Reportedly, this is the fourth year for the “petrel assembly” activity to be held, and over 200 Chinese overseas students have attended the activity. So far, the activity has become an important platform for promoting the overseas students ofNingboorigin, expanding the overseas student liaison, cultivating new overseas Chinese resources and attracting overseas Chinese students to start their own business back home, with great influence and brand effect among the overseas Chinese students ofNingboorigin.

The year of 2019 is the 70th anniversary of the People’s Republic ofChina, so this year’s “petrel assembly” activity has added such new themes of inheriting the “red gene”, spreading the “Ningbo Commercial Group” spirit and striving to be a new generation of the time. The participants will visit the former conference venue of the first Communist Party Congress in Jiaxing, and conduct inspections ofNingboBangMuseum, NingboUniversity, the Junsheng Group, the Shunyu Group, and the Jiangfeng Electronics
