China's 1968 Autumn Export Commodities Fair in Kwangchow came to a successful conclusion on November 15. Its one-month run witnessed a tremendous success in the dissemination of the great thought of Mao Tse-tung, in expanding China's friendly intercourse with foreign countries, and in exchanging needed goods with other countries and regions on the basis of equality and mutual benefit Throughout the month, the fair was brisk and prosperous, and both export and import transactions surpassed those of all previous fairs.
An unprecedented number of friends from trade circles all over the world attended. Compared with the past, this autumn fair played host to more government trade officials, representatives of state-run firms and businessmen from Asian and African countries, as well as tradesmen and industrialists from West European countries. Large numbers of representatives of friendly Japanese firms, overseas Chinese, and compatriots from Hongkong and Macao also attended. Trade delegations were sent by Tanzania, Guinea, the Congo (Brazzaville), Nepal, Cambodia, Iraq and other countries. Tens of thousands of trade contracts were made. While the fair was on, the imperialists, modern revisionists and reactionaries of all countries kept spreading shameless lies and slanders in an attempt to sabotage it, but all their schemes were to no avail. The enormous success of the fair testified to this statement in the Communique of the Enlarged 12th Plenary Session of the Eighth Central Committee of the Communist Party of China: "We are not in the least isolated, for the people who want revolution, comprising over 90 per cent of the world's population, are our friends."

The fair was also host to friends of political, economic, military, cultural, foreign affairs and friendship organizations from dozens of countries and regions, as well as large numbers of foreign seamen, compatriots from Hongkong and Macao and overseas Chinese, who had all come to see the industrial and agricultural products on display. Adil Carcani, leader of the Albanian Government Economic Delegation, warmly praised it after his visit, saying: "We have seen at the fair a magnificent array of new products, made by the Chinese working class with their hands and wisdom, that are up to advanced world levels. We have also seen the fruits of the creative labour of the Chinese peasants and herdsmen. The great success won by the Chinese people is a heavy blow to U.S. imperialism and Soviet revisionism." He added: "The fair we have seen is not only a trade centre. More important, it has mada a tremendous contribution to the spreading of Mao Tse-tung's thought throughout the world."

The Communique of the Enlarged 12th Plenary Session of the Eighth Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, which was made public while the fair was in progress, was a great inspiration to the foreign friends. An African friend said with great feeling: "The communique is a summing-up of the victories of China's great proletarian cultural revolution over the past two years and more. It will greatly encourage the world's revolutionary people in their struggles." After hearing the communique, many Japanese friends held discussion meetings, while others paraded in the streets, hailing Its publication.

Friends from the five continents attending the fair visited factories, rural people's communes and schools. They made extensive contacts with Chinese workers, peasants, young Red Guards and revolutionary intellectuals. Through these visits and contacts, they have acquired a better knowledge and understanding of the revolutionary practice of the Chinese working class which, enthusiastically responding to their great leader Chairman Mao's call that the working class must exercise leadership in everything, has mounted the historical stage of struggle-criticism-transformation in the superstructure. They have also come to have a better knowledge and understanding of the excellent situation in the great proletarian cultural revolution which is nearing all-round victory. The foreign friends attended performances of the piano music The Red Lantern with Peking opera singing — a new variety of proletarian revolutionary art, the contemporary revolutionary Peking operas The Red Lantern, Taking the Bandits' Stronghold, Shachiapang and On the Docks and the contemporary revolutionary ballets The White-Haired Girl and The Red Detachment of Women, as well as the revolutionary symphonic music Shachiapang. All these model revolutionary theatrical works received warm praise and high appraisal.

On the evening of November 15, a cocktail party attended by more than 3,000 people was given in celebration of the success of the fair. Vice-Minister of Foreign Trade Chia Shih was present. Chen Yu, Vice-Chair-man of the Kwangtung Provincial Revolutionary Committee and Chairman of China's Export Commodities Fair, delivered a speech. He said: The month-long fair has won great success. This is another victory for Mao Tse-tung's thought. The unprecedented scale of the fair has dealt a heavy blow to our enemies and thoroughly smashed all their disruptive schemes. The international situation today is excellent, and the world revolution has entered a great new era. Riddled with contradictions and beset with difficulties both at home and abroad, the imperialists headed by the United States and the modern revisionists headed by the Soviet revisionist renegade clique are disintegrating; they are at the end of their tether and are more isolated than ever. As our great leader Chairman Mao has pointed out: "It can be said with certainty that the complete collapse of colonialism, imperialism and all systems of exploitation, and the complete emancipation of all the oppressed peoples and nations, of the world are not far off." In conclusion, Chen Yu said that the Chinese people would raise the great red banner of Mao Tse-tung's thought still higher, fulfil their internationalist obligations still better, continue to carry out the foreign trade policy of equality and mutual benefit and supplying each other's needs, actively develop international friendly trade, and promote friendship with the people of all countries.
