Along with the exhibition, six provinces from China and 11 provinces from Romania also staged their own exhibition featuring featured local characteristics and examples of cooperative competitiveness under the Initiative.

The exhibits were highly visible, being direct and effective in explaining the Initiative, said Isvan Ujhelyi, a member of the European Parliament.
