Cebu Daily News - - LIFE -

IT WAS a grand re­cep­tion hosted by Con­sul General Shi Yong to cel­e­brate the 69th found an­niver­sary of the Peo­ple’s Repub­lic of China, at the grand ball­room of the Marco Polo Plaza Ho­tel.

The oc­ca­sion served as a farewell for Con­sul General Shi Yong, as he said in his speech:

“This is my last time to host a re­cep­tion in Cebu. I feel so lucky that my two years in Cebu has seen a suc­cess­ful turn around and steady growth of re­la­tions be­tween China and the Philip­pines.”

He later re­it­er­ated: “I feel very, very lucky to be able to con­trib­ute my own bit to our bi­lat­eral friend­ship and co­op­er­a­tion.

“I am very grate­ful to all friends from govern­ment, busi­ness com­mu­nity, me­dia and other sec­tors for your con­tri­bu­tion to our bi­lat­eral re­la­tions, and the sup­port given to me and the con­sulate.”

In his speech Con­sul General Shi Yong noted how in the last 69 years China has made tremen­dous progress. The Chi­nese peo­ple have emerged from a life of short­ages and poverty and are now en­joy­ing abun­dant sup­ply and a mod­er­ately pros­per­ous life.

Fur­ther­more, he stated that China has grown into the world’s se­cond largest econ­omy, the largest pro­ducer, the largest trader of goods, and the holder of the largest for­eign ex­change re­serves.

Dur­ing the ten­ure of Con­sul General Shi Yong the Chi­nese Con­sulate in Cebu had the fol­low­ing projects for 2018:

Am­bu­lance for Os­lob: Sports equip­ment for the Ne­gros Ori­en­tal Drug Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Foun­da­tion; phys­i­cal and oc­cu­pa­tional ther­apy equip­ment for Per­sons with Dis­abil­i­ties Ther­a­peu­tic and Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Cen­ter of the Prov­ince of Cebu; 10 desk top com­put­ers for Cebu City’s De­part­ment of Man­power and Place­ment; and 110 pieces hos­pi­tal beds for the Cebu City Med­i­cal Cen­ter.
