Economic and trade cooperation provides inexhaustible impetus for the development of China-Arab States relations. China-Arab States economic and trade cooperation has maintained the sound momentum in recent years, according to China's Vice Minister of Commerce Qian Keming. In 2018, China-Arab States bilateral trade volume reached 244.3 billion U.S. dollars, up 28 percent year on year; Chinese enterprises have newly signed 35.6 billion U.S. dollar contracts in Arab States, up 9 percent year on year. Going forward, China and Arab States will continue to strengthen alignment in mutual development strategies and contribute to Belt and Road construction together.

China-Arab States Expo is a national comprehensive platform for China and Arab States to build the Belt and Road together and also presents an important opportunity for Ningxia to promote the development of an open economy, said Liu Kewei, vice chairman of the People's Government of Ningxia. Over the past five years, Ningxia's imports and exports have maintained steady growth. During the period, this region utilized 1.06 billion U.S. dollars of foreign direct investment and established 148 enterprises in 30 countries and regions overseas. In the single year of 2018, the outbound direct investment made by the autonomous region hit 500 million U.S. dollars.
