Because of the mobility limitations, the day had a peculiarity that Chilean businesses took part by streaming from Chile through a huge screen in the room. Each started with welcoming remarks through the big screen. Followed by the ambassador, there present, who also had words of welcome and thanks to the attendee. After the presentation, a cooking show was held of typical Chinese dishes with Chilean pork as main actor. After the presentation, the guest were able to taste the dishes prepared by the chef.

The whole act was streamed, so Chilepork as well as Chilean businesses could watch it live. This innovative initiative is a further demonstration that Opera Global Business is able to adapt to whatever external obstacle and ib this way continue to help the international promotion plan for its clients.
