The 2020 Zhejiang Agricultural Fair was held at the Zhejiang New Metropolitan Exhibition Center in the provincial capital of Hangzhou from Nov 20 to 24.
The fair, occupying a total area of 30,000 square meters, featured high-quality agricultural products from nearly 900 exhibitors from the province and beyond. More than 100 promotional business events, a record number, were held during the fair.
This year's fair also featured a dedicated online exhibition platform, which was used by 1,137 agriculture businesses. Another highlight was the strong presence of commercial livestreamers promoting various agricultural products at the expo's exhibition booths.
The fair's agricultural equipment exhibition zone showcased Zhejiang's widespread application of digital technologies in its agricultural sector in the form of autonomous tractors and rice transplanters using China's homemade Beidou Navigation Satellite System and 5G networks.
