Recently, the Association organized a visit to Dongguan, and we were warmly received by the Secretary of Dongguan Municipal Committee Liang Weidong, the Mayor Xiao Yafei, the Head of United Front Work Department Chen Zhiwei and other leaders.

The leaders of the city introduced to us the development of Dongguan in the past few years, especially the transformation and upgrading of enterprises, and the changes being brought by the high-tech industry. Members of the delegation were deeply inspired by the city’s vibrant development. Within decades, Donguan has developed from a small agricultural town to a big manufacturing city, and now moving towards the era of high-technology. Entrepreneurs who have made investments in Dongguan since early stages of Reform and Opening Up and grow their businesses in the place, such as Leung Lun, C.F.
