On May 24, 2017, the Boao Forum for Asia held its 2nd member and partner activity at Great Wall Chateau Sungod in Huailai County, Hebei Province with the support of COFCO, bringing together 40 representatives of BFA members and partners, including Tata Group, Ericsson, Qualcomm, Hanhwa, Riverside, the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry, Microsoft, China Life, Anbang Insurance Group, CCB, JPMorgan Chase, Didi, Xcoal and Song Dynasty Royal Kiln. Other participants included Zeng Min, Vice President of China Foods Limited and He Jiakui, General Manager of Huailai COFCO Great Wall Sungod Chateau Co., Ltd.

Participants visited the chateau's museum, underground wine cellar and wine experience center. Guided by a professional wine taster, participants sampled various categories of wine produced by Great Wall, which were given a thumbs up.

The Great Wall Chateau Sungod was built in 1979, covering an area of 185 acres. The unique micro climate and soil of the basin next to the Sanggan River in Shacheng Town, Huailai County makes the place an ideal place for growing vines and therefore turning Chateau Sungod into the best source of fine wine in China. Great Wall, a subsidiary of COFCO, has been supplying wine for VIP guests attending the BFA Annual Conference for 9 straight years.

Impressed by the chateau's state-of-the-art facilities, elaborately arranged exhibition, elegant atmosphere and detail-attentive service, participants of the tour compared the site to world-famous chateaus and said it not only showcases China's unique wine culture, but also provides an invaluable social platform for BFA's stakeholders.
