Additionally, a number of major projects and cooperation agreements will also be signed during the symposium. A total of 161 projects, with a total investment of 50.37 billion yuan (US$7.03 billion), will be unveiled at the symposium.

Yin Peiyan, deputy secretary general of the Beijing Municipal Government, said that for more than two decades, the symposium has expanded cooperation between Beijing and Hong Kong, and contributed to the two cities' prosperity.
