Zhejiang products shine at BRICS Summit
Zhejiang companies are providing products and services for the 2017 BRICS Summit being held in Xiamen, Fujian province on Sept 3-5.
Maintur Furniture, a Dongyang company specializing in Chinese traditional mahogany furniture, is the provider of the round tables and chairs in the main venues of the summit.
Xu Zhifeng, assistant to the general manager of Maintur, said the company made three special sets of tables for the event, which are engraved with Xiamen characteristics like egrets, water ripples, dolphins and flowers. The manufacturing process took more than two months.
Maintur was also the furniture provider for the G20 Hangzhou Summit last September.

The summit's media center is also outfitted with products made in Zhejiang by Anji Dakang Group. The tables and chairs in the center are borrowed from the venue for the G20 Hangzhou Summit.
The organizing committee members of the 2017 BRICS Summit were attracted by the furniture when they visited Hangzhou last year. Dakang has also made some pieces in a new style for the Xiamen event.
The pens used by country leaders are from Ningbo Beifa Group, the country's leading manufacturer of stationery. Xie Jianzhe, chief designer at Beifa, said they designed three kinds of pens for country leaders, ministers and media staff. All patterns are based on Xiamen's cultural elements.
