Guizhou agricultural products have been made more readily available to people in the Chinese capital Beijing, after more than 10 Guizhou businesses signed agreements with e-commerce platform Guo'an Community on Oct 16.
Products such as pepper sauces, dried bean curd, and dragon fruit will now be available for people to order online as a result of the deals worth some 400 million yuan ($59.36 million).

Providing Guizhou companies with a platform to better connect with consumers in the capital, is part of a government project aimed at alleviating poverty and improving social welfare for many communities across Guizhou province.
To celebrate the deal, a launch ceremony was held in Beijing on Oct 16.
