Fujian is a well-known ancestral home of overseas Chinese. About 15.8 million Fujian communities live in 188 countries and regions across the world.


Fujian people have a long tradition of emigration. Over the years, generations of overseas Fujianese have lived in harmony with the local people, and contributed to the economic and social development of the local communities.


Geographical distance cannot break their bond with the homeland. Many of them come back to pay tribute to their ancestors in Fujian. Many follow closely and support the development of Fujian, and promote the exchanges and cooperation between Fujian and their host countries.
