As the fifth CIIE approaches, exhibits are arriving in Shanghai via various means. On Sept. 20, the first batch of inbound exhibits, with a declared value of 560 million yuan (about 78.7 million U.S. dollars), cleared customs at the Shanghai Pudong International Airport.

According to Shanghai Customs, the peak of exhibit arrivals is expected to occur in October. Shanghai Customs said it will continue to optimize the clearance process of exhibits and provide safe, convenient, and efficient customs clearance services.

Thousands of miles away, Roy van den Hurk, general manager of Theland Global R&D at Milk New Zealand Dairy, is busy applying for his visa to attend the coming 2022 expo.
"China's huge consumer market helps foreign trade enterprises like us to find opportunities in the green food industry and promote global economic recovery," said van den Hurk, who has participated in the event three times.
The expo has helped the New Zealand company to embark on the "fast track" of development in China, van den Hurk noted, as Theland is now even available in supermarkets in small counties in central and western China.
