The preparation for the 19th China-ASEAN Expo scheduled to take place in September, 2022 in Nanning, capital of South China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, is progressing smoothly with demand for booths increasing as ASEAN members actively participate in the expo.

The exhibition will adopt a new innovative model incorporating both online and offline platforms, with a total exhibition area of 102, 000 square meters and 5,400 booths, according to a statement on the expo's official website on Wednesday.
