Tsinghua graduate hopes mainland move helps bring prosperity to rural Xingsheng village

Since graduating from Tsinghua University in 2021, Tong Chun-wai has devoted himself wholeheartedly to bringing prosperity to rural areas in Ningxia Hui autonomous region.

The 36-year-old was born in Zhongshan, Guangdong province, and moved to Hong Kong to attend junior high school in 2001. He started up his own technology consultancy company after earning a bachelor's degree at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He was later admitted to Tsinghua University and received his master's degree in politics and international relations in 2018.

"I have had very strong feelings about the motherland since I was young. I spent my childhood in a small town in Guangdong's Dongguan city, and the living conditions were not that good at the time. I saw prosperity after moving to Hong Kong, and I've made up my mind to make my own contribution to China's development, especially in the backwater areas," he said.

In 2021, Tong became a civil servant in Yinchuan, Ningxia. He then took a temporary position as a village official in the city's Xingsheng village in November that year.
