"We believe that the Chinese government is highly ambitious and possesses a clear vision to use innovative technologies to modernize its transportation infrastructure,"

The China International Import Expo has set aside over 30,000 square meters of exhibition space to vehicles and car-related products.

Major automobile manufacturers and auto parts makers such as General Motors, Volkswagen and Tesla will also showcase their latest products and technologies during the import expo between November 5-10.
