At the Wenchang Development Dialogue of Chinese and Overseas Young Entrepreneurs, young elites of Hainan descent shared their experience and suggestions in investment and start-ups.

In addition, at the artistic performance, art troupes from Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Hong Kong presented the Nanyang-style shows, and gained big applause and warm welcome among the audience.
To coincide with the Nanyang Cultural Festival, Wenchang unveiled a short video solicitation activity named "Chinese Nationals of Hainnan Descent Give Thumbs-up for the 30 years of Development of Wenchang", in the hope of boosting the development of Wenchang through the widespread dissemination by overseas Chinese nationals.
