Recently, the People’s Daily launched six full-page special reports on the “Magnificent 70 Years, Struggling for a New Era, the Development Achievement of the Republic Tour - Guangxi” in the form of full-color pictures and texts. Among them, the “Nanning Element” as one of the important contents has aroused wide attention and won praise from all walks of life.
It is reported that Nanning, as the capital of Zhuang minority, has gained the focus of this special report of People’s Daily on its achievements in open development and ecological civilization construction. In the theme of “Potential in Opening-up, Momentum in Opening-up”, this paper introduces in detail the unique “Nanning Channel” formed by the permanent settlement of the China-ASEAN Expo in Nanning to strengthen cooperation between China and ASEAN countries, which has also become a bright business card for Guangxi’s opening-up and development. In recent years, the economic and trade cooperation between China and ASEAN countries has developed vigorously. In 2018, China-ASEAN import and export trade amounted to US$587.87 billion. In the first half of this year, ASEAN countries became China’s second largest trading partner. It can be said that the Expo has brought policy, information, projects and other supports to the development of Guangxi, making Guangxi a frontier and window for China’s open cooperation with ASEAN countries.
