Dongguan, a city in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, is sparing no effort to woo talent while increasing investment attraction.

Xiao Yafei, Party secretary of Dongguan, said the city has always attached great importance to skilled labor and vigorously promoted the strategy of strengthening the city with talent.

He made the remarks at Wednesday's opening ceremony of the 2023 Dongguan High-Level Talent Week and Talent Series Theme Activity Carnival.

"Today's Dongguan is more eager for talent than ever before and can cultivate talent more than ever before," he said.

Xiao promised to provide a broader stage for talent from home and abroad to develop their careers in Dongguan in the coming months.

He added that Dongguan, a major production base in Guangdong province, has attracted and clustered many new high-tech companies and projects eager to attract talent for further development and expansion.

Meanwhile, Sino-foreign companies signed 359 industrial development projects with a total investment of 218 billion yuan ($31.14 billion) during the 2023 Dongguan Global Investment Promotion Conference, which also took place in the city on Wednesday.

The new projects, covering new generation information technology, high-end equipment manufacturing, new energy and digital economy, inject fresh momentum into the high-quality development of Dongguan's economy.

Over 1,000 officials and senior business representatives from the world's top 500 companies participated in the conference.

Five sub-conferences were also staged in Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Germany and the United States.
