Companies can take advantage of the opportunities arising from the Chinese government’s 12th Five-Year Plan which outlines an annual RMB 400 billion spending to improve water resources.  As well as exhibiting at the show, many exhibitors are raising their profile by taking part in product seminars and business matchmaking forums.

In response to the 12th Five-Year Plan, the show will cover eight important market sectors – service providers, water purification/ membrane, wastewater, pump, valves, irrigation, flood prevention and drought resistance, and sludge treatment and disposal.  There will also be more than 40 technical conferences and presentations focussing on Chinese water policy, planning, design and operation, including the 7th China International Water Summit.
