First China-Africa economic, trade expo to see over 1,000 African attendees

  • Written by  Jing Yuxin

At least 1,000 African guests and traders will attend the first China-Africa Economic and Trade Expo in Changsha, capital of central China's Hunan province, in June.

The expo, scheduled to be held between June 27 and 29, will include conferences, forums and exhibitions.

"We hope that the African guests can yield good results through the expo," Hunan's deputy governor He Baoxiang said.

A signing ceremony for major economic and trade projects will be held during the expo, with a series of forums concerning agriculture, trade, infrastructure and financing, as well as investment promotions and business negotiation activities, according to the organizing committee.

The expo was launched under the framework of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation.

Hunan's trade volume with African countries totaled $2.8 billion in 2018, surging over 50 percent for the fourth straight year. Contracted investment by Hunan firms in Africa amounted to nearly $1 billion
