New CIIE star: Himalayan salt lamp attracts attention

Pakistan Himalayan Salt Lamp is beautiful and unique, which combines nature and art well. It’s beautiful, it’s practical, it purifies the air, and we’ve rarely seen anything like it before, Ms. Zhang, a Chinese visitor to CIIE, told Gwadar Pro.

From November 5 to 10, the 4th China International Import Expo (CIIE) will be held in Shanghai. On this occasion, many Pakistani exhibitors were invited to exhibit their products, arousing the interest of visitors from all over the world. Among them, Himalayan salt lamps officially appeared for the first time as a brand at the China Large-Scale Exhibition.

“Using salt lamps to purify the air has been a traditional culture in Pakistan for thousands of years. I would like to introduce it to Chinese customers. All lamps are mined in the Himalayas and exported to China.

They retain their original colors and shapes, and guests can breathe the Himalayas through the beautiful rocks. That’s why Chinese buyers love them, ”Mian Muhammad Zubair, a Pakistani Himalayan salt lamp dealer, told Gwadar Pro.

He also introduced that Pakistani Himalayan salt with different colors such as white, pink, red and black, is famous all over the world. Exporting them to China is not only a huge business opportunity, but also a promotion of traditional Pakistani culture.

The price of the salt lamp depends on the weight of the salt block. For example, 1-2 kg of salt lamp is 200 CNY, 3-5 kg ​​is 400-450 CNY. The largest salt lamp with a weight of 50 kg can be sold for CNY3800.

All buyers think the price is reasonable. “Most families in China can afford it and are happy to decorate it in their homes,” he said.

Pakistan Salt Lamp exhibitors said that in one day, all of the items displayed on the shelves were sold and restocked. Over 30 pieces of lamps were sold on the 6th. Many products have already been ordered. At the same time, they also exhibited rare black salt lamps, attracting the attention of consumers. Habib urRehman, another Pakistani trader, said, “This is the first time that we introduce salt lamps to the Chinese market as a brand. Pakistani salt lamps have never been introduced to China before on such a large platform. Chinese consumers are also more enthusiastic than expected for salt lamps.

He summarized three reasons why Chinese customers love the salt lamp. “First of all, it’s very practical as a lamp. Second, its unique texture, color and shape are ornamental and aesthetic. Finally, everything is natural and healthy. It will slowly melt after 2530 years.

It reacts with water in the air and absorbs impurities releasing ions. So, it can purify the air, improve sleep, and even be good for the skin.

Habib also presented their export situation: “Now the salt blocks are being shipped from Karachi. In the future, we will consider transporting them via KKH to China, which will not only be faster but also cheaper.

Thanks to the second phase of CPEC and FTA, it is very convenient for us to export our products to China with low tariffs. At the same time, as the epidemic in China is under effective control, our exports to China have not been significantly affected. “
