“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.
