NANNING, Feb. 15 (Xinhua) -- The ninth China-ASEAN Expo will be held from Sept. 21-25 in Nanning, capital of south China's Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, the secretariat of the expo announced Wednesday.

Zheng Junjian, secretary-general of the China-ASEAN Expo Secretariat, said, with a theme of "cooperation in science and technology," the event will cover five subjects: commodity trade, investment cooperation, advanced technology, service trade and "charming cities."
