This forum has the main venue and three sub-venues. The forum witnessed the signing of a number of letters of intent and projects.

They included one cooperation agreement and 46 Cooperation Projects, with a total amount reaching 10.163 billion yuan.

The agreement and projects cover such areas as supply chains, nutrition and health, modern agriculture, farm product processing, culture and tourism.

The forum was held in Gansu, because it has in recent years become a model in going in for green industries, making great efforts to build rural homestays and agritainment houses as a driving force for increasing the income of farmers.
