Mr. Bernabe Unda, the Basque's Minister for Industry, Innovation, Commerce and Tourism Department, gave opening remarks.
On Day 1, there were not many visitors attending the show. Some local companies told us that it was common that there were few visitors on Day 1, because many visitors will come in the three coming days.
As usual, China Fastener Info (CFI) spared no effort to distributing lots of China Fastener Directory (CFD) to visitors so as to create more opportunities for the cooperation between Chinese companies and other companies. After talks with purchasers, CFI found that many local companies had keen interest in companies of China mainland and expressed their satisfaction with the passed cooperation with them.
It’s worth mentioning that Jose`Juan Ciordia Girl, a purchaser from Bilbao when coming to CFI’s booth and finding that Wuxi Anshida’s advertised on the cover of CFD, excitedly said, “We have cooperated with Anshida before and we know it well. We feel quite satisfied with their products and service. The company is more reliable after finding it is advertised on the cover of CFD, a main and authoritative magazine in China.”
Please pay attention to the wonderful follow-up reports.
