Gulf Industry Fair 2019 will join with the China Machinery Fair, the Middle East’s largest Chinese trade expo, to be held in Bahrain.

The China Machinery Fair was born out of a partnership signed with Silk Road Steps by Eco-Culture Committee Secretary-General Zhang Ming, last December.

Gulf Industry Fair 2019 will be held under the patronage of Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al-Khalifa from Sept. 24-26 at the Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre.

Hilal Conferences and Exhibitions Managing Director Jubran Abdulrahman said: “The China Machinery Fair is a part of the Belt and Road policy of China, which is looking to build on China’s historical trade corridor with the Middle East. Visitors will be able to view over 100 Chinese companies specialising in heavy machinery and industrial machinery and applications.”

Gulf Industry Fair 2019 will focus on the fourth industrial revolution and its importance to economic diversification in the GCC.

“The Gulf Industry and China Machinery fairs are taking place at a trans-formative era for the global economy. Gulf Industry Fair will be hosting strong international presence from Germany, Italy, US, Turkey, Pakistan, and Japan,” said Ahmed Suleiman, Exhibition Director.
