Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Ma Zhaoxu; Hunan provincial leaders Wu Lan, Xie Jianhui, Zhang Jianfei, Chen Fei, and Peng Guofu; and leading officials of Chinese ministries, commissions and other provinces and regions, were present.  
 
The event presented Hunan's notable achievements in economic and social development over the past 70 years since the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949. 
 
It also showed that Hunan has vigorously integrated itself into the implementation of the “Belt and Road” Initiative; and leveraged its geographical advantages of being a transitional zone from China’s eastern coastal areas to the central and western areas, and the junction zone of the Yangtze River Open Economic Belt and the Coastal Open Economic Belt. A new development pattern has taken shape.  
 
This event provided a platform for all parties to have a better understanding of Hunan, and deepen Hunan’s friendship and cooperation with other countries.
