In order to alleviate the severe impact on international trade caused by the COVID-19 epidemic and help Chinese foreign trade companies expand their sales, the China (Guangxi)-Africa & Middle East Digital Trade Week will be held online globally from June 29 to July 5.
According to a press conference held in Nanning, Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region on June 16, the event will focus on products made in Guangxi, aiming to display and promote high-quality Guangxi products to foreign customers, help Guangxi foreign trade enterprises enter the Middle East and African markets, and promote economic and trade exchanges and cooperation between Guangxi and Middle East and African countries.

It is expected to attract more than 10,000 overseas merchants to participate in online procurement consultations.
An online live-streaming promotion will be held daily for sectors like medical rehabilitation, hardware and building materials, ceramics and home improvement, light industry and daily necessities, automobiles and parts, construction machinery and power equipment, and agricultural food. Anyone interested can also partake in one-on-one online negotiations through the video connection.
