An international cooperation and promotion conference between Taiyuan, Shanxi province, and Turkiye convened in Istanbul on Thursday, attracting more than 100 representatives from nine enterprises in Taiyuan and more than 60 from Turkiye.

Wei Tao, secretary of the Taiyuan Municipal Party Committee, said that 1,000 years ago Shanxi merchants engaged in trade with their Turkish counterparts and that today's China-Europe freight trains present boundless business prospects for enterprises.

Wei Xiaodong, consul general of China in Istanbul, remarked that Taiyuan, an ancient city steeped in history and resources, is evolving into a vibrant inland city marked by openness and inclusivity, and cooperation between two countries holds great promise.

Salih Koca, a representative of Turkiye, noted that China and Turkiye will engage in multifaceted cooperation and said that this conference was a pivotal opportunity to advance mutual amicable relations.

During the gathering, Chen Junfeng, director of the management committee of the Taiyuan Xishan Demonstration Zone, outlined the vast potential and bright prospects for cooperation in cultural exchanges, commerce and other domains between Taiyuan and cities in Turkiye.

During the event, Taiyuan formalized a friendly cooperation pact with Nevsehir, Turkiye, alongside multiple enterprises from both regions that signed collaboration agreements.
