DR CHAU CHAK WING AT THE SECOND BELT AND ROAD FORUM FOR INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION 2019

His Thoughts on the Thematic Forum on People-to-people Connectivity of the Second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation (BRF) on Thursday 25th April 2019.

“I immigrated to Australia decades ago, and later returned to China for business. Through my decades-long experience in business, I have developed a good understanding of both Australia and China.”

“Over the years, I have witnessed the friendly exchange and cooperation between Australia and China which has generated great benefits to economic growth and the living standards of both countries and its communities.”

“In this current global environment, Australia can take our relationship with China to the next level by embracing the Belt and Road Initiative as a valuable opportunity to engage with China and discuss future initiatives to strengthen both economies.”

“I believe, as overseas Chinese CEOs, we have a better understanding of trade and the economy in both our adopted country and country of our origin and thus, we can play a bridging role to further promote trade and economic cooperation in both nations. In addition, overseas Chinese CEOs have the advantage of cross-cultural communication to make them the best candidates as “Citizen Ambassadors” to break down barriers between nations and enhance friendship between our peoples.”

“I also like to congratulate Premier Daniel Andrews on being the 1st Australian leader to sign an MOU with China on the Belt & Road Initiates, whose great vision can lead Victoria to a better future.”
