Mauro Marchesan, an Italian pilot, first came to Guangdong in 2012. Once called “Canton” by the west, all he knew of Guangzhou was its rapidly growing prosperity and geographical proximity to Hong Kong.
After 6 years working for China Southern Airlines, however, he has gradually become as familiar with the city as many locals are, using WeChat, Didi, dining with Chinese colleagues in Cantonese restaurants, and even learning Wing Chun from a martial arts master in Foshan, a southern city once home to both Ip Man and Bruce Lee.
“Now I can see even more foreigners doing business (in the city). So I have the feeling that the opening of the economy in China is really working well,” said Mauro.
