On Dec 16-17 Sandra Lang Linkensederová (like an envoy of the Czech Embassy in China) made an adventurous 2 days visit to Huai’an city located in Jiangsu province (approx. 1,000 km eastwards from Beijing capital). The “World Diplomat’s Trip”, organized by Commercial Express of Embassies&Overseas; Agencies for the representatives of diplomatic missions in China, was aimed to introduce the major central city in the North of Jiangsu Province, also reputed as a “Pearl of Huai River”, and help to report about its business and investment opportunities, landscape beauties and noted local culinary.
Huai’an with its 5 million inhabitants is not a greenhorn to the map of China. The city prides itself on more than 2,000 years history during which various outstanding personalities were born or lived here, such as national hero Guan Tianpei, the author of the Pilgrimage to the West or Mr. Zhou Enlai, first Minister of Foreign Affairs after 1949 and later Prime-Minister of China. It is not being disputed that the Huai’an of today honours the memory of the famous statesman.
The city, endowed with beautiful scenery and lakes abundant in aquatic products (fish, shrimp, turtle and crab), offers a modern infrastructure and fertile soil, disposes of 6 universities and recently has created huge industrial parks where, among others, the King’s Luck Brewery is situated. With land coverage of over 1 million m2 the company turns out more than 30,000 tons of Guoyuan, King’s Luck and Gaogou series of liquors. Although the spirit taste is “quite unexpected” for the European taste buds, it is just beloved by Chinese people. Here in the Huai’an region the King’s Luck liquor usually accompanies the traditional cuisine that offers braised eels, river crabs or turtles.
No doubt, Huai’an is a newly emerging industrial city with complete range of industries. Having more than 10,000 industrial enterprises of various kinds, Huai’an has formed four traditional key industries of machinery, textile or light industry and construction materials. Meanwhile, the modern industries of new energy, software and information service have quickly grown. One should not forget to mention that the region is an important transportation hub with distinctive geographical advantages.
Little wonder Huai’an became favourite place for foreign investments with Taiwan in the fore. However, tied trade relations were also established with more than 100 countries including USA and EU countries. Seems, that local government seeks to create superior investments environment in every aspect. Congratulations!
