Following the principle of "Consultation, Contribution and Shared Benefits", guests had extensive discussions on issues, such as long term growth of the BRI, investment and cooperation, trade facilitation, and imports expansion.


The expo successfully fulfilled its role as a powerful platform for exchanges and cooperation between China and Central and Eastern European countries with results that outperformed expectations.


525 enterprises from 17 Central and Eastern European countries, Germany, Russia and other countries participated in the exhibition, attracting 4,412 buyers from all over the country. Deals on hundreds of investment and cooperation projects were inked during the event.

The projects mainly come from 21 countries and regions including Indonesia, Singapore, Germany, Japan, the UK and the US, covering intelligent manufacturing, auto parts, equipment manufacturing, digital economy, mining, health care and other fields.


As the China-CEEC Expo becomes a golden business card for Ningbo, the city will further integrate its cultural tourism development into the BRI, and develop itself into an important platform for China to deepen cooperation with the rest of the world.
