THE Philippines will participate as an exhibitor in the 13th China-Asean Expo, which is scheduled to take place in Nanning, the capital of southern China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous region, next month (Sept 23-26) focused on infrastructure construction and equipment supply.
“Yes we have plans . . . We will have exhibits from the Philippines,” the Trade and Industry Secretary Ramon Lopez confirmed to The Manila Times.
The Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (Citem), the export marketing authority of the DTI, will organize the Philippine stall at the event.
