About 80 percent of the planned Food and Agricultural Products exhibition area has been booked for the seventh China International Import Expo (CIIE), said event organizers at a pre-expo supply and demand matchmaking event on Thursday.

At the matchmaking event, more than 20 dairy and agricultural product exhibitors demonstrated their products, and talked with potential clients, including food processing companies, and e-commerce and supermarket buyers to better understand the market demands.

Yu Zhiqiong, a representative of the Agricultural Products Special Committee of the CIIE Exhibitor Alliance, said the organizer is also planning to introduce some of the world-renowned food festivals to Chinese companies and customers during the CIIE to further stimulate consumption.

"We are planning to bring some international food festivals to China, such as France's bread festival. This would allow Chinese companies and consumers to experience international food culture," she said.

The seventh CIIE is scheduled to be held in China's Shanghai from Nov. 5 to 10. The preparation work is now underway.

China continues to optimize the energy consumption structure, and promote green and low-carbon development to a new height, said a senior official in Beijing on Thursday.

Since the 18th Communist Party of China (CPC) National Congress in 2012, China has made a new leap in the level of energy security and stable supply, while continuously optimizing the energy consumption structure, said Zhang Jianhua, director of the National Energy Administration.

From 2013 to 2023, the total production of primary energy rose 35 percent. The installed wind power generation capacity increased by nearly five times, and the installed photovoltaic power generation capacity increased by over 30 times, said Zhang.

The official also said that China has established the world's largest charging infrastructure system. Over the course of 10 years, the proportion of coal consumption has dropped by 12.1 percentage points, while the proportion of consumption in non-fossil fuel sources such as wind power, solar power, hydropower, and nuclear power has increased by 7.7 percentage points. As a result, the "green content" of economic development has significantly improved.

So far, China is one of the world's advanced countries in terms of energy technology modernization.

In the future, the country will coordinate energy security and low-carbon transformation, reduce the consumption of fossil fuel energy, and continuously promote the transformation and upgrading of energy utilization.

Meanwhile, China is intensifying its efforts in the development of non-fossil energy, while coordinating the advancement of nuclear power, hydropower, and new energy development and utilization, aiming to promote high-quality development of energy.

"By 2025, approximately 12 million charging facilities will be established nationwide. Efforts will be made to increase the electrification level of end-use energy to around 30 percent by 2025. We will continue to expand the scale of green electricity consumption and increase the proportion of non-fossil energy consumption by one percentage point every year," said Zhang.
