The 127th session of the China Import and Export Fair, or the Canton Fair, previously scheduled between April 15 and May 5, will be postponed, given the high risk of imported COVID-19 cases.

The Guangdong provincial authority in South China will put forward a proposal to reschedule the fair based on the epidemic situation afterward, Ma Hua, deputy director of the provincial Department of Commerce, said at a press conference in Guangzhou on Monday.
