On March 27, "Chinese Food Prosperity Base" accreditation ceremony was held in the Overseas Chinese Affairs Office of Guangdong Province. Tan Tianxing, deputy director of the Overseas Chinese Affairs Office of the State Council, accredited Shunde Polytechnic as a “Chinese Food Prosperity Base”.

The "Chinese Food Prosperity Project" is one of the eight "overseas Chinese Welfare projects" launched by the Overseas Chinese Affairs Office of the State Council in 2014, with a purpose to promote overseas Chinese food and boost cultural exchanges between China and foreign countries. At present, five Chinese food prosperity bases were set up in Jiangsu, Fujian, Guangdong and Sichuan provinces by the overseas Chinese Affairs Office of the State Council and Guangdong province is the only one being accredited with two Chinese food prosperity bases with one in Guangzhou and another in Shunde.

Mr. Tan affirmed Shunde's great contribution to the promotion of Chinese food, and specially referred to its participation in the “Chinese New Year Dinner” activity during Spring Festival, saying that “Shunde fulfilled its mission by selecting master chiefs to visit Panama when it just established diplomatic relations with China." Mr.Tan hopes Shunde will speed up the construction of the "Chinese Food Prosperity Base" and further enhance the quality of overseas Chinese food. He said, “there are over 400 thousand Chinese restaurants in various parts of the world which have laid a good foundation for the career development of overseas Chinese when they started settling down. Even in an era with advanced science and technology, the Chinese food industry is still an important pillar in the sector of overseas Chinese economy, and is also a very important channel for the world to understand the Chinese people, China and Chinese culture.”

Shunde Polytechnic vice president, Mr. Tan Qianzhang attended the awarding ceremony and introduced that the School has set up training bases and exchange platforms for Chinese culinary arts education including the Chinese Cuisine Academy, the Cantonese Food Master Chef Alliance, and Dim-sum Chef Association, which together with the Shunde “Chinese Food Prosperity Base” will greatly promote Chinese food culture home and abroad.
