Recently, the 16th China-ASEAN Expo (the CAEXPO) and China-ASEAN Business and Investment Summit (the CABIS) concluded in Nanning. During the CABIS, 45 projects were introduced to Nanning China South City, including China-ASEAN Digital Trade Hub Service Platform and Echronos Digital Center, with total cooperation amount of about 20 billion yuan. Over a hundred cross-border enterprises were organized to establish Cross-border Trade Committee of Guangxi International Chamber of Commerce. The upstream and downstream production and marketing resources were thus successfully integrated. Agreements of three billion yuan for importing and purchasing ASEAN agricultural products were signed as well.
In addition, the CABIS also facilitated the launching of a number of cooperation projects between Beijing Zhongguancun Unicorn Enterprises and Guangxi and advanced the implementation of growth plan for ten gazelle enterprises of Guangxi. During the CABIS, the China-ASEAN Digital Trade Hub, the New International Land-Sea Corridor Digital Trade Hub, the China-ASEAN Cross-border Logistics Management Platform and the China-ASEAN Fruit Supply Chain Management Platform were inaugurated. The “Action Plan on Trade and Investment Cooperation of 13 Provinces and Cities along the New International Land-Sea Trade Corridor of the Belt & Road Initiative” was signed and the “Initiative for the Construction of the New International Land-Sea Trade Corridor by China-Singapore Business Community” was released. In the future, the CAEXPO and the CABIS will continue to build high-level dialogue platforms and professional cooperation platforms with distinct themes and distinctive features, smooth the “Nanning Channel”, and vigorously advance upgrading and development, making greater contributions to the construction of a closer China-ASEAN community with a shared future.
