Part I-About The Hunan Official Web Portal
As the first English mainstream media in Hunan Province, the Hunan Official Web Portal is an international window providing information about the government, services, business, tourism, and Hunan generally. It is intended to be a comprehensive platform to promote exchanges and communication with international users and serve them better.
The English version was officially launched in October 2008. The other versions are in French, Japanese, and Korean and were all launched in March, 2010. The mobile version was launched in October 2013.
Thanks to the concerted efforts from a united team with pioneering spirit, the web portal has progressed rapidly. The website is visited by users from more than 180 countries. Its Alex traffic ranks top among the English government websites in China. It facilitates wider cooperation with Hunan government departments, media, and government websites. The past ten years have witnessed our rapid development and growth. It is the second best (we won’t say which is first!) English language website of Chinese provincial governments.
It is our goal to provide timely services for those in business who already work in, or who intend to invest in, Hunan; for overseas teachers and students working, or studying, in Hunan; for tourists coming to or already here in Hunan.
Through the Portal, you will help you better understand Hunan, enjoy beauty, its profound Huxiang culture and the people’s pioneer spirit. We love showing you the real image of a rising province with great strength in central China, promptly answer all your concerns and queries, and offer you considerate services.
We are Hunan’s internet “front door” introducing it to the world. We strive to better serve users in the spirit of excellence, service, and passion. We welcome you to browse us and sincerely invite you to be one of us and contribute to connecting Hunan and the world.
