                     China and Poland do business at China Expo Poland 2011

Poland’s first ever trade show devoted entirely to economic cooperation with China is about to
take place – China Expo Poland 2011. The honorary patrons of the show are the Polish
Chamber of Commerce and the Polish Information and Foreign Investment Agency. The event
will be held from 8-10 September at the MT Polska Trade Fair and Congress Centre at ul. Marsa
56c in Warsaw. During China Expo, many companies from the People’s Republic of China will
be presenting a wide range of products including furniture, white goods, electronics, bathroom
fixtures, office products, home furnishings, clothing, footware, souvenirs, decorations and
textiles. Experts will be conducting symposia on various aspects of trading and doing
business with Chinese partners. What’s more, there will be many contests and attractions for
visitors, including dancing dragons, kung fu and oriental food. China Expo Poland is
organised by China Town Travel S.C. and MT Polska. Admission to the show is free.

“This year will see the first edition of China Expo Poland, the largest trade fair in Poland totally devoted
to economic cooperation with China. The three days of the show will be a perfect opportunity for
displaying Chinese companies and products, which are distinguished not just by their attractive prices,
but by top quality. The show will also provide a forum for Polish and Chinese entrepreneurs to
establish direct business contacts, which will no doubt be beneficial to both sides. China is Poland’s
largest Asian trading partner, and many Polish businesses are now interested in effective cooperation
with Chinese producers and exporters, even if it may not seem a simple task to maintain stable
relations with suppliers over such a great distance. During the show, experts will be presenting ways
of cooperating effectively with Chinese partners, ways already being used by many businesses in
Poland. One important thing is that small family businesses fit in here very well. That’s why we’re
counting on representatives of small and medium-sized companies taking part in the symposium in
order to discover new ideas for developing their business,” says Bartosz Sosnowski, President of the
Management Board of MT Polska.

“During China Expo Poland, visitors will also have the chance to get to know the cultural side of China,
thanks to numerous attractions accompanying the show. There’ll be plenty of displays and
demonstrations, so at our event you’ll be able to experience how in China tradition is coming up
against the modern world. The show already looks promising, especially since the whole facility has
been assigned to the event – that means 10,000 square metres of exhibition space,” adds Bartosz

More than 250 exhibitors from China have announced their participation in China Expo Poland. The
event will be accompanied by an interesting program of panels and presentations on such topics as
cultural differences when doing business with Chinese partners, supporting mutual investments in
China and Poland, and financing trade with China. The event will be a valuable source of information,
and of advice and tips from the experts on how to start up and conduct business with the Chinese.

All visitors must register - free of charge – and this can be done in advance online at or during the show. Admission to the event is free. Those who sign up for the
