During their stay in Chengdu, the Rhodes scholars visited a number of some tourist sites in the city to satisfy their interest in local culture.“We are impressed by the strong enthusiasm of young people of the city,” Samuel said, “And I see the local government has made great efforts to encourage people to set up their business.

Chengdu has the cultural diversity and vitality, not to mention so many hi-tech companies and universities. The city is a best choice to start up business.”
