Fifth China-Russia Expo opens in Ekaterinburg to promote cooperation

The fifth China-Russia Expo opened in Russia’s fourth-largest city, Ekaterinburg, on July 9.

With the theme “New beginning, new opportunities and new future,” the annual event set up five commercial side-exhibition sectors in the fields of interconnectivity, equipment manufacturing, service and trade, modern agriculture and people-to-people bond.

The expo offers a comprehensive platform for in-depth cooperation between the two countries.

A total of 27 business events are scheduled to take place during the expo, including an economic roundtable, the fourth summit of the Association of Sino-Russian Technical Universities (ASRTU) and a roundtable on China-Russia intellectual property protection.

The exhibition is approved by both Chinese and Russian governments, and co-organized by China’s Ministry of Commerce, Heilongjiang provincial government and the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation.

The 9th Innoprom Exhibition was held alongside the China-Russia Expo at Yekaterinburg EXPO International Exhibition Center. The two exhibitions will expand industrial cooperation between the two countries through complementary advantages.
