“这是我第一次来海南,一下飞机就感受到热带的气息。这里的气候让人觉得非常舒服。” 10月30日上午,欧盟驻华大使郁白在海口接受记者采访时表示,他曾在新加坡工作两年之久,海南与新加坡相似的气候让他倍感亲切。

据了解,由于熟稔东方文化,郁白曾多次被派驻中国,先后担任法国驻华大使馆文化参赞、法国驻上海总领事、法国驻华大使馆公使等职务。

  当前,海南正面临着建设自由贸易试验区和中国特色自由贸易港的机遇期,郁白认为,海南可以抓住这一机遇,利用好优越的地理位置,与欧洲以及“一带一路”沿线国家和地区开展充分的交流与合作。

“It is the first time for me to visit Hainan. I feel quite comfortable due to the tropical weather here.” On October 30th, Nicolas Chapuis, the EU’s ambassador to China, arrived in Haikou and accepted interview. He said that the climate in Hainan was similar to that in Singapore, which makes him feel at home. Because he has worked in Singapore for two years.

Knowing Eastern culture well, Chapuis has been sent to visit China for many times. He was appointed as Cultural Counselor of the French Embassy in China, Consul General of France in Shanghai and Minister of the French Embassy.

Currently, Hainan is constructing the Pilot Free Trade Zone and the free trade port with Chinese characteristics. Chapuis believes that Hainan could seize the opportunity and make full use of its advantages of location and conduct cooperation and exchanges with European countries and regions along the Belt and Road Initiative route.
