It is more expensive to invite Blair to speak than Clinton
Cost exceeds 10 million yuan
The audience at the scene stood up from time to time to witness his style. A VIP guest beside the reporter shouted "pretty handsome"
Blair and Clinton
At about 7:30 last night, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Songshan Lake, Dongguan, after the speech, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair got on the bus and waved goodbye, ready to fly to Beijing at the Hong Kong Airport. It was revealed that Blair spent more than 10 million yuan before and after his trip.
Yesterday afternoon to 7 p.m., there was "a very precious memory" in Songshan Lake, Dongguan City. This is also the foreign guest who once had the highest "official title" since the 20th anniversary of the establishment of Dongguan.
It is reported that this guest with special status also attracted more than 600 local leaders from Dongguan and other provinces and cities, such as Anhui, Guangxi, Zhaoqing, Huizhou, as well as bankers and business people to attend the keynote speech of "From Greatness to Excellence".
Only one sentence in Chinese: Hello!
At 6:32 yesterday evening, amid a flood of applause, Blair entered the speech hall in a high spirit. Just like the British, Blair chose a dark black suit, a silver blue tie and a red bud pinned on his left chest. The famous VIP first conquered the women present with his youth and handsome. The audience stood up from time to time to witness his style. A VIP guest beside the reporter said "pretty handsome".
You may realize that your next speech is relatively macro, Blair starts with the topic of "people friendly": "It's a great pleasure to be with you at the bank of Songshan Lake and witness the achievements of Dongguan. I hope to come back here again. China has a special place in the hearts of my family and me. My brother's wife is a Chinese. My youngest son is 7 years old and is studying Chinese at a school in London. Maybe 40 years later, my son can also come to China and make a speech in Chinese. However, now I can only say" Hello "in Chinese “！
The entrance fee is "more expensive than Clinton"
For Blair's trip to Dongguan, the most important thing for the general public is how much money Guangdong Everbright Group, the sponsor, spent on it? Will it be more expensive than the $250000 Clinton got from her trip to Shenzhen in 2002?
On official occasions, Blair's appearance fee has also become a "first-class secret". But in private, a staff member said: "It must be more expensive than Clinton." The staff member reminded: "When do you think Blair will retire? In June this year, it is still hot!" It was revealed that Blair's trip included the entrance fee, the expenses of the middlemen and staff, as well as the expenses of inviting guests, ordering a high-quality banquet, etc., totaling more than 10 million yuan.
So, how did Prime Minister Blair form his bond with Dongguan this time? According to the relevant staff, the sponsor has a cooperative company in Shenzhen, and the company learned that Blair had a trip to Asia in November during the exchange with the Hong Kong side of BusinessWeek in the United States, so under the efforts of various parties, Blair took half a day to make a speech in Dongguan between Hong Kong and Beijing. It is reported that Blair was still in Hong Kong yesterday morning, arrived in Dongguan at 4:30 p.m., left at 7:30 p.m., and rushed to the airport to fly to Beijing.
Gags: VIP customers worry about Blair's trip raising house prices
After entering the venue, Blair appeared relaxed and excited, with rich expression, and looked around from time to time. When the host was still introducing his work, Blair, sitting on the rostrum, thought that the speech had begun, suddenly stood up and could not wait to walk to the stage. The host used his wit to resolve the embarrassment on the spot: "Thank you for your enthusiasm. Before your speech, please bear with us to say a few words." Blair came back to his senses, smiled slightly "mischievously", and returned to the rostrum where he was seated.
In addition to the local politicians, bankers, Dongguan Taiwanese Association, Private Entrepreneurs Association and other business people who listened to Blair's speech yesterday, there are also a number of people who have been to Everbright Real Estate Songshan Lake before? VIP customers who visited and were invited by the Splendid Mountains and Rivers Project. Mr. and Mrs. Liu, whom the reporter met at the scene, are such customers. Mr. Liu said: "I don't have much feeling for Blair. The cost of inviting him to come is not finally passed on to the people who bought the house? 10 million is the price of a villa." They also said that they were afraid that the developers would come to see more people after the event, so the Development Chamber of Commerce took the opportunity to raise the price.

As for China's development and changes, we have only learned in the past three or four years... China's development is a good thing for the world. Westerners should not be afraid, not a threat—— On the attitude towards China's development
For the government, enterprises and people, the most difficult thing is to recognize that the world is constantly developing. The current achievements may not be an advantage in 10 or 20 years, and we must always be ready for the future—— Suggestions on the development of Dongguan
The core content of Blair's speech is "how we develop our economy, our society, and how China and the UK coordinate the development of economy and society". He believed that a country or government should pay attention to four key issues in its development, namely, political and commercial cooperation, education, scientific and technological innovation and environmental protection.
Blair said that in any modern country, if the government wants to make social and economic development shared by the people, it needs to attract more people to participate in government decision-making. He believed that the cooperation between the government and the business community could bring great success, and said he was "very pleased" to see the success of the cooperation with Dongguan government and enterprises.
Blair stressed the importance of education. He believed that the people are full of knowledge and talent, but they should have the right to education. In the UK, more and more universities and scientific research institutes have cooperated and participated in economic construction. We hope that these European experiences can help China's development.
Third, Blair talked about the development of innovative technology. He believed that in the past 20 years, the development of science and technology was unprecedented. For the government and people, it was only necessary to constantly update their knowledge and ability and expand their knowledge. He believed that education was "more necessary than ever in history".
Finally, Mr. Blair talked about developing the economy but not ignoring the environment. He said that all parts of the world are now aware of the importance of the environment for sustainable development. Controlling environmental pollution can ensure the sustainable and high-quality life of people, improve the living environment, and is a necessary factor for the success of national development.
