President of the Swedish Chinese Association
Ye Keqing: Qingtian is my hometown and also the hometown of China's famous "Overseas Chinese". Qingtian is located deep in the mountains, but facing the sea, with the world in mind, Qingtian artists have practiced the "spirit of ingenuity" for generations, turning stones into gold, demonstrating the artistic style of a great country; Qingtian overseas Chinese have cast stones to ask for directions and become the forerunners of the "Belt and Road". In this sense, Qingtian is a blessed land, and the people living here are all blessed people. In ancient times, there were Liu Ji, in contemporary times there are Chen Muhua, Zhang Naiqi, Chen Cheng, and national master Lin Rukui. The beauty of the stone creates the beauty of man, and the wisdom of man creates the art of the stone. In our hometown, Qingtian, there is a famous saying: "Every overseas Chinese is a stone going abroad; every stone is an overseas Chinese going abroad!"
