A total of 3,348 enterprises from home and abroad will attend the upcoming South and Southeast Asia Commodity Expo and Investment Fair (SSACEIF), its organizers said Monday.

The exposition will be held in Kunming, capital of southwest China's Yunnan Province, on Wednesday with a focus on the display of digital technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR).

With six major exhibition areas, the exposition will feature exhibitors from 74 countries, regions and international organizations. Nearly half of them are overseas companies, said Zhang Guohua, director of the Executive Committee of the SSACEIF.

Sri Lanka is the theme country of this year's SSACEIF, and the main guest country is Cambodia. Contracts to be inked during the SSACEIF are estimated to total over 600 billion yuan (about 86.7 billion U.S. dollars).

The 2nd China-South Asia Cooperation Forum, the 14th China-South Asia Business Forum and the 7th China-South Asia Southeast Asia Think Tank Forum will also be held during the seven-day event.
