The wine grape planting area in Ningxia Hui autonomous region reaches 550,000 mu (36,666.6 hectares), and 101 wineries have been built with an annual output of 130 million bottles of wine. The wine-producing area at the eastern foothills of Helan Mountains has won thousands of international awards.

The ProWein Trade Fair is one of the most influential wine exhibitions globally. About 5,500 exhibitors from more than 60 countries and regions participated in the exhibition this year.

By participating in the event, Ningxia's wine-producing area at the eastern foothills of Helan Mountains aims to seek new opportunities to strengthen exchanges and cooperation with major international wine-producing countries and wine-related organizations. Exchanges in terms of grape varieties, technology, education, talents, and culture, are seen to enhance its international influence in the global market.
