China’s 1976 Spring Export Commodities Fair closed in Kwangchow on May 15. The fair was the 39th since its inception in 1957. It was held on the eve of the tenth anniversary of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution and in an excellent situation in which the struggle against the Right deviationist attempt to reverse the correct verdicts has won great victory.
The month-long fair received a total of 24,000 visitors—friends from more than 100 countries and regions, overseas Chinese, Taiwan compatriots residing abroad and compatriots from Hongkong and Macao. The number of businessmen who came to negotiate trade contracts was greater than in any previous fair. At the latest fair China undertook to import material and equipment needed for the country’s socialist construction. The fair’s complete success has forcefully repudiated the slanders and distortion by enemies at home and abroad in regard to China’s foreign trade policy and excellent situation.
Visitors to the fair viewed the varied and colourful exhibits including models and photos showing the achievements of a number of advanced units in industry and agriculture as well as in the realm of the superstructure. They also took time out to visit a number of factories and rural people’s communes. What they saw eloquently shows that the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution is a powerful impetus to the development of China’s social productive forces.
