The second batch of 1 000 food packages will be handed over on Friday. Zhang Bing, the managing director of China Harbour, speaking at the ceremony, said the lockdown is one of the necessary measures for the prevention of the spread of the pandemic that has brought a lot of inconvenience to people’s lives and disrupted global economic activities.
He said the pandemic has no borders and is the public enemy of all humanity. In addition, China Harbour has called on other Chinese enterprises to emulate its example and to come on board to fight the pandemic. “We will gather greater strength and surely achieve a full victory. A friend in need is a friend indeed. I believe that the friendship between our two peoples will be more sincere after being tested,” stated Zhang.
