CHINA – ASEAN EXPOSITION (CAEXPO) 2013

His initiative was welcomed by the ASEAN leaders and was written into the Chairman's Statement released after the Summit. The Chinese Premier also suggested that a China-ASEAN Business and Investment Summit be held simultaneously with the China-ASEAN Expo.

*The CAEXPO Country of Honor

The Country of Honor mechanism was introduced during the 4th CAEXPO in 2007. For each CAEXPO, an ASEAN country acts as the CAEXPO Country of Honor, whose state leader is invited to the event with his/her delegation, to ensure that each CAEXPO will have the attendance of ASEAN state leaders, thus to maintain CAEXPO’s influence in political and diplomatic arenas.
