When talking about the development of foreign SMEs in China, he said that the Chinese market is very attractive to foreign companies, and many companies want to use Forbes China to increase their understanding of China. Forbes China is happy to be China's window to the world. While leading foreign companies and entrepreneurs to develop or cooperate in China, it also brings good Chinese stories to the world. Regardless of whether the epidemic exists or not, Forbes China’s original intention for this has not changed.
He believes that international trade has the attributes of China-foreign docking, including both entering and going out. And IMX is a good platform that can help foreign companies enter the Chinese market more smoothly and develop together with China. He vividly compared China's development to a fire, which may be misunderstood while bringing warmth and light to the world. Therefore, while going global, we must show as many resources and advantages as possible so that the world can better understand China.
Finally, he emphasized that in Sino-foreign relations, cultural exchanges are very important, and soft promotion can be used to enhance understanding of the cultures of various countries. For example, in the Forbes China 30 Under 30 event, there is a theme of the life attitude of the new generation of China, which is also a way of promotion. Life is an aspect of culture. By understanding culture, cultural barriers may be eliminated to a certain extent.
As the trade service section of Hong Kong Jingwei Group, IMX takes "importing quality products for quality demand and providing quality services for quality supply" as its purpose, and is committed to providing "one-stop shop" for global quality products entering China.
