Lin Jiaxi, a grade five student from Huayang Primary School, one of the selected messengers, wrote a letter to Mary Barra, CEO of US automaker General Motors (GM). In her letter, she expressed her keen interest in pilotless electric automobiles and hoped GM can develop an electric car which can fly when in traffic jams. Lin also said she is looking forward to interviewing CEOs and managers of Fortune Global 500 enterprises who will attend the Fortune Global Forum 2017 in December.
In early June, organizers of the Fortune Global Forum 2017 called on the whole city of Guangzhou to turn into messengers for the event and many people including primary and middle school students from Guangzhou, excellent college graduates and young entrepreneurs were selected to serve the event and promote Lingnan culture.
On Aug 12, the selected messengers were given a special training on how best to convey their messages with images and new media in order to give the big shots of Fortune Global 500 enterprises a better understanding of the Guangdong province capital.
