The 6th China-Russia Expo, which concluded on June 19 in Harbin, capital of Northeast China's Heilongjiang province, witnessed the signing of more than 380 trade contacts worth more than 170 billion yuan ($24.78 billion).
The fair attracted 1,764 businesses from 74 countries and regions and 164 government commercial delegations.
In addition, a total of 23,000 registered business representatives attended the event, a year-on-year increase of 46 percent.
During the five-day trade fair, around 243,000 buyers and visitors attended, with 4,976 overseas attendees participating.
Responding to this year’s expo theme “China-Russia regional cooperation: opportunity, potential, and future”, the China-Russia Comprehensive Strategic Cooperation Collaborative Innovation Center and the China-Russia Scientific Research Achievements Commercialization Center were established during the expo.
Meanwhile, the expo highlighted key China-Russian cooperation projects, such as the CR929 long-range wide-body aircraft manufactured by China-Russia Commercial Aircraft International Co Ltd (CRAIC) and the ARJ21 aircraft -- the Advanced Regional Jet for the 21st Century -- demonstrating the latest features and trends of Sino-Russian cooperation in the new era.
Initiated in 2014, the China-Russia Expo is a prominent platform for promoting economic and trade communications and cooperation between China and Russia.
