For this activity, all the representatives say they have benefited a lot from it and hope such activities can be held regularly to further narrow the distance between the parties and promote international cooperation and exchanges.

Mr. Chen Hui, Director of Foreign Affairs Administration Division from Shanghai FAO, gives full affirmation to this activity. He points out that Foreign Affairs Departments should transform the mode of foreign affairs management services, by turning leadership-visit service mostly to promote local economic and social development with serving private enterprises’ going-out as the starting point. Mr. Chen also says this activity has showed that Yangpu District is at the forefront of Shanghai districts and counties in Foreign Affairs Department’s serving for economic and social development and hopes Yangpu model to be replicated and extended in other districts.

The success of this activity starts the prelude to Yangpu District Foreign Affairs Department’s changing foreign affairs service concept and exploring new modes of foreign affairs service. As early as the end of last year to develop new annual work plans, Yangpu Foreign Affairs Department realized that Foreign Affairs Department should serve for earnestly practicing the national strategy of opening up and implementing the " One Belt, One Road " development plan. At present, with the continuous development of Yangpu District’s economy and society and the degree of internationalization, the private economy of Yangpu has developed vigorously. Private enterprises conduct foreign exchanges more frequently and "going out" to participate in international competition shows a strong momentum. A number of certain international well-known private multinational enterprises has emerged in Yangpu. However, at the same time, the "going out" of private enterprises has also encountered difficulties and problems from policy support, foreign services, information consulting, visa and other aspects. Serving for "going out" of private enterprises by Foreign Affairs Department is an important manifestation of implementing Scientific Outlook on Development and the spirit of Central Conference on Foreign Affairs and actively practicing "foreign affairs for people", "foreign affairs for economic construction ", and it is the objective need of economic and social development in Yangpu, and also the necessary requirement to implement the relevant spirit of Municipality and District. Therefore, the Foreign Affairs Departments should initiatively raise awareness, innovate service mode, enrich service content, give full play to Foreign Affairs Departments’ function and resource advantage, matchmake private enterprises’s "going out" and actively guide and serve private enterprises’ "going out" to carry out international operation and foreign cooperation.

It is reported that next step Yangpu District Foreign Affairs Department will establish a statistical index system of international development of District to fully reflect the level of international development and guide the direction of international development in the future. The reform road is always full of rough, but after a successful first step, the Yangpu District foreign affairs staff are full of confidence for the future!
