Enhance people-to-people connectivity
When asked about his impressions of Guangdong this time, Stocker quickly responded with these three words “future”, “capacity” and “hospitality”. He insisted that the bilateral cooperation between the two places should continue to include people-to-people connectivity.
Stocker is fascinated with Cantonese food and music. This time he made sure to spare some time to taste traditional Dim Sum, and he was greatly impressed by Lingnan music, particularly the Erhu, an ancient two-stringed instrument.
Finally Stocker said that the two places should enhance cooperation in education and talent recruitment. He praised Guangdong youths for being eager to learn, calling them ‘incredibly capable students, who are willing to go all out in pursuit of their goals.’
