At the exhibition, dealers in Beijing, Shanghai and other places extended olive branches to Anura, and the tea he distributed quickly opened up the situation in the Chinese market and gained a firm foothold.

After tasting the sweetness for the first time, Anura became a frequent visitor of the South China Expo, and he signed up early for each South China Expo.

Chinese Ambassador to Bangladesh Li Jiming said that Bangladesh is the first country in South Asia to sign an intergovernmental agreement on the "Belt and Road" with China. People and senior officials have also attended the South China Expo many times.

As China's zero-tariff treatment for 98% of Bangladesh's tax items takes effect, Bangladesh is expected to With further expansion of exports to China, delicacies such as Bangladeshi shad are expected to appear on the tables of Chinese people."

Create a prosperous and bright future together

In 2019, Zeshan, a 34-year-old Pakistani electrical engineer, saw the continuous upgrading of China-Pakistan industrial cooperation and the large talent gap, so he voluntarily applied to Kunming University of Science and Technology to study for a doctorate. "There are opportunities everywhere in China, and I believe there will be unlimited possibilities here in the future."

Against the background of a century of changes and a century of epidemics, the importance of mutually beneficial cooperation between China and South Asian countries has become increasingly prominent, and the potential for cooperation is huge.

Walking into the exhibition hall of the South China Expo, the international freight exhibition area is particularly lively, attracting more than 300 domestic and foreign logistics companies to participate in the exhibition. The person in charge of a logistics company in Shenzhen said that China, South Asia and Southeast Asia are currently the fastest growing regions in the world. RCEP (Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement) came into effect, China-Laos Railway and other major infrastructures opened, and the volume of trade in goods between regions surge.

Yang Huichuan, vice president of China Biotechnology Co., Ltd., said that this exhibition hopes to show the production technology and products of Chinese blood products to the world, and also expects that the company's products will be sold to South and Southeast Asian markets in the future.

Yunnan, where the China-South Expo is held, has a long history of cooperation with South Asian countries. Wang Yubo, governor of Yunnan Province, said in his speech at the opening ceremony that Yunnan has accelerated the construction of China's radiation center for South Asia and Southeast Asia, and its exchanges and cooperation with South Asian countries have continued to expand. The total trade volume has tripled in the past 10 years, and the six pairs of sister city routes basically cover South Asian countries. The capital and an important tourist city, the China-South Asia Technology Transfer Center has facilitated the landing of more than 80 international projects. Currently, there are more than 2,000 South Asian students studying in Yunnan.
