Mr. Xu Keyi, executive general manager of HWBYS, greeted the students. He briefly introduced the development history, management mission and core competitiveness of HWBYS. Since its establishment in 2005, HWBYS has insisted on its management mission - Education, Care, Science & Technology, Creativity, and Accountability.

Through developing its core competitiveness in terms of technological innovation, talents strategy, accountability marketing, cultural inheritance, Chinese medicine and football, HWBYS has become one of the largest Chinese medicine manufacturers in South China.

Afterwards, several staff of HWBYS guided the students to visit the museum, introducing the history, function, and development of traditional Chinese medicine. Through this visit, the students gained a more comprehensive understanding of traditional Chinese medicine. They also expressed strong interest in learning more about Chinese culture.
