The 17th China Changchun International Agriculture and Food Fair (CCIAFF Expo) opened in northeast China's Changchun city on Aug. 17. The 10-day event, which aims to showcase China's rural revitalization strategy, includes an exhibition and a forum inviting experts and scholars in the field to offer advice and suggestions.

The CCIAFF Expo is co-held by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, People's Government of Jilin Province as well as the city government of Changchun. It has been successfully held for 16 times and become one of the most influential agricultural fairs in China, as well as an important platform for Jilin's foreign cooperation and exchanges in the agricultural field.

The output of its agricultural production industry exceeded 560 billion yuan (82 billion U.S. dollars), becoming one of the province's three pillar industries, the other two being automobile and petrochemical engineering.

Focusing on modern agriculture, the expo provides various platforms for products trade and exhibition, industrial demonstration, education, forums and online interaction.
