Overseas Chinese Worship Emperor Yan in Zhuzhou


A grand ceremony to worship Emperor Yan was held by the All-China Federation of Returned Overseas Chinese on Sept. 24, 2016. More than one thousand overseas Chinese and people from all walks of life attended the event to commemorate our Chinese ancestor Shennong, the “Divine Husbandman”.

This year marks the 60th anniversary of the founding of the All-China Federation of Returned Overseas Chinese. A series of activities themed with “Overseas Chinese Returning to Hunan” have been co-organized by the Federation and its subordinate in Hunan Province, to better serve economic and social construction of Hunan via uniting the overseas Chinese, assembling their wisdom, and giving full play of their strengths. The worship ceremony was part of the theme activities.
