Zhou Jian, China's ambassador to Qatar, told Dahe Daily that Chinese elements have made great contributions to the World Cup in Qatar and strengthened the China-Qatar friendship. The Chinese elements are the epitome of the fast development of China-Qatar relations, such as Lusail Stadium constructed by China Railway Construction Corporation, solar photovoltaic power station built by Power Construction Corporation of China (PowerChina), soccer and panda-themed ornaments and souvenirs produced in Yiwu city of Southeast China's Zhejiang province, etc. The coming year marks the 35th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries and China will take this opportunity to boost the bilateral ties to a new level.
Chinese elements are everywhere at the Qatar World Cup, among which Yutong buses have become a highlight. Yutong, a Chinese leading bus maker in Henan province, not only exported more than 1,500 buses to Qatar for the World Cup, but also built a service team of 126 people to ensure everything goes smoothly during the extravaganza.

Yutong bus is not only a highlight of China-Qatar cooperation and globalization of Chinese brands, but also an epitome of "Made-in Henan" going global, said Zhou Jian. Henan, as one of China's manufacturing giants, is committed to building itself into an inland highland of opening-up, with many featured projects launched, such as Zhengzhou Airport Economy Zone and China-Europe freight trains. Today, the globalization of "Made-in-Henan" has become a new trend.
