Ms. Abla­hat said that the 1st China Eurasian suc­cess­fully held last year wit­nessed won­der­ful events and re­mark­able eco­nomic and trade achieve­ments. A for­eign trade vol­ume of $ 5.56 bil­lion was achieved at the event, for­eign eco­nomic and tech­no­log­i­cal co­op­er­a­tion projects worth $ 898 mil­lion were con­cluded and 178 do­mes­tic co­op­er­a­tion projects signed with a to­tal in­vest­ment of 185.056 bil­lion Yuan.
