The forums will consist of a main forum and six sub-forums, while activities to advance the cooperation in fields including digital economy and health are a new feature this year.
Pavilions are set to be erected to exclusively display imports from the CEEC and other European countries. In addition to traditional consumer goods, the exhibits will also feature those in sectors like machinery and electronics, life health and service trade.
Some internet influencers and diplomats-turned-hosts are set to take part in the expo and promote goods via livestreams.
Meanwhile, the International Consumer Goods Fair will feature both imports and exports.
More than 100 businesses from Zhejiang are going to be invited to attend the fair to showcase their products which can both be sold at home and abroad.
The imports will primarily be from countries including Germany, France, the United States, Russia, Sweden and Japan, and cover fields including leisure, home furnishing, healthcare and food.
The exports exhibited will mainly be kitchenware, bathroom accessories, household articles, gifts and crafts.
The event is set to coincide with the 23rd China Zhejiang Investment and Trade Fair, which will also be held in the city.
Ningbo has seen closer economic and trade ties with the CEEC in recent years. In 2020, imports and exports between Ningbo and the CEEC totaled 29.52 billion yuan ($4.54 billion), a yearly uptick of 3.7 percent.
