On 29 June 2023, the third China-Africa Economic and Trade Expo (CAETE) opened in Changsha, Hunan Province, co-hosted by the Ministry of Commerce and the Hunan Provincial People's Government.

In March 2013, during his visit to Africa, President Xi first put forward the concept of a genuine and sincere policy towards Africa and the correct concept of righteousness and benefit. Over the past ten years, regardless of the changes in the international climate, China and Africa have always been sincere, friendly, united and cooperative, with closer high-level exchanges, expanding scale of cooperation and continuous expansion of cooperation areas, forming a community of shared destiny and win-win cooperation and interests, and achieving fruitful results for the benefit of the Chinese and African peoples.
Eight guest-of-honour countries, including Benin, Congo (DRC), Madagascar, Malawi, Morocco, Mozambique, Nigeria and Zambia, set up national pavilions to showcase their national images and characteristics, and a large number of special commodities from African countries made a splendid appearance.
