A presentation of China South City Nanning, the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, was held here on Thursday to attract businesses and products of ASEAN members.

Cheng Chung Hing, vice chairman of the China Chamber of International Commerce, said at the presentation that China South City (CSC) Nanning is a noteworthy logistics and infrastructure project strongly supported by the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region government and Nanning Municipal Government. The total gross floor area of CSC Nanning reached 4.88 million square meters with a total investment of over 1.86 billion U.S. dollars.

Cheng said the objective of CSC Nanning is to establish an integrated world-class trade and logistics city serving the suppliers and purchasers from ASEAN countries effectively, adding that CSC Nanning aims to become the trade and exchange center of China and the ASEAN by means of effective business relationship and resources complementarity.

The China-ASEAN Trade Plaza is under construction in the CSC Nanning, with a total gross floor area of approximately 480,000 square meters. Among the area, 50,000 square meters of exhibition area will be provided to 10 ASEAN countries for a 5-year rent-free period, according to Cheng.

"We expect to build up a display and trade platform for ASEAN specialties in order to draw these products to go to Guangxi and promote them to the China market," he said.
