Signing cooperation agreements.

Over the years, Shanghai has aided Guizhou's growth, and the two sides have deepened cooperation in industrial cultivation, business and trade, and cultural exchange.

Guizhou's specialty product sales in Shanghai reached 174,800 tons last year, earning 2.544 billion yuan (US$353 million) and benefiting more than 20,000 farmers in the province.

Guizhou specialty items have an excellent reputation in Shanghai and are very appealing to Shanghai citizens, according to Lu Wei, deputy director of the Shanghai government's Cooperation and Exchange Office.

According to Lu, the event will promote green, healthy and safe specialties from Guizhou to Shanghai, as well as ties between Shanghai and Guizhou residents.

Guizhou's beautiful scenery is also being promoted here.

The province is known for its stunning scenery, including the Huangguoshu Waterfall, Xijiang's ethnic Miao minority, and the karst landscape of Libo County and Fanjing Mountain, both of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

It is a popular summer destination due to its cool temperatures during the season.
