SHUNDE (Guangdong Province), September 28-- The Fifth China Flower Exposition opened Friday in Shunde City, Guangdong Province, in south China.

Florists from 31 Chinese regions as well as Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan, the United States, Italy, Singapore and more than 10 other countries and regions are attending the show, which is jointly hosted by the Chinese Florist Association and the Guangdong government.
