The event was strongly supported by the Hunan University of Chinese Medicine and Changsha Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine. They selected 6 well-known TCM experts to provide free health consultation and treatments for overseas Chinese living in Austria and Portugal and held two lectures on TCM healthcare knowledge. The team also talked with oversea Chinese representatives. They exchanged ideas on the economic and social development of Hunan Province and Changsha City in recent years and expected the overseas Chinese to play their unique role as a bridge linking Chinese and international friends. Their active participation would greatly promote the friendly exchanges and cooperation between Hunan Province and the countries of Austria and Portugal in various fields.
