Yao Jing, Minister and Deputy Chief of Mission from the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China said, “India and China have a long history of bi-lateral trade. I invite the two countries to “reopen the old Silk and Spice routes. This can be done with modern-day products such agricultural commodities and processed food.”

“China is not only a provider of manufactured goods but also a provider of goodwill. We invite Indian food processers and importers across the board to participate in SIAL China. Indian companies will be very competitive in the Chinese market and we would like to see them develop their presence in China,” added Jing.
