The China-ASEAN Expo (CAEXPO) is co-sponsored by ministries/department of commerce or industry and trade of China and the 10 ASEAN member states as well as the ASEAN Secretariat, and is organized by the People’s Government of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. Having been successfully concluded for 14 sessions so far, the CAEXPO has grown into an event of special international influence and plays an important role in promoting the China-ASEAN friendly cooperation and building the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road.

Innovation will be a highlight of the 15th CAEXPO. We will upgrade manufacturing sector in China and ASEAN countries by popularizing advanced information and smart technologies, strengthening the bilateral cooperation in industrial capacity and equipment manufacturing. The 15th CAEXPO will see more high-tech products been showcased and more promotion and business matching events for mobilizing and supporting Chinese leading enterprises to invest in ASEAN countries. All this will conduce to developing better integrated industrial and value chains that will boost growth and deliver more widely shared benefits within the China-ASEAN region and beyond.
