HARBIN, Aug. 16 (Xinhua) -- Representatives from at least 400 wood companies gathered in the city of Mudanjiang in northeast Heilongjiang Province as the 5th China-Russia International Wood Expo opened Tuesday.

The expo will not only speed up local economic growth, but also promote over-all cooperation in foreign trade, said Zhang Jingchuan, the Communist Party chief of Mudanjiang.

As one of the country's big four wood expos, it attracts exhibitors from Russia, Germany, Finland, Sweden, Canada, Japan and the Republic of Korea.

The expo has 1,100 standard booths covering an area of 20,000 square meters to showcase finished products, home furnishing products, wood machinery, and forest food.

First launched in 2005, the expo has transformed itself from a local event to a China-Russia co-organized one. Over the past four sessions, an estimated 400,000 people have visited and 14 billion yuan (2.2 billion U.S. dollars) worth of deals have been inked.
