A delegation composed of more than 40 officials from foreign consulate-generals in Shanghai embarked on a tour to Huzhou, East China's Zhejiang province on Aug 19, according to local media reports.
The event, co-sponsored by the Department of Foreign Affairs of the Zhejiang Provincial People's Government and the Huzhou Municipal People's Government, comes as part of Zhejiang's efforts to enhance services to foreigners in Zhejiang.
Wang Gang, mayor of Huzhou, met the diplomat delegation.
Under the guidance of the concept of "lucid waters and lush mountains are invaluable assets,” Huzhou has accelerated its development by leveraging its rich ecological resources and geographical advantages, as well as its sustained efforts to promote reform and opening-up, said Wang, pledging that Huzhou will, as always, provide good services for foreigners in Zhejiang.
He added that he hoped that the visiting diplomats would play the role of a bridge to help more foreign entrepreneurs invest in the city.
The delegation expressed admiration for Zhejiang's excellent governance capability in the prevention and control of the COVID-19 epidemic. They said that the visit to Huzhou will allow them to learn more about the city, expressing hope that the visit will lay a solid foundation for future cooperation.
In the coming days, the diplomats will visit Tianneng Group, the Ancient Forest Museum, Guzhu village, Taihu Lake Longemont Paradise, Moon Plaza, and Nanxun Ancient Town to learn about Huzhou's experience and practices in environmental protection, business climate optimization, as well as ancient town protection and development.
