The China-ASEAN Expo and the China-ASEAN Business and Investment Summit (hereinafter referred to as "the two meetings") have made positive contributions to serving the national peripheral diplomatic strategy and promoting the development of regional economic integration over the past 15 years.
The Chinese Government has classified the East China Expo as a "key foreign-related forum and exhibition held at the national level", which is considered"has a special international impact" The Summit is currently the highest profile and most influential international conference in the field of business and investment between China and ASEAN countries.
From today, we take you through a combination of virtual studio and field interviews to understand how the "two sessions" can promote international trade and investment facilitation, help the "Belt and Road" construction, and drive the open development of Guangxi.
In 2004, the first "two conferences" were successfully held in Nanning. From the 1st to the 14th edition, a total of 67 leaders of China and ASEAN countries and more than 2,900 ministerial dignitaries have converged on consensus and dovetailed development at the East Expo, and the FTA investment and trade facilitation has advanced from the government level to the enterprise level, which in turn has benefited ordinary people.
For us, it is more convenient to fly to ASEAN countries and cheaper to buy ASEAN goods in Nanning.
For example, Vietnamese dragon fruit, in 2004, it was still a high-grade fruit in the Nanning market, selling for more than 20 yuan per catty, while now the price of a catty is only about 4 yuan.
