A trade fair displaying the featured products of several national-level poverty-stricken areas is set to take place in Shanghai from Oct 17 to 21.

Jointly organized by the Shanghai municipal government and the Shanghai-based Jiefang Daily, the fair aims to promote the formation of a production and sales system for the featured products of the poverty-stricken areas, to improve the marketization of the products and popularity, and eventually to help the areas get rid of poverty.
