    The 17th China-ASEAN Expo is underway in Nanning, capital of south #China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. The event comes at a time when global economies, including that of #ASEAN, are grappling with negative growth caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. But consumer sentiments seem to be pretty high at the expo as exhibitors say they are running out of goods fast! Join CGTN’s Wei Lynn Tang as she explores the Malaysian pavilion along with Beh Yuen Hui, a journalist with The Star, a major English newspaper in Malaysia. They will speak to Zaimah Osman, commercial consul of Malaysia in south China’s Guangzhou, among other Malaysian business representatives participating in the expo. #CAEXPO
