin trade fair has attracted foreign visitors from more countries and regions, with the number of foreign delegations of above provincial and state levels rising by 20 per cent over the previous session.

    In fact, it was the first time for the event to add the adjective of "international" to the name of the 17th session.

    The forums, seminars and promotional conferences at this session witnessed further international participation. Business representatives from Russia, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Poland, Hungary, China's Hong Kong SAR and Taiwan Province played an active role at the fair by holding more than 40 project promotional conferences.

    The Chinese businesses and trade organizations from 26 overseas countries and regions came to the fair to seek trade partners and investment projects. As a result, this session of the Harbin trade fair has made a historic breakthrough from a regional fair to an international event.

    Besides foreign guests, domestic participants have all reaped bumper harvests at the fair. East China's Zhejiang Province, for instance, signed 54 contracts of various kinds, with a total investment of 12.4 billion yuan (US$1.6 billion).

    Shanghai Municipality and Guizhou Province respectively inked 18.8 billion yuan and 6.1 billion yuan (US$2.4 billion and US$763 million) worth of contracts. The value of contracts signed by domestic delegations except those from Heilongjiang Province stood at 37.3 billion yuan (US$4.7 billion) in total.
