On the southeast coast of China and southern Fujian Province, there is a shining pearl born between the mountains and the sea, this is Xiamen.

Xiamen is a place where Eastern and Western cultures collide and blend.

Gulangyu Island, in the name of "historical international community", is listed as a world cultural heritage.

Xiamen is the forefront of China's opening up and development.

From becoming one of the five trade ports more than a hundred years ago, to the establishment of special economic zones in the early 1980s, and now, special economic zones, Taiwanese investment zones, export processing zones, bonded zones, national comprehensive supporting reform pilot zones, and free Xiamen has always been a "window" for China's opening to the outside world in a comprehensive, wide-ranging, and multi-level opening-up pattern such as the pilot trade zone and the pivotal city of the "Belt and Road".

Xiamen is a beautiful coastal city that is ecologically livable.

Over the years, Xiamen has insisted on giving priority to ecology and green development, building a national ecological civilization experimental zone with high standards, and continuing to build a "city in full bloom in the garden", winning the title of National Garden City, National Forest City, National Ecological Garden City, International Garden City, United Nations The Habitat Award and other awards.
