A number of agreements were signed halfway through the China-Eurasia Expo in Urumqi, capital of northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.
A total of 15 telecom operators from eight countries signed a cooperation deal at the fifth China-Eurasia Expo, pledging to enhance interconnectivity in telecommunications and jointly build an "information expressway."
Chen Lidong, an official with China's Ministry of Information Technology, said that the "information expressway" will advance the development of the Belt and Road Initiative.
Also at the expo, lawyers from the Chinese mainland and Hong Kong set up a legal service association.
A technology company from Xinjiang signed a deal with UnionPay International and a commercial bank in Kazakhstan for cross-border payment service.
Delegates from 57 countries and regions and six global organizations attended the expo, along with 3,500 professional purchasers, organizers said.
The expo will conclude on Sunday. Endi
