“High-tech is a well-developed sector in Uruguay, and Uruguay is the first software exporter in Latin America. China is one of the leading countries in software, so I believe that there is a lot of room to improve our collaboration and cooperation among the companies of the two countries.”

-------- Mr. Martin Alvez, Consul General of the Oriental Republic of Uruguay in Guangzhou

“We would like to see cooperation in 3 domains with Hainan in this amazing opportunity of the free trade port. First of all with Hainan being the entrance and exit port of Chinese Mainland for Israeli products that go to Israel and the Middle East, I think that all the traders would be very interested to see how the policies will be implemented and how the containers full of merchandises can go through this free trade port. Secondly, our interest is in the high-tech and science cooperation. There is already a list of Israeli companies that are willing to come to China to collaborate with Chinese companies. The third one is on the medical field that we already started ---- Israeli companies already had seminar with Boao Lecheng International Medical Tourism Pilot Zone, to see how they can utilize and benefit from this new initiative, especially in digital medicine field.”

-------- Mr. Peleg Lewi, Consul General of the State of Israel in Guangzhou

“On behalf of my country, la Côte d 'Ivoire, I would like to salute the Hainan provincial government, especially for their vision for the development of the province. Hainan is a new gateway to the world, so I would also like to appeal to investors and politicians to seize this opportunity to invest in Hainan free trade port. Because Hainan is going to be the future not just for China, but for the whole world.”

-------- Mr. Kipre Patrice, Executive Consul General of the Republic of Côte d'Ivoire in Guangzhou

“What we have seen here is the achievement that should make every Hainan citizen very proud of. Hainan could be an example that everybody has to start learning from. This visit is an experience that I cherish, and I will come again to start learning from the Chinese experience and start cooperation. I wish all the best to Hainan, and I am sure that all the vision that Hainan government is working on is going to pay dividends. ”

------ H.E. Mr. Mohamed Elbadri, Ambassador of the Arab Republic of Egypt to China
