This year the CPC Hunan Provincial Committee and the Hunan Provincial People’s Government has set goals of lifting 600,000 people out of poverty in 2019 and by the end of next year, end poverty in the province. The trade fair theme is “Agricultural Products Branding Development to Promote Poverty Alleviation”.

Seventy-eight cooperation agreements worth more than 1.8 billion CNY were inked at the opening ceremony. This will help inject new impetus into Hunan poverty alleviation efforts. 



The trade fair lasts until July 30. One promotional area and 13 exhibition areas were set up to showcase thousands of high-quality agricultural products produced by more than 600 companies. The exhibits include canola oil, tea oil, black tea, Anhua dark tea, fruits, vegetables, bamboo products, aquatic products, grain, Chinese herbal medicines, and livestock products. Hunan’s achievements in industrial and e-commerce poverty alleviation are also on display. Nine agricultural products promotional activities will be held.

Hunan has clear advantages in such agricultural industries as grain, oil, tea, vegetables, fruits, livestock, aquatic products, Chinese herbal medicines and bamboo products. The agricultural products in lower-income areas have local characteristics.
