Over 4,700 volunteers get to work for upcoming CIIE******
SHANGHAI, Oct. 20 (Xinhua) -- More than 4,700 people were sworn in as volunteers on Wednesday and started going about with their duties for the fourth China International Import Expo (CIIE) scheduled from Nov. 5 to 10 in Shanghai, according to local authorities.
The volunteers are university students from Shanghai and more than 80 percent of them were born after 2000, according to the Shanghai municipal committee of the Communist Youth League of China.
The duties of the volunteers include guiding people around the venue, offering epidemic prevention and control information, and handling other related work during the event.
Tens of thousands of volunteers have provided services since the first CIIE in 2018 to ensure the smooth running of the expo. Enditem
Pique turns striker to keep Barca's Champions League hopes alive******
MADRID, Oct. 20 (Xinhua) -- Gerard Pique's 36th minute goal gave FC Barcelona a nervy 1-0 win at home to Dinamo Kiev to keep alive their hopes of reaching the UEFA Champions League last 16.
The central defender peeled off and found space to smash home Jordi Alba's cross from the left to give his side the lead in a game they had to win after losing 3-0 to both Bayern Munich and Benfica.
Until that moment the fans in a Camp Nou stadium that again failed to attract 50,000 supporters had begun to show their frustration, after seeing Sergino Dest and Luuk de Jong miss chances to put the Catalans ahead.
De Jong was preferred in attack to Ansu Fati, who Barca coach Ronald Koeman had said prior to the game was still not fit enough to start three games in a week, and the big Dutch striker had a complicated first half.
He headed wide from six meters out after 18 minutes, and seven minutes later rose to meet a Memphis Depay corner, but once again failed to hit the target.
Dest was also guilty of missing a header before firing straight at the keeper when he had the goal at his mercy.
Fati and Philippe Coutinho came on for De Jong and Oscar Mingueza for the start of the second half to allow Dest to drop back into defense and Fati went close with an overhead kick.
Kiev struggled to create much in attack, although Pique did well to block an effort from Viktor Tsyhankov following a set piece.
Coutinho had a good chance to ensure the win for Barca with just under 20 minutes to play but sliced his effort wide, although Barca held on for a win which, although far from convincing, means they keep their Champions League hopes alive ahead of Sunday's 'Clasico' against Real Madrid. Enditem
Economic Watch: CIIE helps exhibitors find access to Chinese market******
SHANGHAI, Nov. 9 (Xinhua) -- Influenced by a new type of consumers and buoyed by the upcoming shopping season in China, exhibitors at the ongoing China International Import Expo (CIIE) have been showcasing more varied products and new marketing methods.。
The 4th CIIE, held in Shanghai on Nov. 5-10, has drawn nearly 3,000 businesses from 127 countries and regions. Many of them have brought tailored products and services for the expanding Chinese market.。
The art category is a new zone at this year's exhibition, presenting luxurious paintings and creative cultural products for high-end consumers. Many exhibitors brought novelties such as stationery, cups and ornaments featuring elements designed by famous artists.。
With the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics approaching, products related to winter sports are highlighted at the CIIE. Companies are exhibiting new boards, smart outwears and other cutting-edge equipment to attract Chinese consumers.。
China has been working on getting 300 million people involved in winter sports while statistics showed that Chinese people spent 13 times more money from a year before on ski and snowboard products in the last ski season.。
In recent years, blind boxes -- a small toy box whose content is unknown before opening -- and other novel toys have gained popularity in the Chinese market, especially with strong demand from young consumers. In order to tap into the trend, CIIE exhibitors have adjusted their strategies not only with diversified products and services but also more eye-catching packages and stylish booth gifts.。
Moreover, many exhibitors have oriented their marketing channels to cater to Chinese consumers' habits.。
Theland, a New Zealand dairy company in Shanghai for its fourth consecutive CIIE show, has been showing visitors the company's homepage and mini-program on Chinese social media platforms. It also set up a live-stream channel to introduce their products to online Chinese buyers.。
Such kind of e-commerce practice was rarely seen during the first CIIE as few exhibitors had social-media accounts in 2018, let alone accounts on Chinese platforms. In the 2019 edition, companies familiar with Chinese consumers started to use QR codes -- a type of matrix barcode containing data. Then at the third CIIE, live-streaming became a trendy marketing method.。
From QR codes to live-stream marketing, foreign sellers are getting closer and closer to Chinese consumers. One essential reason for this change is the high-degree digitalization of the Chinese market, said He Ying, director of strategy consulting at KPMG China.。
As Chinese consumers are planning for the year-end shopping season following the expo, which includes the "Double 11" shopping spree falling on Nov. 11 and the New Year celebration, CIIE participants are trying their best to adjust to new trends in China and seize the opportunities of the booming market.
