Since 2000, China’s trade with Africa has tripled. “This has resulted in a deluge of business opportunities for entrepreneurs - who both exhibit and visit AB7”, says John Thomson of Exhibition Management Services (EMS), organisers of the event. “AB7 is uniquely positioned to facilitate growing two-way trade opportunities.” Over 300 exhibitors from 34 countries will be participating in this year’s show.

Chinese exhibitors will be bringing a variety of products to AB7, with something on offer for businessmen in all sectors looking for great trade opportunities. Frozen foods, preservatives, bakery equipment, chicken products and noodle machines, to additives and soy products, AB7 has something to offer everyone! With such a wide variety of products on offer at the Chinese pavilion it certainly is ‘the pavilion of plenty’.

Some of the companies exhibiting include:

· Fufeng Group - which specialises in the design and production of Xanthan Gum.
