GUANGZHOU: Enjoying the taste and aroma of Pakistan’s white Chaunsa Mango, one of the world’s top available varieties, the guests, including government officers and entrepreneurs tapped the Pakistan-China market potential last week at a GICC Salon in Guangzhou, the capital city of China’s Guangdong province.

The event, themed “Guangzhou Overseas Market Expansion and Pakistani Mango Tasting”, is hosted by the Guangzhou International Cooperation Center (GICC) and co-organised by Guangzhou Iron Pak Commerce Co, Ltd, China, and MERAPC Solutions Pvt, Pakistan, according to the CEN Network.

Li Yuezhou, CEO of MERAPC Solutions Pvt, Pakistan, shared his experience in doing business in Pakistan. He said Pakistan is witnessing a boosting brand awareness and an evolution of consumption mode.

In the future, he wishes to enter the local market together with other Chinese enterprises that want to ‘go out’ and eye Pakistan’s potential.

At the same time, Yuezhou’s team is also importing Iron Pak’s specialties such as Batie mangoes. His team has shipped five batches of mangoes from Pakistan to China this year, and another six batches of mangoes will soon arrive in China.

Given Guangzhou’s edges, he said some major industries can be tapped in Pakistan. “Our team is building a Guangzhou Bag Pavilion in Pakistan,” he said, adding that the first batch of four containers of bags is expected to arrive in Pakistan in the middle to late August.

Nearly 40 people attended the event, during which the mangoes were well-received by the guests and several agreements of intention were achieved.

Supervised by Foreign Affairs Office of Guangzhou Municipal Government, GICC is a non-profit comprehensive international exchange platform established to further strengthen and deepen exchanges and practical cooperation between Guangzhou and global cities in fields of economy, trade, technology, education, and culture.

In the future, GICC will hold a series of activities regularly to promote cooperation between Guangzhou enterprises and countries along the Belt and Road in science and technology, business investment, and cultural exchanges.
