Exclusive interview with Hong Qingchuan, Chairman at Fang Yuan International Investment Limited
Hearing his patriotism of overseas Chinese
At the early period of reform and opening-up, I began to learn how to do business.
Until 1993, there is a chance to go to Hongkong.
When I got to Hongkong, I started my own company.
Untill 1999, I officially transitioned into insurance company.
20 springs and autumns have past.
20 years are just about right.
I am now the Technical Regional Director of AIA Hongkong.
This industry is very essential to the society.
It can help to take care of people
and provide professional service to the general public.
We have education fund
including some health fund and so on so forth.
Honestly I deeply feel that this industry
is similar to do good deeds.
Having this responsibility，
this sense of mission,
in other words, we are truly helping people.
Because of compassion,
The Yinglin Association of Townsmen led by Hong Qingchuan has won good social reputation.
Through their own influence in the industry,
nostalgia and kinship as the connection drives the development of companies, education and all other areas.
Hongkong Yinglin Association of Townsmen
is an association that loves Hongkong and the mother country.
It maintains the long-term and steady development of our association.
I am the 14th president of Yinglin Association of Townsmen in Hongkong, with over 1000 members in total.
After I took the leadership, I particularly focus on
the education of the young generation at Hongkong Association of Townsmen.
A place can never develop without education.
I firstly help Shichuan University Confucius Education Foundation.
Continuously I donate money to them.
The second is our hometown.
We have gone on a routine.
一路走过来是从我们的幼儿园 小学 中学，
For a long time, Kindergarten, primary school, middle school,
the education foundation created by Yinglin Association of Townsmen
Supported by the local Party Committee and the government
Yinglin Love, organized by entrepreneurs
which people from all walks of life including overseas Chinese have participated at
has helped lots of people
For the money donated, we use particularly
at the education of next generation, environment protection and the arrangement of the retired elderly.
Hong Qingchuan created the legend of “overseas Chinese in Hongkong” with remarkable bravery and wisdom.
He often says that the landscape in hometown raised him up
and the culture of hometown educated him.
For him, no matter where he is.
He never forgets where he comes from!
Many projects can never develop without the investment from our Hongkong and Macao people
and can never develop without our kindness
and help from Hongkong and Macao areas。
The only purpose of building the youth committee of the association
is to bring kids, young adults home
to find their origin and history.
Though guiding them from different directions,
let them understand where their relatives are
and where our origin is.
Our national condition is different than the past.
We should let them understand more about our country.
Under the active guidance of the national policy,
Hongkong and Macao people are moving forward in full swing
and contributing their efforts into the development of the mother country,
for protecting the “Belt and Road” Initiative, the construction of Guangdong, Hongkong and Macao Bay Area.
For the financial industry in Hongkong,
supported by the national policy
and the management of the government in the special administrative region,
it is keeping a good pace.
Because the Bay Area has more than 70 million people,
we are the international city standing in the front end of the period of reform and opening-up.
For the Bay Area,
it is the place that President Xi prioritizes.
Therefore, we believe that it will have a big difference.
If we want to be the leader in the financial industry in Hongkong, we definitely want to protect the industry.
As the bridge to connect China and foreign countries,
overseas Chinese are taking the responsibility and mission of China in the new era.
Under the mutual efforts,
every effort adding up
looks like small streams aggregating into big rivers,
which finally become a grand trend.
We are abroad and see that our mainland is advancing so fast.
We are strong so that our reputation in Southeast Asia becomes higher.
We are proud of being Chinese.
In term of our “Belt and Road” Initiative and Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB)
Chinese are such kind people.
So as to say that frankly, we usually share our achievements
with partner countries and local residents.
This is our Chinese confidence, Chinese faith and Chinese spirit.
