The port city of Nantong in Jiangsu province welcomed a group of 120 students and teachers from Hong Kong on March 27 and 28, introducing them to the city's historic and modern development.
The delegation, from Hon Wah College in Hong Kong, got the opportunity to learn about how the eastern Chinese port city has benefited from its natural resources and strived forward with great momentum.
They visited the local offshore wind power plant, the largest of its kind in Asia, and also took a look at the Shanghai-Nantong Yangtze River Bridge, a conglomeration that is helping the Jiangsu city build itself into the northern gate of neighboring Shanghai. It will promote coordinated development and connectivity with Shanghai in fields such as traffic, industrial cooperation and innovation.
