In the early morning of March 21st, local time, Air China flight CA863, laden with the friendly sentiments of the Chinese government and people with Greece, landed slowly at Athens International Airport in the warm spring sunlight of the Aegean Sea,. This flight was carrying the materialsurgently required by the Greek government in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, among which 50,000 surgical masks donated by Kaichuang International under Shanghai Fisheries Group through the Laskaridis Foundation arrived on the same flight.
Shanghai Fisheries Group has a long history of cooperation with Greeks. In 2005, Shanghai Fisheries Group actively implemented the national strategy for deep sea fishery development of China by the realization of a strong alliance with Lavinia, a well-known Greek shipping company based on its internationalization advantage of “Going Out”. Kaichuang International, a subsidiary of Shanghai Fisheries Group, established a joint venture with Lavinia to carry out long-term cooperation in reefer transportation and logistics supply for deep sea fishing fleets.
With the accelerated outbreak and the wide spread of the COVID-19 pandemic globally, the prevention and control situation in Greece has become increasingly severe and complicateBased on the idea of fighting the pandemic beyond borders, witnessing the pressure that Greece is currently bearing on the pandemic prevention and control, Shanghai Fisheries Group held a shared feeling and expressed its willingness to actively take action in pushing forward the resumption of work and production while winning its own war of pandemic prevention and control. The Group took an active part in participating in the international assistance in the countries where the friendly and cooperative enterprises are located, providing assistance to the best of its ability, and entrusting Shanghai Kaichuang International to implement the relevant material raising work.
Kaichuang International had no sooner received the task of supporting Greece than it deployed quickly and, together with the person in charge of the Laskaridis Foundation in China, raced against time with extraordinaryefficiency. Although domestic mask resources were still scarce, through various ways and channels, such as advance payment and lock-in of urgently needed materials, the smooth assembly of masks has been completed in a relatively short period of time and the purchased products have met the requirements of pandemic prevention.
Affected by the pandemic, China-Greek flights were either controlled or suspended one after another, and the normal operation of transportation has encountered many difficulties. Through urgent communication and close cooperation through diplomatic channels, health departments, airlines and customs, the batch of supplies were finally loaded along with the medical supplies donated by the Chinese government to Greece into the cargo cabin of the first flight of Air China to Athens after its resumption , securing the timely arrival of the supplies at the forefront of Greece's pandemic prevention.
The international humanitarian act of the Chinese government and related companies reaching out to Greece at a critical time when global medical supplies were running short became the focus of mainstream media and public opinion such as local national TV stations and Athens News Agency, and the major media have intensively reported the event. Greek leaders and dignitaries expressed their sincere thanks to the Chinese government, the people and businesses of China for their kind support on social media platforms. Other public figures also expressed their gratitude through the Chinese embassy in Greece by telephone and mail. The Laskaridis Foundation also sent a letter of thanks to Shanghai Kaichuang International.
Stay Strong, Greece! For the Love Beyond Boundary.With pragmatic assistance actions, Shanghai Kaichuang International, as a state-owned holding company under the Bright Food Group, vividly interpreted the international feelings of solidarity in the face of disasters, the confidence of overcoming difficulties and the social responsibility of actively implementation of the construction of a community of shared future for mankind.
