NANNING, Oct 18 (Xinhua): The China-Asean education exhibition held in Nanning, capital of south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, has witnessed a growing demand for smart educational equipment, local authorities said.

The event, which concluded on Sunday, set up seven galleries showcasing a great variety of educational equipment covering all ages, as well as providing educational training and consultant services.

Zhang Shan, president of the Guangxi Educational Equipment Industry Association, said this year's fair witnessed a significant increase in innovative enterprises, as well as artificial intelligence and intelligent teaching equipment.

The three-day fair, sponsored by the Nanning city government and the Guangxi branch of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, drew some 300 enterprises from across the country, including many from Beijing, Shanghai, Zhejiang and Guangdong

Meanwhile, a food fair showcasing cuisine from China and Asean opened Friday in Nanning, capital of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, promoting local specialties.

The three-day fair boasted 2,663 varieties of special food, wines and snacks.

Sponsored by the Guangxi Food Industry Association and the Guangxi International Chamber of Commerce, the fair drew some 200 industry insiders and representatives of Thailand's Consulate General, Myanmar's Consulate General and Cambodia's Consulate General in Nanning.

Huang Ribo, vice-chairman of the Guangxi autonomous regional committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, said the fair is of practical significance in broadening sales channels of agricultural products, helping businesses rebound from the COVID-19 fallout, assisting poverty alleviation in rural areas and facilitating development associated with Belt and Road Initiative.

A total of 636 enterprises brought high-quality food and special snacks from Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region as well Guangdong and Yunnan provinces.

Wang Shishi, e-commerce supervisor of a local company named Beijiang Village in Rongshui County, Guangxi, said due to the impact of the epidemic, traditional sales channels of the company's agricultural products were blocked in the first half of the year. The sales have thus become more and more driven by online orders. Farmers hope the food fair can help release more consumption potential and expand their sales channels. - Xinhua
