The Chinese have a long history of emigrating overseas. No matter when and where, overseas Chinese have demonstrated the inherent diligence, tenacity and courage of the Chinese nation in the process of migration, reproduction, struggle, and entrepreneurship.

On the other hand, overseas Chinese and Chinese people "love the two hometowns", continue to care for the development of their home country (home), live in harmony with the people living in the country, and actively integrate and give back to the country where they live.

These benevolent qualities reflect the spiritual core of Chinese culture represented by Confucian culture, and become the internal force that promotes Chinese civilization to "be the outsider."

With the power of civilization, we can increase trust and dispel doubts, promote justice and benefit, and promote people-to-people bonds. Overseas Chinese can play a constructive role.

  As Pan Yue, director of the Overseas Chinese Affairs Office of the State Council, said in a written speech at the opening ceremony of the "2021 China (Qufu) International Confucius Cultural Festival 7th Nishan World Civilization Forum", overseas Chinese have always been the promoters of exchanges and mutual learning between Chinese and foreign civilizations.
