Although GPHL’s traditional medicine has made its name in the domestic market, Li Hong said they met with various challenges when entering the overseas markets, and the fundamental problem remains that overseas customers still lack an understanding of traditional Chinese medicine culture.
“We will build herbal tea museums worldwide to provide a source of knowledge about traditional Chinese medicine and promote our products,” said Li, “moreover, attending international events like the Marine Silk Road Forum and the following Fortune Global Forum provides great chances to let people outside China try our products and dive deeper into our brands.”

Holding a colorful metal box painted a Chinese character “粤” (‘Yue’- another way of referring to Guangdong), Qiu Jianhua, Director of Cooperation Culture and Deputy Director of the General Office of GPHL, said the enterprise had prepared a special gift box for the upcoming Marine Silk Road Forum.
“The gift set contains our most popular products as well as detailed English instructions,” said Qiu Jianhua, “and will be provided at other conferences in the future so that guests at home and abroad can try our products and experience this key part of Cantonese culture.”
