According to the publication, the exhibits eligible for preferential tax policies do not include animals and plants banned from being imported into the PRC, endangered animals, and plants as well as products made from them, tobacco, alcohol and cars.

The Second China International Consumer Products Expo will be held in Haikou from April 12 to 16.
