Chinaplas show floor

Many companies in Asia are export-oriented nowadays, fueling expansion of international trade in the region. The Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), which came into force in January 2022, is set to create the largest free trade bloc in the world among its 15 signatories and will further provide an impetus to Asian production. Chinaplas, Asia’s number one plastics and rubber trade fair, looks set to help industry players unlock RCEP opportunities and plug into the prosperous prospects brought by the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA). The event will be staged at the Shenzhen World Exhibition and Convention Center (SWECC) in Shenzhen on April 17 to 20, 2023.

Under the theme of “A Brighter and Shared Future, Powered by Innovation,” Chinaplas 2023 will highlight innovative plastics solutions and relevant market trends in a 380,000-square-meter exhibition area. Attendees from the global plastics industry will discover a well-balanced mixture of international and Chinese technologies, covering a range of applications that are transforming end markets, said event organizer Adsale Exhibition Services Ltd. (Adsale).

Trade bloc transforms Asia into global manufacturing hub

The 15 signatories to the RCEP agreement — China, the 10 ASEAN member states, South Korea, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand — allow preferential access for specific products in selected RCEP markets. Businesses in the region will now benefit from tariff elimination on more than 90% of goods over time. These products range from plastics and mineral fuel to miscellaneous food preparations and beverages, and other chemical products. The RCEP is supporting Asia’s growth as a global manufacturing hub.

According to statistics from the United Nations, Asia’s industrial value-add rose significantly from $2.7 trillion in 2000 to $9.4 trillion in 2019, while Asia’s share of global industrial value-add expanded from 35.9% to 50.9%. China’s share rocketed from 6.4% to 24.9%, while the share of ASEAN also went up from 2.8% to 4.8%. The 15 RCEP members had a combined share of 40.2% by 2019, compared with 29.4% in 2000. Data from Chinese Customs shows that in 2021, imports and exports between China and the other 14 RCEP members totaled RMB 12.07 trillion ($1.73 trillion), up 18.1% year-on-year and accounting for 30.9% of China’s total foreign trade value. Thanks to liberalization under the RCEP, further growth is expected, creating tremendous prospects for the plastics and rubber industries, according to Adsale.

GBA uniquely positioned to maximize growth under RCEP

Companies in the GBA region can leverage global opportunities provided by the RCEP. Shenzhen and Hong Kong, in particular, create synergies to expedite the global expansion of companies. Shenzhen, with strong policy support from the central government, is expected to further develop into a center of innovation, entrepreneurship, and creativity. Hong Kong, with its strength as an international trading hub, has long been a premium business platform handling outbound investments from the mainland, including those to ASEAN and other RCEP members. These advantages give Shenzhen and Hong Kong a unique significance in global expansion, said Adsale.

A brighter future through innovation

In April 2023, Chinaplas will return to Shenzhen, gateway city to the GBA and RCEP as well as the thriving innovation and technology hub of Southern China. Upgraded technologies and ever-smarter solutions on display at Chinaplas 2023 can help industry to take advantage of emerging opportunities in the RCEP and GBA and react in real time to rapidly changing markets.

More than 3,900 exhibitors are anticipated at Chinaplas 2023, including eight country pavilions featuring companies from Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States, and a regional pavilion highlighting products and services from Taiwan. Eighteen themed zones in the Machinery and Chemical & Raw Materials halls cover injection molding, extrusion machinery, 3D printing, recycling, smart manufacturing, bioplastics, composites, high-performance materials, and thermoplastic elastomers and rubbers, among other technologies.

Chinaplas has become a preferred platform for the plastics and rubber industries to debut new products and solutions and showcase innovative materials and machinery technologies, according to Adsale. In addition to leading-edge technologies and practical solutions from all over the world, Chinaplas provides a platform for domestic companies growing in the spirit of “professionalization, refinement, specialization and innovation.” Buyers from numerous industries, including automotive, building & construction, electronics & electric, medical, new energy, packaging, recycling, and sports & leisure, will find a tremendous selection of products and services relevant to their industrial needs.

Several concurrent events, including seminars on the circular economy, smart manufacturing, and design innovation, are being planned. Stay tuned for details.

  1. In 2022, the NBA announced it would adopt the Play-In Tournament on a full-time basis. The Play-In Tournament serves to increase the number of teams that remain in the playoff hunt throughout the regular season. Four teams square off to claim the final two spots in the traditional playoffs. Bookmark. Save. Favorite. This is the one-stop shop for everything related to NBA games today and the NBA schedule heading into the new season. We’ll cover it all, from the preseason in the Fall and onto the 2023-2024 NBA season. But James’ goal is not to win playoff games or to reach the Finals. It’s to win the entire thing. Fisher did that five times, and the ghost LeBron has admitted chasing has six rings. The Lakers are in the middle of a hard-fought second-round series with the Rockets, and even if they make it through, they’d have two difficult opponents remaining in their path. That includes the Los Angeles Clippers, the rival led by Kawhi Leonard, who spurned James’ advances in free agency.
