The “Go Jiangsu”Footsteps in Jiangsu: Foreign Youth's Travelogue kicked off in Suzhou today.

Over 10 national media outlets including Xinhuanet, CCTV.com, and China.org.cn will have full coverage of the event. Themed “Building a Strong, Prosperous, Beautiful and High-quality New Jiangsu,”the event invites more than 10 expats from such countries as Russia, Germany, the United States, France, Cameroon, Uzbekistan, Bulgaria, Turkmenistan, and Iran to many places in Jiangsu province. They will feel the rapid pace of Jiangsu’s high-quality development in person and witness its new accomplishments in a new era. Suzhou is the first stop of their trips in Jiangsu.

At the launching ceremony, the much-anticipated survey report Jiangsu in the Eyes of Foreign Youth was released. The respondents included more than 100 youth representatives from 60 countries. Nearly 60 percent of those polled have been to or lived in Jiangsu, among whom one has lived in Jiangsu for eight years. The beautiful ecological environment and a robust economy have become a new signature of Jiangsu in the world.
