Lishui in East China's Zhejiang province held an online promotion event on May 8, to promote local agricultural products to overseas Chinese in Germany.

Four agri-product companies participated in the event, promoting their signature and newly developed products to overseas consumers.

"We hope that the good products from our hometown can enter the European market more after the pandemic," said a participant.

Overseas Chinese who participated in the online event also talked about their experience in facing the COVID-19 pandemic and promoting the resumption of work and production in Germany. Most of them are engaged in catering, supermarkets and logistics. During the outbreak, they changed and expanded their sales channels and turned the crisis into an opportunity.

An overseas Chinese who runs a supermarket in Germany expanded the online distribution business during the pandemic and achieved sales worth 90,000 euros ($97,430).
