Ma Xiaoqiu at the summit witnessed the collision of ideas from elites from all walks of life in both China and U.S. Having gained a lot of farsighted concepts, she further confirmed her original intention to widely spread Chinese traditional culture and Chinese values and further strengthened her determination to “pursue sun in heart” and her belief of turning into a Chinese cultural communicator and global cultural exchange promoter.

As a founder of Ding Yifeng, Ma Xiaoqiu has always made joint efforts with Sui Guangyi in applying the wisdom of Chinese traditional culture to enterprise management. Their efforts over the years led to an enterprise full of Chinese wisdom, which set an example for global counterparts. Nowadays, Ding Yifeng with such enterprise culture set its subsidiary in U.S. This action happened to echo with the theme of this summit – “Opportunities and Challenges for China to Invest in U.S.

Collector Yang Hao presented a precious museum-level gold-plated copper sculpture created in Italy in the 19th century to Ma Xiaoqiu. The inspiration of this art works came from Artemis in Greek mythology, a goddess also called Cynthia who was not only a goddess of hunting but also a goodness of health, wisdom and harvest.

Thanks to the unremitting efforts by Ma Xiaoqiu, the culture of Ding Yifeng is further spread, noted and recognized by people from all walks of life in the United States; therefore, more and more people pay attention to and support Ding Yifeng. We firmly believe that a whirlwind of “Chinese value” has sprung up over the land of the United States from the remote East across vast ocean! In the near future, such whirlwind is bound to boost Chinese culture to bloom all over the land of western countries in a peaceful and friendly way.
