"I look forward to the second China-Africa Economic and Trade Expo this year." On March 25, the Guinea-Bissau ambassador to China, António Serifo Embaló, who was being invited to Hunan for inspection, had new intentions. "I hope to bring cashew nuts, fish and other seafood products and agricultural products to the Expo this time."
Bring the most distinctive products to Hunan to participate in the Expo
Guinea-Bissau is located in West Africa and its economy is dominated by agriculture, fisheries, and mining. Its main export products are cashew nuts, frozen shrimp, and frozen fish. Among them, the annual output of cashew nuts is 200,000 tons, and the export volume accounts for more than 80% of the total. The quality of cashew nuts ranks first in the world and the largest sales places are India and Vietnam.
"We will bring the most distinctive products to Hunan to participate in the Expo." António Serifo Embaló, Guinea-Bissau’s ambassador to China, said that the second China-Africa Economic and Trade Expo will be held soon and he is very much looking forward to the grand occasion. "We will bring our most distinctive cashew nuts, seafood products, and other agricultural products to the Expo."
Integrate into the Chinese market and seek in-depth cooperation
"In the China-Africa Economic and Trade Cooperation Promotion Innovation Demonstration Park and the Gaoqiao International Commodity Exhibition and Trade Center, I see that Hunan's e-commerce platform, incubation center, and comprehensive service center facilities and conditions are all conducive to the promotion and deepening of cooperation between us." The Ambassador of Guinea-Bissau to China António Serifo Embaló expressed in an interview that he hopes to have further cooperation with Hunan merchants, entrepreneurs and the government in terms of packaging, handling and promotion, so that the products are more suitable for the Chinese market, and more in-depth cooperation could be carried out.
Since the successful holding of the first China-Africa Economic and Trade Expo, the domestic and foreign resources for Africa cooperation have accelerated to gather in Hunan. China-Africa exchanges are in a new period of historical opportunity. Hunan continues to use the second China-Africa Economic and Trade Expo as an "accelerator" for China-Africa economic and trade cooperation, creating a new mechanism for economic and trade cooperation with Africa, a new platform for the implementation of economic and trade initiatives of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation, and a new window for local economic and trade cooperation with Africa. Hunan will further strengthen China-Africa economic and trade cooperation in the new era, and promote the development of China-Africa economic and trade cooperation to a higher level and higher quality.
