News this week: NASDAQ-listed, Global Sources, opened its fall 2013 series of consumer goods shows on 19th October. The four co-located events, China Sourcing Fairs: Baby & Children’s Products, Christmas & Seasonal Products, Gifts & Premiums, and Home Products, were held at the AsiaWorld-Expo (AWE) until 22nd October.

Under the theme “Lifestyle”, the focuses of the shows were innovation, eco-friendliness and social-compliance. Products were showcased under the three main areas of: decorating, living and giving.
