Facilitating small and medium-sized enterprises’ (SME) innovations and development and supporting the initiatives of the Government of the People's Republic of China in strengthening the cultivation of SME towards “PRSI”, the first “PRSI – Shining Stars in Plastics & Rubber Industries” will be held on the first day of the show (Apr 17). This event will not only act as a platform for PRSI enterprises to explore business opportunities, but also an award ceremony to the “PRSI” companies to receive the exclusive special “PRSI” plaque for their booths to gain further exposure at the show.

At the event, more than 40 well-known experts from the sectors of automobiles, medical and healthcare, packaging, electronics etc., will connect face-to-face with "PRSI" enterprises and help them expand business opportunities.
