(ECNS) -- The Chinese government has always been committed to keeping global industrial and supply chains stable and unfettered and taken various concrete steps to advance international cooperation on industrial and supply chains, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Mao Ning said at a regular press conference on Thursday.
Mao introduced that the first China International Supply Chain Expo (CISCE) will be held from November 28 to December 2 in Beijing.
This is the world’s first national-level expo that focuses on supply chains and an open public platform built by China to help keep global industrial and supply chains stable and functioning, according to Mao.
The first CISCE has five sections, namely smart vehicle, green agriculture, clean energy, digital technology, and healthy life, as well as a Supply Chain Service Exhibition Area, Mao mentioned.
Over 500 Chinese and foreign enterprises and institutions will participate in the expo, including Fortune 500 companies and industry leaders in the global supply chain system, the spokesperson said, adding that their participation fully shows that the stability of global industrial and supply chains is vital to global economic development and it’s what the global community cares deeply about.
Mao remarked that decoupling and supply chains disruption serve no one’s interests and will lead nowhere.
“China is both a beneficiary and a defender of global supply chain integration. We remain committed to high-standard opening up and working with all countries for a safe, stable, smooth, efficient and mutually-beneficial international industrial and supply chain system,” she added.
