The second China-Africa Economic Trade Expo will be held in Changsha, Hunan Province’s capital, from September 26 to 29, with a mix of online and offline events.
The expo, with the theme “New Start, New Opportunities, and New Accomplishments,” will invite six African countries, including Kenya and Rwanda, as honorary guests, according to the organizers during a press conference on Monday.
Over 9,700 people have registered for the expo so far, including representatives from African embassies in China, international organizations, and Chinese businesses.
12 forums, economic and trade talks will be held during the exhibition in major and rising areas of China-Africa economic and trade cooperation, such as food and agricultural products, medical and health development, infrastructure, and finance cooperation.
Against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic, the expo would build a cloud platform to hold online conferences, exhibitions and transactions.
In addition, a report on China-Africa economic and trade relations is expected to be released at the expo.
