  On June 15, the Seminar on Investment in Latin America & China-LAC Business Summit Promotion, hosted by the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, and organized by the Chinese Chamber of International Commerce and Heilongjiang Provincial Council for the Promotion of International Trade, was held in the International Convention Center of Haerbin.

  Minister for Economic Planning and Development, Deputy Education Minister, President of the Normal University, General Manager of the Export Bank of the Dominican Republic, mayor of St. Paul-St.Sebastian City, as well as commercial councilor of Columbia, Panama, and Uruguay attended the meeting, in which they briefed on the trade and investment policy and business environment of their respective countries, introduced the preparations for the 12th China-LAC Business Summit, and mobilized more businesses on-spot to participate. Over 80 delegates from relevant local departments of counties and prefectures, colleges, and businesses from our province also attended the meeting.

  Despite the vast distance between our province and the Latin American and Caribbean countries, we are not strangers to each other. The provincial government attaches great importance to cooperation with Latin American countries. Over the years, through mutual visits of delegations, the hosting of trade events, and the establishment of steady exchange channels, a pattern of cooperation that is all-dimensional and multi-faceted has taken shape. Our province used to be one of the organizers of the 2nd China-LAC Business Summit. Since the summit in 2008, our province has held Latin America and Caribbean-themed trade events for 11 consecutive years, carried out practical cooperation in economic, cultural, and scientific areas and achieved fruitful results.

  China-LAC Business Summit was initiated by the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade in November 2007. As the first institutionalized platform aimed at promoting economic and trade cooperation with Latin America, it is hailed as a flagship in China-Latin America practical cooperation. At the beginning of 2015, the Summit was included into the “Plan on China-Latin America Cooperation (2015-2019)” , thus becoming a sub-forum under China-CELAC Forum. From November 1 to 3, 2018, the China-LAC Business Summit will be held in Zhuhai.
