Hala China

Hala China is gearing up for the first China-UAE Economic and Trade Digital Expo, taking place from July 12-20, 2020, in partnership with the China International Exhibition Centre Group Corporation (CIEC).

The virtual exhibition is set to explore further economic growth opportunities between both countries during a time of industrial transformation amidst the ‘new normal’.

With the support of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT) and the Ministry of Economy of the UAE, the expo will include nine sessions that highlight emerging opportunities in Smart Metropolitan and Big Data, Energy-Saving and New Energy Vehicles, Modern Agriculture, Free zone/Finance and Investment, New Building Materials, Textile and Fashion, Education, Healthcare Supply (medical items), and Travel and Tourism, through a series of virtual exhibitions and discussions with keynote speakers.


To reinforce the UAE’s status as a global hub for international trade, the UAE’s Ministry of Economy will highlight the role of local trade organisations in developing strategic partnerships with businesses while also presenting an overview of current projects in the pipeline, which can elevate the trade relations between the two countries.

Chairman of the Board of Directors, Hala China, Sheikh Majid Al Mualla stated: “China and the UAE are already at the forefront of innovation in the modern world. Organising an exhibition of this scale is testament to the resilient spirit, unity and ingenuity of both nations. As the world works to recover and transition to a new way of life, our bilateral relations with China offer us new and strategic opportunities for mutual growth and cooperation in a post-pandemic world.”

As part of the virtual Expo, the UAE-China Trade fair’s Smart Metropolitan exhibition will showcase cutting-edge technology companies and their achievements in applying technology in real world settings as they advance the UAE’s high-tech industry organically.

In line with the economic strategies and long-standing bilateral ties between the UAE and China, the exhibition will also livestream a series of lectures and video networking sessions on setting up business in the UAE through the country’s multiple free zones.

By organising and collaborating on large-scale events, Hala China continues to enhance economic and cultural exchange between China and the UAE and drive Chinese tourist and investment inflows into the UAE.
