ASEAN and China Hold 11th Expo to Enhance Trade

NANNING, 18 September 2014 – The opening ceremony of the 11th China – ASEAN Expo (CAEXPO) and China – ASEAN Business and Investment Summit (CABIS) was  held on 16 September in the City of Nanning, Guangxi Province, China, with the theme “Jointly Build Maritime Silk Road of the 21st Century.”

This year’s opening ceremony was graced by the First-ranked Vice Premier of the State Council of the People's Republic of China, H.E Mr. Zhang Gaoli and Prime Minister H. E Lee Hsien Loong representing Singapore as this year’s Country of Honor. In his keynote speech, H.E. Zhang Gaoli emphasized the cultural heritage that ASEAN and China share.

Based on good neighborliness and the spirit of friendship, H.E. Zhang Gaoli reiterated China’s proposal on jointly building the Maritime Silk Road by strengthening cross-border trade; building sub-regional cooperation; and enhancing people-to-people exchanges, among others, to achieve greater peace, mutual development and prosperity in the region. Upgrading the ASEAN – China FTA was also cited as one of the essential foundations for the Regional Economic Comprehensive Partnership (RCEP).

The 11th CAEXPO and related events will run from 16-18 September. The Expo is expected to draw 2,330 enterprises who will showcase their products and services at 4,600 booths. ASEAN merchandises including food, fruits and agro-based products, jewelry and ornaments, decorative items, and wooden furniture are on exhibition at the Expo. Education and healthcare services as well as investment projects are also exhibited to further enhance trade in services and investments between ASEAN Member States (AMS) and China.

CAEXPO, CABIS and related events are convened annually by the Ministry of Commerce of China, Guangxi-Zhuang Autonomous Region, AMS and the ASEAN Secretariat. The 11th CAEXPO marks the first year of the Diamond Decade of the ASEAN-China cooperation. The events are considered valuable mechanisms to promote friendship and trade links between AMS and China.
