Beijing (VNA) – The 14th China–ASEAN
Expo (CAEXPO) and the China–ASEAN Business and Investment Summit (CABIS) will
be held from September 12–15 in Nanning city, capital city of China’s Guangxi
Zhuang Autonomous Region.

At a press conference in Beijing on July 10, Chinese Deputy Minister of
Commerce Qian Keming said that this year’s CAEXPO will have the theme of
“Jointly Building the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, Promoting Regional
Economic Integration with Tourism.”

CAEXPO has well served as a bridge boosting
economic and trade cooperation between China and ASEAN, Qian said, adding that
China remained ASEAN’s largest trade partner with total bilateral trade
turnover reaching 452.2 billion USD in 2016 and 195.6 billion USD in the first
five months of 2017.

The Deputy Minister also added that China and
ASEAN have also fostered their cooperative ties in infrastructure and
investment as well as regional economic integration. 

Zhang Xiaoqin, Vice Governor of Guangxi Zhuang
Autonomous Region, said this year marks the 50th founding
anniversary of ASEAN and the year of China-ASEAN tourism cooperation, hoping
that it will help further promote cooperation potential between the two sides.

The annual event is expected to draw over
10,000 visitors and feature 80 trade networking activities.-VNA
