Despite the lingering impact of the novel coronavirus outbreak, Harbin, the capital city of China's northernmost Heilongjiang province, organized around 30 international exchanges in the form of online activities in 2020.

Since June 23 last year, Harbin successively held 20 cloud meetings with the mayors of its 19 sister cities in 16 countries. It hosted three online business promotion meetings with businesspeople from South Korea and Europe and overseas Chinese businesspeople and signed 31 cooperation deals.

Meanwhile, Harbin hosted nine online cultural and art-exchange activities with sister cities, attended six online international conferences and received 36 international blessing videos.

Four foreigners based in Harbin participated in the activity "I Spent the Spring Festival Holiday in China" and shot a promotional video on ice sculptures to help Harbin promote its city image.

Through the online activities, Harbin showcased its investment opportunities, consumption markets, innovative elements and policy environment. These activities played an essential role in improving the city’s overseas popularity and influence.
