Central and Eastern Europe Expo land in Ningbo for the 5th time
Updated:2018-07-12 17:34:00

The 7th Summit of China-Central and Eastern Europe was held recently in Sofia, Bulgaria. After the meeting, the "China-Central and Eastern European Countries Cooperation Sofia Outline" was issued, which proposed that the 5th China-Central and Eastern European Countries Investment and Trade Expo be held in Ningbo in June 2019.
At present, the Ningbo 16+1 Economic and Trade Cooperation Demonstration Zone has been launched. Not far from the Sofia Chinese Cultural Center, the 2018 Ningbo Creative Culture Exhibition has just come to an end. As the first Chinese cultural center unveiled and operated by Central and Eastern European countries, it is also the first overseas Chinese cultural center that Zhejiang province participates in its construction. The Sofia Chinese Cultural Center is jointly built by the city and is responsible for daily operations.
From the expo to the demonstration area to the cultural center, the elements of Ningbo shine in Sofia. In recent years, benefiting from the port location and opening policy, Ningbo has been at the forefront of the country in cooperation with Central and Eastern European countries. Statistics show that in 2017, the trade volume between Ningbo and Central and Eastern European countries was US$2.92 billion, up 23.5% year-on-year, and the national proportion increased from 4% to 4.3%, of which imports increased by 74.6% year-on-year. In 2017, the cargo volume of Ningbo Zhoushan Port and Central and Eastern Europe's four ports reached 248,800 TEUs, a year-on-year increase of 37.6%. Since 2018, Ningbos import and export volume to Central and Eastern Europe has exceeded 7 billion yuan in just four months, a year-on-year increase of 26.7%, of which imports were 1.12 billion yuan, an increase of 64.9%.
In addition, the city builds a new platform for the full opening of Central and Eastern European countries. In just a few years, it not only gave birth to the country's largest Central and Eastern European commodity distribution center, the country's first inspection and quarantine test area for trade facilitation, and established the first Central and Eastern Europe Expo Cooperation Bureau. Ningbo is also the first city in the country with a sister city in each Central and Eastern European country. The exchanges and cooperation between the two sides in the fields of economy, trade, tourism and culture are booming.
The person in charge of the Municipal Commerce Commission said that the city will give full play to the comprehensive advantages of cooperation with Central and Eastern European countries, take the 16+1 economic and trade cooperation demonstration zone as the guide, expand the scale of trade cooperation, enhance the level of investment cooperation, and build an important platform for cooperation between Central and Eastern Europe. We will have further systematic practice and innovation, and strive to provide reference for other provinces and cities to cooperate with Central and Eastern European countries, and play an active role in demonstrating and serving the country.
