In front of a water-foam fire fighting vehicle, a senior official of Dongguan Yongqiang Vehicles Manufacturing Co., Ltd. told the reporter, “Our products of fire fighting have been sold throughout China and more than 30 foreign countries and regions around the world, most of which are along the Maritime Silk Road. The overseas sales volume accounts for about half of company’s total sales of the fire fighting products.”
As the Belt and Road Initiative has been carried out in a deep-going way, opportunities have been created for countries and regions along the Maritime Silk Road, which also brings business opportunities for China’s construction machinery enterprises to explore the international market.
Infrastructure is a priority for the cooperation between countries along the Maritime Silk Road, and more and more China’s enterprises take part in the infrastructure construction in the MSR countries and regions. Therefore, the Engineering Machinery Exhibition and the Information Technology Exhibition have drawn much attention at the 2016 MSR-EXPO.
