The 12th Belt and Road Eco-Agriculture and Food Safety Forum will be held on Nov. 6 in Shanghai, authorities said.
The forum, co-sponsored by the State Administration for Market Regulation, the Chinese People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries and the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, is scheduled during the second China International Import Expo from Nov. 5 to 10.
Under the theme "Expand food import, enrich people's lives," the event aims at enhancing international cooperation in food and farm produce, facilitating the high-quality development of the industry, and providing development opportunities for people from home and abroad.
The forum will invite government officials from China and the world, as well as representatives from international organizations, associations, chambers of commerce and enterprises worldwide.
