Hou Jie won the Gold Award for his short video “Bearer of Bangladesh & China Friendship” in the “Culture of Silk Road” Creative Design Competition co-organized by World Affairs Publishing House Ltd. and Xi’an University of Finance and Economics. The video depicts his work, life and activities in the project in honest language, expresses his love for the project, brings the viewers to experience the excitement of the project construction from his daily life, and shows the evolving environment brought by the construction of “Belt and Road”, which reflects the friendship between Chinese and Bangladeshi people.

It shows the two countries’ people getting along and learning from each other, and presents the unity between Chinese and Bangladeshi employees, which is an expression of the harmonious relationship between them in the project of Patuakhali Thermal Power Plant in Bangladesh.
