At the third China (Huai'an) International Food Expo held in Huai'an October 15-17, multiple quality Huai'an agricultural products were displayed, showing the distinctive "Huaian flavor" to the world.

Over 336 renowned food enterprises participated in the exhibition, including 94 overseas enterprises from 24 countries and regions.

A cloud platform integrating cloud exhibition, cloud conference and cloud connection was also built, attracting 448 exhibitors and over three million professional visitors.

During the expo, Huaian introduced 25 food industry projects with investment totaling 24.1 billion yuan, including seven foreign-invested projects with investment totaling 969 million U.S. dollars.

Huai'an has also launched pilot projects to help local people to relieve poverty by involving them in business related to agricultural product production.

In 2018, the Lianshui County in Huai'an took the lead to open the sunshine poverty relief supermarket, offering help in starting a business, employment, charity and consulting, and displaying information on development projects, skill training and job hunting.

The supermarket has provided more smart solutions to help people relieve poverty, said Guo Yajun, a poverty relief official from Chenshi Town of Lianshui County.

Under the guidance of the supermarket, Guo has helped a family of three apply for a small loan and start a chicken raise business. The family has now kept 3,000-odd chickens and dozens of sheep, realizing 100,000-odd yuan of annual income. (Edited by Gu Shanshan with Xinhua Silk Road, gushanshan.1987@163.com)
