SIAL China, Asia's largest food and beverage exhibition, is proud to announce Argentina as the Guest Country of Honor at this year’s exhibition, scheduled from May 17 to May 19, 2017 in Shanghai. This announcement recognizes the increased commercial exchange in agribusiness between China and Argentina. As the Guest Country of Honor at SIAL China 2017, Argentina’s pavilions will cover more than 1200 sqm showcasing products that will receive increased exposure to professional Chinese and international visitors, as SIAL China continues to expand and promote international collaboration and innovation.


Following 2014 and 2015 presidential visits, Argentina and China agreed to strengthen bilateral ties by signing several agreements to boost agricultural products trade. As a result, consumers in China have benefited from a significant increase in the supply of Argentina’s outstanding quality foods and beverages.

We are delighted to announce Argentina as the Guest Country of Honor at SIAL China 2017. China is the second largest export market for Argentine agricultural products, and we witnessed strong interest in Argentine products at SIAL China 2016. As the Guest Country of Honor, Argentine producers will have an elevated platform to showcase their products to professional guests from China and the Asia-Pacific.” Said, Jim LIU, President of SIAL China.

Expected 80,000 professionals in attendance, SIAL China presents an unique opportunity for producers to open new avenues of distribution and collaboration. Larger in scope than 2016, with an estimated 3,200 exhibitors representing more than 70 countries; covering 149,500 sqm split into 21 unique food sectors spread over 13 halls, this years’ exhibition is poised to provide even more unique opportunities for innovation than ever before.
