BEIJING, September 6 (Itar-Tass) - Changchun in northeast China will attract more and more Russian tourists as the two countries’ economic relations continue to steadily develop, said organizers of the ninth Northeast Asia Investment and Trade Expo that opened there on Friday.
Russia is represented at the fair by companies from the Republic of Tatarstan, the Vologda and Penza regions, the Primorsky Territory and Russia’s Far Eastern regions. The Russian stand demonstrates different consumer goods, mainly foodstuff.
“Today the Day of Russia, a presentation of the Vologda region and a meeting between Russian and Chinese business circles will take place,” an expert at the Russian trade mission in China, Elena Kravtsova, told Itar-Tass.
The Investment and Trade Expo in Changchun has been organized for Northeast Asian countries and neighboring states, including Russia, since 2005. “Cooperation among Northeast Asia nations steadily develops. China and Russia participating in the fair strengthen their economic cooperation,” China Daily quoted a local government official as saying on Thursday.
The fair laid the groundwork for global trade and economic exchanges and cooperation.
It is organized by China’s Ministry of Commerce, National Development and Reform Commission and the Jilin Province government.
The Northeast Asia Investment and Trade Expo will last until September 11.
