The organizer stated this at a press briefing on Monday that the fair, with the theme: “New Start, New Opportunities, and New Accomplishments,” will invite six African countries, including Kenya and Rwanda as guests of honor.
So far, over 9,700 people have signed up for the expo, including those from African embassies in China, international organizations, as well as Chinese enterprises.
During the expo, 12 forums, economic and trade talks would be held in key and emerging areas of China-Africa economic and trade cooperation, including cooperation on food and agricultural products, medical and health development, infrastructure and financial cooperation.
