April 12, the Hubei Global Special Promotion Event of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs with the theme of “Heroic Hubei: Rebirth in Fire and Creating Brilliance Again” was held in the Blue Hall of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a combination of online and offline methods. About 500 people attended the meeting, including ambassadors to China from 155 countries, representatives of 21 international organizations in China, as well as Chinese and foreign business people and media reporters. This is the first provincial, district and municipal promotion activity held by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs after the epidemic, showing the world a new face of Hubei’s rebirth and helping Hubei build a new bridge of foreign cooperation.
At the event site, Wuhan hot and dry noodles, Xiaogan rice wine, Qianjiang lobster, Xiangyang high-flavored tea, Jingzhou Honghu wild yu sauce, Ezhou yukou Wuchang fish… The colorful agricultural and sideline products with Hubei characteristics attracted foreign envoys to stop from time to time. Three sets of contrast pictures were displayed at the promotion meeting: Yellow Crane Tower went from empty to tourists, Hubu Lane went from an “empty lane” to crowded, and Wuhan-based Dongfeng Company pressed the “pause button” to offline a passenger car on average of 51 seconds.
In April on earth, Jing Chumei is as beautiful as a picture.

Hubei’s anti-epidemic is the epitome of China’s anti-epidemic, and it is also a concentrated display of Chinese spirit and Chinese strength. I believe that after the grinding and baptism of the epidemic, the ancient Jingchu land will burst out with more vigorous vitality and vitality.
