As the ninth promotional event for the "2018 Global Conversations between Guangzhou and the World", a major affair organized by the city featuring a range of overseas roadshows, this Singapore roadshow is intended to provide the world with a window on the achievements of China's reform and opening-up, and enable Guangzhou to exchange and share its urban management experience with other cities around the world.
Guangzhou is the forerunner of China's reform and opening-up while Singapore is the leader in the construction of a global smart city. Besides, the two are geographically close and culturally connected, and have sparked great achievements in terms of cooperation.
