On April 1, the 7th Nanyang Cultural Festival 2018 kicked off in Wenchang, 
Hainan Province, China. A total of about 200 overseas Chinese nationals from 18 
countries and regions gathered in Wenchang to express their deep love to 
hometown and seek common development, according to the Publicity Department of 
the CPC Wenchang Committee.

The event is aimed to give full play to Wenchang's advantages in overseas 
resources and local characteristics, and build on the bond of culture to 
establish a platform for exchanges and cooperation of fellow townsmen at home 
and abroad. Against the background of the "Belt & Road" Initiative, this 
platform will promote the Nanyang culture, showcase local culture, create a 
synergy for development, and further boost the pragmatic cooperation of fellow 
townsmen for win-win outcomes in economy, trade, tourism, culture and 
friendship.

The event is consisted of eight parts, including the opening ceremony of the 
Nanyang Cultural Festival in Wenchang, the Themed Exchange Meeting of Fellow 
Townsmen from Home and Abroad, Wenchang Business Attraction Promotion, Wenchang 
Development Dialogue of Chinese and Overseas Young Entrepreneurs, the Meeting 
of the Board of the International Federation of Hainan Associations, artistic 
performance, inspection tours, and 2018 Wenchang Chinese Carnival. 

At the Wenchang Development Dialogue of Chinese and Overseas Young 
Entrepreneurs, young elites of Hainan descent shared their experience and 
suggestions in investment and start-ups. They introduced the investment 
projects and policies of Wenchang, and called for more young people from home 
and abroad to learn about Wenchang and make due contributions to its 
socio-economic development.

In addition, at the artistic performance, art troupes from Singapore, Malaysia, 
Thailand and Hong Kong presented the Nanyang-style shows, and gained big 
applause and warm welcome among the audience. 

To coincide with the Nanyang Cultural Festival, Wenchang unveiled a short video 
solicitation activity named "Chinese Nationals of Hainnan Descent Give 
Thumbs-up for the 30 years of Development of Wenchang", in the hope of boosting 
the development of Wenchang through the widespread dissemination by overseas 
Chinese nationals.
