Covering 30,000 square meters, the exhibitions will showcase the countries' development and achievements in trade and investment.
A China Pavilion will be set up this year to honor the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China and demonstrate the economic and social development, as well as opportunities in the new era.
