The Overseas Shopping Exhibition of the 2021 Qingdao Shopping Festival was held on Oct 16-18 at the Mixc shopping mall, in the Shinan district of Qingdao city in East China's Shandong province, according to local media reports.

More than 30 foreign trading companies located in Shinan, including Qili Group and Ocean Garden Co Ltd, displayed their products at the event.

A wide range of products – including textiles and clothing, daily necessities, canned food, handicrafts and cultural products – reportedly showcased the increasingly diversified business operations and the trends of foreign trading enterprises.   

In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, many foreign trading enterprises in the district promptly changed their business strategies and targeted sales in both home and aboard.
