To overseas students, the upcoming 3rd China-South Asia Expo is a link between themselves and their hometowns in South and Southeast Asian countries.
Although they study abroad in Kunming now, they still miss their hometowns from time to time. The expo provides opportunities for them to serve exhibitors of their countries.
To the students, Kunming is a city that impresses them a lot. They would like to share their experience with exhibitors and other students of their countries who want to make business or study in the city.

Angel, overseas student from Sri Lanka
Angel saw the first snow in his life in Kunming. He thought Kunming was a magical place at that time.
At the beginning when he came to Kunming three years ago, Angel almost cannot speak Chinese and cannot use Chinese chopsticks. For so many hurdles seemed to resist normal life of Angel, he even wished to give up studying abroad.
Until now, Angel could freely stroll on any street or road of Kunming. His level of Chinese language nearly reaches the fourth level of English language for Chinese students.
He said: "Hope I could solve problems for our countries' exhibitors who will join the China-South Asia Expo this time. I could help them to sell goods with my Chinese language. I may be a business man in future to bring the best red tea and jewel to China."
