The first Silk Road International Exposition has opened in the ancient city of Xi’an, the capital of northwest China’s Shaanxi Province. It’s an integral part of the 18th Investment and Trade Forum for Cooperation between East and West China. Countries along the ancient Silk Road have been invited to join the event. The Silk Road Expo aims to boost communication and cooperation in the region.

Over 50 countries and regions including some from Central Asia are showcasing themselves on the largest international stage ever provided at the trade forum.

Xi’an used to be the starting point of the old Silk Road. Today the city is making efforts to deepen communication with many Central Asian countries, as Chinese President Xi Jinping is calling to rebuild a modern Silk Road.

This year’s investment and trade forum contains eight exposition halls with a total area of three hundred thousand square meters, three times that of last year. Local officials say over one hundred thousand merchants are expected to come.
