On May 12th, CRSC-hosted exhibition highlighting achievements of China high-speed railway, satellite navigation system and nuclear technology received a bunch of distinguished guests who just stepped out of their conference room of Seventh Ministerial Conference of China-Arab States Cooperation Forum. Accompanied by Mr. Zhou Zhiliang, Chairman of CRSC, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, Qatari Foreign Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim, Arab League Secretary-General Nabil Elaraby and foreign ministers from 21 Arab League member states visited the exhibition. After having a close look of the exhibition and obtaining a full understanding of China’s technological achievements and rich experience in high-speed railway construction, the delegates showed great interests in further communication and cooperation with CRSC.
Chairman Zhou Zhiliang was interviewed at the scene by reporters from both at home and abroad. “Three years ago when we first promoted China high-speed railway in Arab states, they had little knowledge of our technology. However, nowadays, people in Arab states have recognized Chinese technology and Chinese brand. More and more entities are reaching out to us for cooperation thanks to the development of China-Arab cooperation in the past years. It is hoped that more Arab states would get to know China’s cutting edge technologies of infrastructure construction through the platform of Ministerial Conference of China-Arab Cooperation Forum, so that China and Arab states would cooperate in a broader strategic sense,” said Mr. Zhou.
