Youth Power: Foreign Youth Embrace China’s Economic Prospects




BEIJING, July 13, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — In the latest episode of China Daily’s Youth Power, which aired on June 30, Jan Kerekes, a Canadian who has lived in South China’s Hainan province for six years, shared what led him to settle down here.

Hainan is really opening up. The whole world comes here, and you see the opportunities right in front of you,” Kerekes said. “It is a place where you can pursue your dreams.”

Now a teacher at Hainan University, Andreev Aleksei, a 30-year-old Russian, found Kerekes’s story particularly resonant.

“When I went back to my country, I missed the island so much that I had to come back,” Aleksei said. “Hainan not only hosts the Boao Forum for Asia but it is also the best place for windsurfing and parachuting.”

To encourage international talent to come, Hainan has introduced 16 measures to streamline living and working conditions for foreigners.

For example, Aleksei mentioned that Hainan offers numerous benefits and advantageous policies to assist global talents in establishing businesses in the region.

“[The application process] takes just three days, and it can be completed entirely online, even for foreigners,” he said.

The young guests visited the Haikou Municipal Government Service Center to learn more about these measures. There, they met people from around the world with different needs — whether for visas, education, or business.

“I think it’s a testament to the inclusivity of the entire province,” said Jood Ghazwan Sharaf, a 27-year-old Bulgarian student at Tsinghua University.

Dylan Walker, 27, from the United States, was impressed by the efficiency of the “one window for all” system.

“It’s like a one-stop service,” he said. “You don’t have to run all over the place.”

In addition to aiding tourists and residents in their daily lives and business activities, Hainan has made significant economic progress.

One notable example is the Yangpu Economic Development Zone, which has evolved from a small port into Hainan’s largest international port.

In the zone, the young guests explored the Yangpu Offshore Wind Power Industrial Park, where they discovered Hainan’s commitment to developing its marine economy and striving for a harmonious coexistence with the ocean.

According to Lin Qingsong, the park’s general manager, while Hainan’s wind power utilization is still in its early stages, this project stands out as a pioneering model for future large-scale offshore wind power initiatives.

“We can see that China is not an economy that goes within itself. It goes outward to benefit the rest of humanity,” Sharaf said, impressed by China’s innovative economic experiments.

As a global resident of Hainan, Aleksei believes that this island is not only a dynamic free trade model but also a natural paradise that strikes a balance between work and leisure.

“This is quite a unique place in China,” Aleksei said. “No matter what purpose brings you here, whether it’s tourism, starting a business, or work, just come here, and you will fall in love with it.”

QINGDAO, China, July 12, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — During the EURO 2024 tournament, the global home appliance and consumer electronics brand Hisense and the UEFA Foundation jointly launched “Faith In Young Champions,” a public welfare initiative. Innovative robots powered by Hisense enabled hospitalized children from 22 countries to virtually connect with 23 EURO 2024 matches, fulfilling their dreams of attending the event despite physical limitations.

During these periods, children can employ the robot to gain entry into exclusive areas, such as the warm-up zone, locker room or VIP section, directing interaction with their beloved players or teams, so that every football-loving soul can express the purest passion of live football in this way.

As part of its commitment to improving the lives of children, Hisense wants to leverage user-centric technology and social responsibility worldwide. For this remarkable occasion, Hisense supported state-of-the-art commercial products like interactive displays to a hospital in South Africa, and the children had the enriching opportunity to learn how this technology works through interactive activities with the help of volunteers. Also, hospital can use that in their daily office, meeting or discussion, making their working processes more electronic and convenient. 

“We gladly accept the digital board and it will go a very long way to share ideas and brain storm with the directors, doctors and management teams of the hospital, this digital version will make life so much easier.” According to the manager of hospital.

UEFA Foundation was founded in 2015 as a charitable organization governed under Swiss law, with a long-standing philosophy that aligns with the concepts of youth care and social responsibility of Hisense. During the EURO 2024 tournaments, fans also noticed “BECAUSE EVERY CHILD IS A CHAMPION” slogan on the LED board at the pitch side, which perfectly coincides with the “Faith In Young Champions” proposal called upon by Hisense this year, also making the collaboration more possible.

Carine Nkoue, General Secretary of the UEFA Foundation, said, “Football is not only the number one sport in the world but is also a great platform to create solidarity projects for those in need. I would like to encourage all of you to join the activities of the UEFA Foundation for children and become a supporter of this global initiative. With Hisense’s support and the solidarity of the European football family, we can achieve even more.”

Engaging in charitable endeavors and fulfilling corporate social responsibility has long been a cornerstone of Hisense’s corporate culture. The company has proactively allocated resources towards public welfare initiatives with the concept of helping everyone enjoy every moment of life with user-centric technology.

Thanks to its global presence in the diversity industries, Hisense is empowered to take on a broad range of social responsibilities to enhance healthcare and education standards worldwide.
