Background: The People's Republic of China is currently staging a big trade exhibition in the Peruvian capital, Lima.
The exhibition comes just ten months after the signing of a trade agreement between Peru and China.
On display at the exhibition are various agricultural products, tinned foodstuffs, basketware, heavy machinery--and an elaborate model of a petrol refinery.
SYNOPSIS: At the Museum of Art in the Peruvian capital, Lima--a big trade exhibition staged by the People's Republic of China. The exhibition comes just ten months after China signed a trade agreement with Peru. The displays are designed to show the range of goods produced in China--and something of the way of life.
Among officials inspecting the exhibition--China's new ambassador to Lima, Chiao Jo-Yu. He's in the grey suit. In Navy uniform is Peru's Minister of Industry.
Foodstuffs have a prominent place at the exhibition. Included are both fresh fruit...and tinned foods. Chinese representatives were able to explain to their guests how the food industry in China has developed in recent years.
Cereals and nuts are also on display. Under the 1971 trade agreement Peru is already buying a quantity of soya products.
Basketware--and similar hand-made products are a feature of the exhibition.
The public are being admitted to the fair which includes large still photographs depicting the present way of life in China. But the main purpose of the fair is to develop trade--and furs are among the products the Chinese are offering.
The famous China tea comes in many blends and many wrappings on this stand--along with other tinned products. But a lesser known product of China is their wines, on display--and available for testing.
China has already made a big effort in Peru to sell heavy machinery. Equipment like this was written in to the trade agreement last May. Modern lathes have pride of place in this exhibit.
A working model of the Taching Petrol refinery in Northern China--perfect to the last detail--is a major attraction at the fair, and an indication of China's development in this field. Various types of piping are displayed on another stand.
Still photographs highlight the emphasis China places on industrial development--and with each photograph, a display of products China hopes to well to Peruvian industry.
