A group of foreigners were recently invited to take part in a tour of Taizhou, East China's Zhejiang province to learn about and experience the city's charm.

The participants were primarily entrepreneurs, corporate executives, and technicians working in Taizhou.

The delegation visited places like the Taizhou administrative service center, carmaker Volvo's production base in Taizhou, Jack Sewing Machine Co Ltd, as well as scenic spots including The City Wall of the Ancient City of Taizhou and Ziyang Ancient Street.

One of the participants was a Syrian, whose Chinese name is Nan Da. 

Having been in China for eight years, he noted that he had recently obtained his Chinese green card at the Taizhou administrative service center and was impressed by the center's service efficiency.

Another participant was Ren Rongjun (Chinese name), a South Korean who has worked in Taizhou for 13 years. Ren said that when he stepped into the Volvo plant, he was shocked by its size and did not expect to find such a world-class auto factory in Taizhou. 

"I think Volvo can produce its high-end electric cars in Taizhou, which in itself is a testament to the city's manufacturing capability and auto industry chain," Ren said.

"The production capacity, industrial chain layout, and entrepreneurial ideas of Taizhou enterprises are all at the forefront of the world, which is also the reason why I choose to work in Taizhou," said Wan Zirui, a Pakistani member of the delegation who works at Zhejiang Shuanghuan Driveline Co Ltd.

Another member of the delegation was Argentine native Rodrigo Alvarez, who currently works as the chief designer at ARIIC, a scooter manufacturer in Taizhou.

Impressed by the design of Volvo's new cars in Taizhou, he said the design level of vehicles in Taizhou has improved significantly in recent years, both in appearance design and product quality, and that this visit gave him a lot of inspiration for creation.
