The inaugural board of directors boasts a diverse and talented lineup, with members hailing from various industries such as catering, equipment, higher education, finance and insurance, high technology, real estate and construction, health and beauty, and film and media. Notable members of the board include Mr. Fang Zhizhong, Chairman of Putien Restaurant Group, Mr. Zhou Jiameng, President of Tung Lok Group, Mr. Lin Xiangyang, General Manager of China Life Singapore, Mr. Wu Guoliang, Vice Chairman of Asia Digital Bank, Mr. Cai Huiming, General Manager of China UnionPay Southeast Asia, Professor Wu Wei, Founding Dean of Nanyang Public Administration College of Nanjing University, and Dr. Chen Jianping, Chief Expert of Big Data Analysis for Intelligent Manufacturing in the Asia-Pacific region. Despite their busy schedules and the magnitude of the responsibilities entrusted to them by the members, the board willingly undertakes the challenge, wholeheartedly contributing their efforts for the Association.

Looking back on the founding journey over the past four years, President Fang Zhizhong eloquently shared, "With the longstanding friendly relations between China and Singapore, the Putian people who have come to Singapore for development and rooted themselves here have increased. Among them are elites from various fields who have created brilliant careers locally. Based on this, I decided to establish the Singapore Putian Hometown Association, creating a platform of hometown sentiment, networking, cooperation, and development for both those who have already rooted themselves locally and those who have just arrived for development."After meticulous planning and preparation spanning three years and ten months, the Singapore Putian Hometown Association received approval from the Singapore Registry of Societies on December 19, 2019. Throughout the process, drawing on the valuable experiences of numerous associations and chambers and with the support of many dedicated individuals, I express heartfelt thanks on behalf of the advisory board and the board of directors.

President Fang also shared the vision and mission of the association, stating, "We will adapt to the continuous and close economic and trade exchanges between China and Singapore, strengthen cultural, economic, and technological exchanges between China, Singapore, and Putian, and create a mutually beneficial platform. We aim to foster friendship, harmonious development of associations, and make a significant contribution to the high-quality development of China-Singapore economic and trade relations.


President Fang Zhizhong highlighted the establishment of the Singapore Puxian (Hinghwa) Network amidst the global pandemic. He introduced the "China-Singapore High-Quality Economic and Trade Development Dialogue" as a response to unprecedented challenges, aiming to contribute innovative solutions for bilateral economic recovery. The dialogue received significant attention, with Singapore's Foreign Minister, Dr. Vivian Balakrishnan, delivering a keynote speech, emphasizing mutual learning, prioritizing quality development, and fostering inclusivity for high-quality economic and trade relations.


“The "China-Singapore High-Quality Economic and Trade Development Dialogue," hosted by Professor Wu Wei, Executive President of the Singapore Puxian (Hinghwa) Network and Founding Dean of the Nanyang Public Administration College at Nanyang Technological University, featured insights from prominent entrepreneurs Li Wenzheng, Chairman of Lippo Group, and Lin Zheyin, Vice Chairman of SF Holding. The dialogue received congratulatory messages from various organizations globally, including government entities, overseas Chinese associations, and business leaders from countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Europe, Mongolia, the United States, and more. Hundreds of letters expressing congratulations and support were received from these diverse groups.
