By / HICN / Updated: 18:47,29-May-2022

The road to success is long and full of potholes, but youths are made to go full throttle.

Youth is a time for chasing dreams, and it is young people who are the new driving force in the construction of the Hainan Free Trade Port (FTP). For many of them, Hainan is not just some idyllic backwater; it's a land where dreams are made. Making dreams come true is an arduous trek, and for many young people, Hainan is the place where this journey begins.

Hainan FTP construction commenced in earnest and has thus far made shining progress, much of which can be attributed to 'youth power'. To coincide with the second anniversary of the release of the Master Plan for the Construction of the Hainan Free Trade Port, HIMC is launching "Youth Power in the Hainan FTP · Dare to Dream", a series where young people working in various fields in the Hainan FTP are interviewed in English about how the construction of the FTP is helping them realize their dreams and invites them to share the stories of the Hainan youth with the world.

Zhou Zhisheng, who studied at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, is a young independent musician. After graduating from university, he met like-minded musicians Wu Zhiwei and Wang Jiatian. With faith in their dream of creating good music, the three young people started their musical journey together. Their songs "Aha! Let’s Take Nucleic Acid Tests Together" and "A New Chapter" - written for the graduation season - have gone viral on social media and received a lot of media attention. 

Zhou Zhisheng feels that with the implementation of Hainan's Free Trade Port policies, local music has been given boundless opportunities for development, bolstering his confidence in music creation. He hopes to work with his partners to create more Hainan-themed music and interpret the "youthful melodies" of young people within the Hainan FTP. In this episode, let's listen to the story of young Sanya musician Zhou Zhisheng and his partners as they play out their musical dreams.
