WUXI, July 27, China Daily - Wuxi Flower Market, a large trade center for greenhouse flowers in East China's Jiangsu province, held a promotion campaign on July 27, attended by over 50 flower businesses from 15 provinces in the country. A total of 27 cooperation projects worth over 22 million yuan ($3.6 million) were signed that day.
