Professor Luo Jun from Beijing Normal University, also associate president of the Academy for International Communication of Chinese Culture of Beijing Normal University, said that it was of special significance to hold the award ceremony of "My China Story" the 3rd International Short Video Competition in Zhongshan. He added that over 100 years ago, Sun Yat-sen went abroad from here, bringing about changes of ideas and politics when he returned to China. "My China Story" expresses the stories told by the world about China, and Zhongshan now plays the role of a liaison for the exchange between China and foreign countries.
Zhongshan is one of the birthplaces of Lingnan culture and is the home to over 1 million overseas Chinese and citizens from China's Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan. In 2020, Zhongshan was named one of China's top 5 prefecture-level cities with the highest overseas influence.
