The 19th China-ASEAN Expo (CAEXPO), scheduled for Sept 16 to 19 in Nanning, capital of South China's Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, has attracted a total of 1,653 enterprises to its offline event.
At the same time, the online expo has attracted the participation of more than 2,000 enterprises. During the expo, more than 80 investment and trade promotion activities and 21 high-level forums will be held online and offline to deepen China-ASEAN cooperation in economy, trade and other fields, according to a briefing conference held in Nanning on Thursday.
The expo will spotlight the theme -- "Sharing RCEP New Opportunities, Building a Version 3.0 China-ASEAN Free Trade Area" -- to consolidate high-level dialogue platforms, improve professional cooperation platforms, and promote multi-field cooperation in order to make new contributions to building a closer China-ASEAN community with a shared future, said Wu Zhengping, head of the trade development bureau of China's Ministry of Commerce.
Malaysia, as the Country of Honor, will also offer a series of activities.
Since the first China-ASEAN Expo was held in 2004, the event has actively built a platform for ASEAN enterprises to enter the Chinese market.
