Chinese President Xi Jinping sent a congratulatory letter to the seventh China-Eurasia Expo, which opened Monday in Urumqi, capital of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. 

President Xi said Eurasia is filled with vitality and potential and is a key area for building international cooperation through the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). In recent years, Xinjiang has given full play to its regional advantages to advance the building of the core area of the Silk Road Economic Belt and promote interconnectivity, mutually beneficial cooperation and common development between China and Eurasian countries, with positive results being achieved, Xi said.

He stressed that China is willing to join hands with other countries to advocate the Silk Road spirit, which includes peace and cooperation, openness and inclusiveness, mutual learning as well as shared benefits, with the China-Eurasia Expo being a platform.

Meanwhile, China is ready to work with other countries to pursue high-standard and sustainable development that benefits the people, and explore new spheres for Eurasian cooperation, elevate the cooperation to new levels, and promote common development and prosperity, Xi added.

Themed "Extensive consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits cooperation for future," the seventh China-Eurasia Expo is co-hosted by the Ministry of Commerce, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, and the People's Government of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.  

Covering an exhibition area of 40,000 square meters, the expo has set up three zones featuring themes including investment cooperation and commodity trade. Nearly 17,000 exhibits of enterprises from 32 countries and regions are to be shown online. The expo will be held both online and offline.
