The first Sino-Arab economic and trade forum will be held from September 26-30 in Yinchuan, capital of northwest China's Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region.
The annual forum will include meetings, trade shows and an international halal food festival. The forum aims to promote all-round economic cooperation between China and the Arab League. Ningxia is the largest Muslim region in China. It hopes to attract investment from the Arab Leagues's 22 member states.
The forum looks to be an important platform for all-round cooperation between China and the Arab nations, which have a common goal of development.
