Since its establishment in 2005, seven sessions of the forum have been successfully held. It has played an important role in promoting mutual understanding between Asian and European countries, as well as improving the development level of Shaanxi's export-oriented economy.
During this year's forum, a total of 25 activities will be held, including the opening ceremony, 10 sub-forums, and 14 supporting activities, which will deepen economic and trade cooperation between Shaanxi and Asia and Europe.
As the permanent site of the event, Xi'an is making great efforts to build an international metropolis of Asia-Europe cooperation and exchange.
The event has helped Xi'an accumulate experience in holding large-scale international conferences. It has played an important role in establishing Xi'an’s city image, demonstrating its economic construction achievements and promoting international cultural exchanges.
At the 2017 Euro-Asia Economic Forum, Xi'an signed cooperation agreements with San Jose, Uruguay, Umea, Sweden, and Saint Petersburg, Russia, creating new opportunities for urban construction and exchange development.
