"So from all different aspects, the, um, the, the increase of Chinese imports as symbolized by the Shanghai import expo a is a, is a critical part of a, of China's current strategy and is good for in every possible way. It's one of the, one of the few things in the world that has really no downside. It is all positive for everyone."
The CIIE, the first-ever Chinese fair focusing exclusively on imported goods and services, is expected to draw more than 2,800 companies from over 130 countries and regions.
Kuhn said there are multiple reasons that so many companies are attending the event.

“China is a, in most areas, either the world's largest market or will become the world's largest market and no company in this world can afford not to be in the Chinese market. And there are multiple reasons that the obvious reason is to generate revenues and profits, but there's actually a more important reason and that is because of the dynamism of the Chinese market."
The expo is to be held in Shanghai on Nov 5-10.
