Guangzhou-A city full of surprises
Over the past year in Guangzhou, Mr. Oloko has already travelled widely around the city and got immersed in local culture new and old through watching Chinese films and Cantonese Opera.
“Last December, Guangzhou hosted the Fortune Global Forum. A lot of people came from different parts of the world. We were surprised to see such a beautiful place with such a large population. It is a big city accommodating more than 10 million people.”
The 2017 Fortune Global Forum was held in Guangzhou.
“Guangzhou is a big city with a good layout,” Mr. Oloko recalled this was his first impression when he arrived in Guangzhou.
The heart of the cooperation is to facilitate development in Africa. That is why Guangdong has to play a role and to talk with various African consulates, so as to lead the improvements across the African continent. A lot of investors from Guangdong are workinng hard to help Africa. Chinese companies have helped Africa in terms of agriculture, technology and medical care, whilst also boosting their own trade revenue: true win-win cooperation.
“Guangzhou is a marvelous, fantastic and dynamic city with a massive airport, beautiful environment and friendly people. It is really surprising that Guangzhou has so much.”
