URUMQI - The first China-Eurasia Expo that concluded Sept 5 in Urumqi, capital of Northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, has clinched trade and technical cooperation contracts worth about $130 billion, expo organizer said.
Among all contracts, $5.5 billion are clinched between Chinese and foreign companies, while $124 billion are among Chinese companies, the organizer said.
About 50,000 officials and business people from China and about 30 countries, regions and international organizations attended the trade fair, which also attracted an audience of more than 300,000 people.
