In the context of this Strategic Cooperation, we will also continue to hold our Annual International Forum in Pudong which we plan to expand further with the support of the Pudong Government.


We are honored by the confidence of the Pudong Government to enter into this Memorandum of Strategic Cooperation with Capital Link.
