In the course of discussion, Mr. Goh made detailed inquiries about GAC’s operation mechanism and CMIG’s recent development. He raised individual hope to provide tangible support and assistance for development of CMIG and going-global Chinese enterprises after joining GAC, which gathers a large number of global experts.

Mr. Goh applauded CMIG’s development strategy of industry-finance integration. He pointed out that the layout of CMIG’s home-based aged care industry embraces substantial growth potential, and suggested that CMIG introduce advanced experience of western aged care industries, in a bid to better create environment and conditions for China’s elderly people to enjoy in the old age.

Lee expressed sincere gratitude to Mr. Goh for his agreement to become a member of GAC. He expounded on CMIG’s layout of three industries including new energy, home-based aged care and prefabricated building, as well as three groups including insurance, releasing and asset management. Besides, he noted that CMIG’s rapid development and strategic positioning over the past two years since its inception are largely attributable to the precious suggestions GAC experts have offered.

Lee stressed, the Belt and Road (B&R) comes as a significant strategic path in CMIG’s global layout, while Singapore serves as an important member of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), which is considered as a critical link in the B&R Initiative. In this case, it is hoped to incessantly learn from Mr. Goh with a view to boosting CMIG’s blossoming in the ASEAN countries and along the B&R route.

Prior to conclusion of the discussion, as a representative of CMIG, Executive Vice Chairman Lee signed an agreement with Mr. Goh on the latter’s acceding to GAC, and presented souvenirs including the corporation badge of CMIG to Mr. Goh.
