The 3rd Beibu Gulf (Danzhou, Hainan) Tourism and Food Exposition kicked off on June 5 in Danzhou City, south China’s Hainan Province. Food from 17 countries around the world is on display at the event, attracting many domestic and foreign visitors.

Paying particular attention to the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), a Silk Road-themed pavilion and international food street were set up at the exposition for the first time to highlight distinctive characteristics of the food cultures in the countries along BRI routes.
