The web platform of the 17th China-ASEAN Expo was launched recently in Nanning, capital of south China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

With strict anti-epidemic measures, this year’s expo will be held online and offline from November 27 to 30. Exhibitors and buyers from home and abroad can make presentations, conduct business talks and hold conferences through the online platform, the organiser said.

“The pre-recorded video of the opening remark of Lao PDR Prime Minister will be broadcast at the opening ceremony and our state leader will also take part in the online round-table dialogue between state leader of Lao PDR and CEOs from China,” Consul General of Laos in Nanning Virasac Somphong said.

The expo opening ceremony, summits and high-level forums will be livestreamed in multiple languages on the platform, where a series of online trade and investment promotion activities will also be held.

China’s e-commerce giant Alibaba Group will provide technical support to ensure the safe and smooth operation of the platform.
