LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, THE UNITED STATES, April 17, 2018 / -- China's most populous province boasts the Shaolin temple and is widely recognized as the home of Chinese martial arts. Henan is also an important cradle of the Chinese civilization. With the nation's tremendous development over the past four decades of opening and reform, Henan's position in both China's economy and society has become increasingly important and now looks to become a key logistics centre in China's "Belt and One Road" strategy.

With the theme of "China in the New Era: Wonderful Henan, Global Partnership" the 12th promotional event to present Chinese provinces hosted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, was held at the ministry's Lanting Forum on April 13. More than 500 envoys from 150 countries, representatives of international organizations in China and representatives of the business community, Chinese and foreign experts and scholars as well as media reporters attended the event to share their understanding of the culture and development of Henan Province.

Pakistan reporter from Dawn, Aitizazh Hassan: We are to get cooperation of Henan, we are just visited the province of Henan, and we visited the different places of Henan. We observed the villages. So we were fascinated by many things, and we are heard the economic development of China. We are heard about the globalization of China.

China's first airport-port integrated economic experiment zone, the Zhengzhou Airport Comprehensive Economic Zone was responsible for nearly 300 million smart phone shipments, accounting for more than one-seventh of the world's smart phone users. The experimental zone has become a top destination for registered companies and investment capital. A cross-border, e-commerce comprehensive experimental zone, it has maintained a leading position in the nation with a total import and export volume, with its six special customs supervision areas and nine functional ports, ranking first in the country. Henan has thus become the province with the largest number of designated ports and the most complete functions in China's inland provinces.

Benin Ambassador in China, Simon Adoverland: Benin has great potential for development, especially in the development of basic industries in the past few years. We also know that Henan's industrial development is very good and we hope to develop in-depth cooperation with Henan. Benin also understands the "Belt and Road Initiative" policy and will fully support the "One Belt and One Road" policy. We also hope to strengthen cooperation with Henan. We are very optimistic.

In January, Henan's total value of imports and exports to and from countries along the "Belt and Road" reached 10.62 billion yuan, an increase of 38.1% from the same period last year, and now accounting for 19.8% of the total value of all foreign trade in Henan during the same period, these results highlight Henan's deep integration into the Belt and Road Initiative.

Along with its assimilation of the Belt and Road initiative, Henan province is also active in innovation. Three new "Silk Roads" of "air, land, and online" are being built here. This is driving Henan to the very forefront of opening and reform, bringing more development opportunities for cooperating countries. China's newest region of win-win cooperation is emerging.
