My First Business Trip Ever!

I was so excited when I heard I was  going on a business trip! Work + Travel. It sounds so fun!! :D As I’ve never been on a business trip before, I had no idea what to expect or even  prepare, as it  was  just a one-day business trip. Elaine, Gaile, and I attended the opening ceremony of The Shenzhen hub of Qianhai.  It's a newly  opened area designated for young entrepreneurs from Hong Kong and elsewhere to start their businesses. I was surprised and impressed by this comprehensive “E hub” and I didn't expect all the different functional buildings, as well as serviced apartments, with such a large open area! What’s more exciting is we will have a space there soon!! I do hope this E hub can help young entrepreneurs fulfill their dreams! We also took some time to see the city!
