For companies in this sector, the 8th China – LAC Business Summit can be an excellent opportunity to contact importers and distributors in China. The summit will take place on September 12 - 14 co-organized by IDB, the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT) and the Government of the Province of Hunan.
