Lithuania is planning to open a trading house for Lithuanian products in China‘s city of Ningbo. The exhibition hall would be used for Lithuanian businesses to present their products, to look for trading partners, to organize various meetings and events.
The issue was discussed between the Ningbo municipality and Lithuania’s Economy Vice-Minister Rasa Noreikienė during a visit to China last week. It was agreed that Ningbo municipality would provide premises for the purpose free of charge for 2 years. The final decision will be made after consultations with the business community.
Ningbo, which has a population of about 9 million, is the second-largest seaport in the world. Other countries also have exposition halls in the city.
During her visit to China, Noreikienė also met with Chinese Deputy Minister of Commerce Zhong Shan with whom she discussed the need to strengthen cooperation between the two countries in fields of innovation development, trade, especially in food products, development opportunities for logistics projects.
