The Vietnamese embassy in Beijing in coordination with the Vietnamese Consulate General in Kunming supported 12 provinces and cities in sending samples of hundreds of typical products to the expo, along with more than 2,000 documents, to popularise their investment, tourism and trade promotions.
This year, the event was held both online and offline due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It aims to strengthen economic and trade cooperation between South Asian countries and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).
Since the first China-South Asia Expo was held in 2013, 89 countries, regions and international organisations have joined in the event.
During this year's event, multiple forums were held.
