JINGXI, China, Sept. 27, 2021 /Xinhua-AsiaNet/--

The 18th China-ASEAN Expo was held in Nanning, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region 
from September 10 to 13. During the expo, Jingxi City signed 5 projects with 
the merchants, with a total investment of more than RMB 29.4 billion, according 
to the Publicity Department of Jingxi City.

At the investment promotion conference of China-ASEAN Expo, the main leaders of 
Jingxi stated that the city would strengthen support for foreign trade and 
local processing enterprises, promote the construction of standard factory 
buildings for commodity processing and the gradual transformation and upgrading 
of mutual trade to local processing, expand the total amount of foreign trade, 
and energetically develop local processing. The city would strive to create a 
first-class government, legal, cultural, market and social environment to 
provide quality services for entrepreneurs.

Jingxi is one of the important land passages connecting southwest China to 
southeast Asia, which borders Vietnam with a 152.5km long border. It has 
Longbang first-level port, Yuexu second-level port and 4 front trade markets. 
In March 2020, the State Council of China approved the establishment of the 
Guangxi Baise Key Development and Opening Pilot Zone, and the role of Jingxi as 
a leading area of the pilot zone. In January 2021, Guangxi approved the 
establishment of the Jingxi Border Economic Cooperation Zone. In recent years, 
Jingxi has done a great job in border trade, poverty alleviation, tourism, and 
urban construction, and has made breakthroughs in border development and 
opening-up. From January to July this year, the total foreign trade volume of 
Jingxi reached RMB 138.3 billion, with a year-on-year increase of 51%.

In the next few years, Jingxi will further implement the "Five Strategies" of 
development and opening-up, rural revitalization, industrial city development, 
holistic tourism, and urban quality improvement. The city will promote the 
high-quality development of the Jingxi Leading Area of Guangxi Baise Key 
Development and Opening Pilot Zone, development of the demonstration and 
leading area of border stability, security, prosperity and wealth, and 
construction of "two districts and one city" as the regional central city of 
China-ASEAN cooperation.
