Seeking cooperation opportunities

For a long time, overseas Chinese have done a lot of work in promoting the economic cooperation and public welfare undertakings between Hunan and other parts of the world, and they are an important force in promoting the economic transformation and upgrading of Hunan and the transformation of economic development mode.Moreover, the "Overseas Chinese hometown Trip" activity promoted the docking and cooperation between a large number of overseas Chinese and city-state economic and cultural projects.

Investment promotion meeting has always been a necessary project of "overseas Chinese hometown tour" activities.Changsha, Xiangtan, Hengyang overseas Chinese have issued invitations, olive branch, hope overseas Chinese overseas Chinese actively mobilize their capital, technology, market, contacts and other resources, pull the strings, participate in local construction, investment and business return home.

However, the presentation was just the starter.Solid projects and policies are the magic weapon to attract overseas Chinese to invest and develop in Hunan.

In recent years, Changsha has made great efforts to build a highland of reform and opening up in the inland region, improve the level of internationalization, and actively apply for the construction of "returnees town", build a number of international communities, improve the supporting facilities for returned overseas Chinese.All these measures have ushered in more cooperation opportunities and development space for overseas Chinese.

He hoped that all of them could combine patriotism with practical actions and strive for the realization of the Chinese dream of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

Telingl the story of China and Hunan well

Overseas Chinese, as participants and contributors of world civilization, have greatly promoted the international dissemination of Chinese culture.

For overseas Chinese, in order to tell Chinese stories well, we must understand the profound connotation behind the stories. Instead of telling stories for the sake of telling stories, we should "see" and "tell" by ourselves, integrate specific details, typical examples and more emotional interaction, so that Chinese stories can be recognized by the international community and overseas audiences.

In the first half of 2021, Hunan achieved a year-on-year growth of 11.7%. The driving force of high-tech industries such as machinery intelligent manufacturing and semiconductor chips continued to grow, and the actual utilization of foreign investment in hunan increased both in quantity and quality.The number of newly established foreign-invested enterprises increased by 41.6% year on year, and the number of actually utilized foreign investment increased by 59.5% year on year, demonstrating strong economic resilience and good development expectations.These tangible achievements are "good materials" for telling good stories about Hunan.

During the five-day trip to Hunan, overseas Chinese saw hunan's "great potential", learned about its development, changes and environment, and felt hunan's profound history and culture as well as its beautiful ecological environment.As overseas Chinese who have the dual advantages of being familiar with the fine Chinese culture and the language and culture of their home country, they can tell Chinese stories well in a way of thinking and expression that is easy to be accepted by the people living in their home country, and play a more important role in promoting the friendly exchanges between China and foreign countries.

"I deeply felt the great changes and achievements my hometown has made in all aspects through the hunan trip, and I will urge local Overseas Chinese to vigorously tell the stories of China and Hunan after returning to China."Said Li Boning, founding president of Cambodia hunan General Chamber of Commerce and honorary president of Overseas Chinese Merchants Association.
