Automobile exhibitors and buyers linked up at a “matchmaking” session on Friday ahead of the second China International Import Expo to be held in Shanghai in November.
Major car manufacturers including General Motors, Toyota and Iveco discussed potential business opportunities, including future sales and partnerships, with buyers.
A total of 69 auto companies from 16 countries and regions will participate in the second import expo this year. Around 30 are Fortune Global 500 companies.
The key focuses of the automobile exhibition area at the expo will be new-energy and autonomous vehicles. Many Asia premiere automobile products will be released during the expo.
Italian commercial vehicle manufacturer Iveco said that it will bring an Asia premiere commercial vehicle and an off-road vehicle during the second China International Import Expo. The company entered the Chinese market in 1985 and offers a full range of vehicles powered by natural gas, from light to heavy trucks and buses.
