Monday marks the start of a 100-day countdown to the third China International Import Expo (CIIE). Experts consider the CIIE an important opportunity for global exporters, as China aims to open its vast consumer market to more foreign businesses, despite rising protectionism and nationalism globally. The third CIIE is scheduled from November 5 to 10 this year. The total planned exhibition area for enterprises at the third CIIE is 360,000 square meters, 60,000 square meters larger than the previous edition, while the average exhibition area for the world's top 500 companies and industry leaders will increase by 14 percent from last year.
