YANCHENG, China, Oct. 29, 2021 /Xinhua-AsiaNet/--

To consolidate the achievements of China-Korea economic and trade cooperation 
and further promote China-Korea (Yancheng) Industrial Park, the 3rd China-Korea 
Trade and Investment Expo (CKTIE) will be held at the Jiangsu Yancheng 
International Convention and Exhibition Center from October 29 to November 2. 
This year's expo theme is "Smooth industrial circulation, opening up 
cooperation and win-win". It invites government agencies such as the Ministry 
of Commerce of China and the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy of South 
Korea, foreign envoys to China, executives of Top 500 companies and industries, 
experts and scholars, and media representatives to attend the meeting, 
according to the organizing committee of China-Korea Trade and Investment Expo.

A total of 3 exhibition areas, including the China-Korea Industrial Park Image 
Area, China-Korea Trade Exhibition Area and Investment Area, are set up on the 
site, with a scale of nearly 30,000 square meters, with 105 booths and 121 
exhibiting companies, including Siemens, SK, DYK, Lafarge and other top 500 
companies in the world, as well as South Korea's Haesung Semiconductor, IA and 
other industry top 10 companies.

Yancheng and South Korea are close neighbors, separated by a strip of water. 
Yancheng is the city where Jiangsu and South Korea have the closest cooperation 
and the most concentrated Korean-funded enterprises. The joint construction of 
a China-Korea Industrial Park is an important content of the initiative of the 
leaders of China and South Korea and China-South Korea Free Trade Agreement. On 
June 1, 2015, the China-Korea Free Trade Agreement was signed, and Yancheng was 
identified as a local cooperation city. 

To deepen the economic and trade exchanges between China and South Korea, 
Yancheng began bidding for the China-Korea Trade and Investment Expo at the end 
of 2018, and successfully held the 1st CKTIE in 2019, and the 2nd CKTIE in 
2020, continuously consolidating and expanding the achievements of exchanges 
and cooperation with South Korea. In the previous two expos, the total number 
of exhibitors and participants exceeded 50,000, the turnover of trade 
intentions was nearly 3.5 billion dollars, 167 industrial projects were signed, 
and the total investment exceeded 140 billion.
