Energy and power
Power grid to be paved for countries along the Belt and Road
The countries along the Belt and Road such as Ethiopia, Laos, Ghana and Cote d'Ivoire where there are abundant resources of water and power, are, however, suffering from lacking in power for a long term. With the moving forward of major energy cooperation projects on the Belt and Road, advanced technologies in power grid in Hunan Province are being used to pave a smart and highly efficient power grid.

Sowing Hunan elements along the Belt and Road
The first stage of a project for cooperation in agricultural technology with the aid of Yuan Long Ping High-Tech Agriculture Co., Ltd. (as Longping High-Tech) has been completed with the project acceptance recently. This project has taken three years to grow hybrid rice of Longping High-Tech in 5 provinces in Nepal and has achieved an increase in yields of up to 40% to 100%.

Hunan Xuanye Ecological Agriculture Development Co., Ltd. has its roots in agricultural land in the south of Laos by applying Chinese technology and outcomes of Chinese standards to rice growing and processing procedures in Laos, which ends the Laotian history of zero export of rice. During this process, the local farmers have been greatly encouraged to grow rice, and productive efficiency and yields have been increased while the originality and zero pollution of Laotian rice still continue.
Hunan Xuanye has begun to create a new type agricultural industry park in Vientiane, trying to synchronize with the China-Laos Railway Road in construction, to develop a large-size eco-agricultural project combining agricultural products breeding and process, storage and logistics, trading and display, and scientific research and trainings.

Aier Eye: to bring brightness to cataract patients by the side of Mekong River
In Myanmar, cataract is a high-incidence disease, with more than 300,000 people out of a population of more than 50 million being cataract patients. But there are only more than 300 eye doctors in Myanmar, resulting in a fact that many low-income patients remain untreated for many years of being sick.
(Gong Yongxiang, Head of The international medical aid team of Aier Eye and Director of Kunming AIER Eye Hospital, is checking the patient.)
Aier Eye from Hunan, as a medical aid agency nominated for Mekong Brightness Action and the Belt and Road – Love of Emigrants and Brightness Action, has set its feet on every corner of the two countries and four regions along the Mekong River including Philippines, Cambodia and Thailand and brought brightness to nearly a thousand cataract patients in poverty.
Over the past years, China has continuously dispatched Brightness Action Medical Team for operations free of charge on a large number of cataract patients in Myanmar, who are highly recognized by the local people.
Within more than five years after the Belt and Road was put forward, Hunan Province has 755 companies registered for investment overseas, with a contracted investment from China side amounting to USD10.45 billion and an actual investment to USD7.19 billion in 92 countries and regions.
