Apparel manufacturer Bosideng, based in Jiangsu Province, and furniture maker Holike in Guangzhou will exhibit on fashion and designs in the China Corporation Joint Pavilion.
Information on the design of the China Corporation Joint Pavilion has been publicized under the theme “Chinese seeds.”
Many state-owned enterprises such as the Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China and Baosteel have confirmed their participation at the pavilion.
The architecture of the China Pavilion, shaped in the form of rippling wheat, will stretch for 4,590 square meters, and the core exhibition concepts will be “heaven, Earth, humanity and harmony,” said Wang Jinzhen, general representative of the China Pavilion.
The Milan Expo will last from May 1 to October 31, 2015.
