Ma Lei, director of the Guizhou Provincial Department of Commerce, highlighted that policy opportunities, transportation hubs, and international platforms are the driving forces behind Guizhou's foreign trade development.
Additionally, he expressed his hope for more traders to take advantage of Guizhou's big data opportunities, for more companies to establish their businesses in Guizhou, and for cross-border e-commerce enterprises to promote Guizhou's rural vitalization.
In 2022, Guizhou's trade volume reached 80.12 billion yuan ($11.59 billion), a year-on-year increase of 22.5 percent.
By strengthening trade and investment cooperation with domestic and foreign customers, Guizhou aims to deepen the connection between high-quality market entities and its own advantageous resources.
