Singapore will be the focus of a slew of events at the upcoming 11th China-Asean Expo in Guangxi region's capital Nanning this September.
As Singapore is the "Country of Honour" this year, a series of forums and dialogues tailored to the city-state have been planned, including a roundtable between Singaporean leaders and chief executives of Chinese companies, officials said at a press briefing yesterday.
High-level leaders including Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong are expected to attend the expo, which will run from Sept 16 to 19. The annual fair promotes trade and investment between China and Asean, where trade volume between both rose 11 per cent to US$444 billion (S$550 billion) last year.
Yesterday, Chinese officials also highlighted areas of potential growth for both Singapore and Asean firms under the expo's 2014 theme of building a maritime silk route of the 21st century.
