Jinan is an ideal host location for the conference as it has a leading advantage in agriculture and food production in China, said Luis Schmidt Montes, Chilean ambassador to China.

He noted that Chile is looking to learn from Jinan as the city has been developing towards modernization in agricultural production.

Jinan, capital of Shandong province, is playing an important role in providing a steady supply of high-quality agricultural products in the province and even in the country.

The city currently has 12 State-owned grain reserve depots and has formed a complete industrial chain that spans raw grain to production.

Advanced technologies have been widely used in grain storage in the city such as internal circulation temperature control technology and low-power ventilation technology. The grain loss rate in storage has been kept below 0.2 percent.

Furthermore, with the support of national ecological protection efforts and the strategy for high-quality development in the Yellow River Basin, Jinan now faces new development opportunities.

As an important transportation hub in China, Jinan has more than 300 railways connecting 254 cities in the country and 204 airlines that travel to 114 cities at home and abroad.

Jinan joined China's "1-trillion-yuan club" for the first time in 2020 when its GDP hit 1.01 trillion yuan ($156.7 billion). The revenue of the information technology and high-end equipment industries both exceeded 300 billion yuan.

Jinan also enjoys a favorable international environment. The city is currently home to 81 of the world's top 500 companies and has 79 sister cities and friendly cooperation cities.

The conference will bring new development opportunities for Jinan to promote high-quality agricultural development, build a new highland for opening up to the outside world, and build a strong modern provincial capital in the new era, the organizers said.
