Your Excellency Mr Ban Ki-Moon, distinguished guests, Ambassador Anwarul K. Chowdhury, Chairman of GFHS, Former UN Under-Secretary-General and High Representative. Ladies and gentlemen, good afternoon. My name is Stella Shiu, Chairman of SAM WA GROUP and ECPC SINO-UK ECONOMIC & CULTURE PROMOTION CENTRE. It is an honour to be invited to the 10th Global Forum on Human Settlements held here at the Golden Hall of the United Nations. It is a pleasure to meet the government leaders, business elite, leading academics and representatives of international organisations from all parts of the world! I am proud and excited to meet you all because I knew at a much younger age that this is a platform for the greatest of the great. Ladies and gentlemen, dear leaders and friends, I love you all! Before I set off today, I asked my mum what she thought brought me this opportunity. My mum said it was this great era of peace, a luxury to the people of my grandparents’ generation who lived their lives surrounded by wars and conflicts. Established 70 years ago, the United Nations has guided people out of the war, paving the way for a new world of connectivity and co-operation in a global context. This new world has been a dream for people from all parts of the world, and has been a dream for the Chinese people in particular. I was born in Changzhou, Jiangsu, a city with a rich history located at the mouth of the Yangtze River. I remain grateful to those who gave their lives in the cause of peace to make China the peaceful country it is today. I remain grateful to the Great Economic Reform that created the possibility for my family to settle in Hong Kong during the early days of the Reform. The competitive environment of the city shaped my unyielding spirit. When I was a child, the stories of the great female leaders in Chinese history, such as Hua Mu Lan and Mu Gui Ying, inspired me and taught me that Chinese women are not fated to subordination, and that we bear more responsibilities to the world than just being good wives and good mothers. Women can do things as well as men can, if not better, and can contribute to the development of human society using their talent and wisdom! This was my childhood dream and faith. After leaving secondary school, I went to the United Kingdom for further studies. I was fascinated by the undisturbed natural environment there and looked forward to China becoming a more eco-friendly country one day. After graduation, I visited and traded with 49 countries across Europe, Americas, Middle East and Asia Countries. I have been sticking to the “water and mountain” principles as practised by the great Chinese philosopher Laozi – to be tolerant and pure “like water” as he adapted himself to the outer environment, and to be determined and prudent “like mountains” as he tackled real-life problems. Along the journey, I have suffered much pain. There have been times when I was betrayed by friends, cheated by people or maliciously attacked by media, but I have always kept my head up and stayed strong. Over time, people recognised my integrity and this has opened up business opportunities for me. In 2007, I acquired the exclusive mining right to a 640 Hacters (10,000-mu) mining site in southern Philippines. This marked a crucial step in realising my Chinese dream. Since 2010, I have been working with the United Kingdom planning to develop with 5 million square meters Sam Wa ITC CHINA-EUROPE International Data & Logistics Centre in the heart of the Wirral and Liverpool Region projects in North West England. When this project is completed, it will not only act as a strong catalyst for strengthening the commercial bond between China and Europe, but will also make a positive impact on the living environment for the local people. I am also grateful to the friends from Wudalianchi of China, North Caucasus of Russia and Évian of France. The trust and support they provided allowed me to host the inaugural World’s Top Three Cold Spring International Forum. This is a new field that we are exploring now in terms of improving human living environments. The focus of the Sam Wa Group’s development strategy is shifting from mass production to sector diversification to harness cutting-edge technologies. While we seek to continue expanding current business activities such as international trading, human living environment improvement and mining related activities, we have embarked on 3D internet technologies; engaged in filming, media, culture and the development of some of the world’s leading technologies. Sam Wa’s vision is to continue its expansion and to provide services in all parts of the world and, in particular, to make a positive impact to the improvement of the world’s human living environment and to the protection of women’s and children’s rights. The poem Youth written by the German American poet Samuel Ullman 70 years ago is widely known in the United States, Japan and many other countries. I have read it many times. The important view set out in this poem is that “youth is a state of mind, a quality of the imagination, a vigour of the emotions; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life. Youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity of the appetite, for adventure over the love of ease.” According to this view, I am still very young. I hope to learn from the great leaders, entrepreneurs and friends as a little sister would do, to gain strength and courage to chase my dreams in the fields of women rights and human living environments, and to stay young forever! Under the strong leadership of the United Nations and the governments of individual nations, I believe we will see more successful businesswomen making greater contribution to the cause of peace and global economic development! Let’s join forces and together promote peaceful global development and create better human living environments for the world! May all our dreams come true and all visions become reality! I am sure they will! LAST, LET'S JOIN FORCES AND TOGETHER PROMOTE PEACEFUL GLOBAL DEVELOPMENTS AND CREAT BEETER HUMAN LIVING ENVIROMENTS FOR THE WORLD!
大家下午好！ 我是森华集团董事局主席邵瀚萱、ECPC 英中经济文化促进会会长。
感恩菲律宾那位老妈妈，是她在那2007年，把菲律宾南部一万亩矿山的开釆权交给了我，丰富的矿藏使我的中国梦有了坚实的平台。从2010年开始，我又和英国合作，在英国西北部的威拉尔-利物浦水域中心地带，规划建设500 万平方米（8000亩）土地的【森华ITC 中国---欧盟 国际数据物流中心项目】，平台建成后，不仅会对中国和欧洲的经贸发展会带来勃勃生机，对两地人民人居环境的改善也有非常积极的作用。我也感谢中国五大连池和俄罗斯北高加索与法国依云市长的朋友们，是他们相信我，让我成功主办了世界上首届世界三大冷矿泉国际论坛，开拓了为人类人居环境做贡献的新领域。
