China and US scheduled exchange of trade shows
China and the United States traded trade shows this fall, with a display of American industry in Peking in November and a show of Chinese industry, culture, and arts traveling to three US cities from September to December. The reciprocal shows are the result of the Sino-Us Trade Exhibitions Agreement, signed last May by then-Secretary of Commerce Juanita Kreps and Li Qiang, China's minister of foreign trade.
"We expect to gain an increased awareness and a higher level of recognition on the part of officials of the People's Republic," Stephen Newhouse, a spokesman for Caterpillar Tractor Company, said. The Company expects to see people who are mainly interested in buying or, at least, learning more about the firm and "not a lot of people just kicking tires," Mr. Newhouse said.
