The director of the United Nations International Cooperation Coordination Bureau, honorary chairman of the United Nations Chinese Association, chairman of the Expo Economic, Trade, Culture, and Art Exhibition, honorary president of the World Wisdom Science Academy, former president of the American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai, chairman of the Global Peace Ambassador Alliance, honorary chairman of the Asia-Pacific Monetary Investment Bank, and overall consultant for the Golden Rooster Award-nominated best opera film.
Jiang Weiqing has an impressive resume of titles, reflecting his extensive involvement in international organizations and cultural events. Over the past few years, Jiang and his team have established a social network matrix covering multiple civil organizations and industry enterprises by setting up NGOs overseas.
However, the qualifications of these social organizations have been questioned, as several organization names contain the words “United Nations” but cannot be found registered with the UN. Additionally, many famous titles of social celebrities and institutions have been counterfeited to attract domestic enterprises to join their associations and other organizations.
At the end of 2022, Qiu Qiu, an international relations scholar familiar with the workings of the United Nations, discovered Jiang’s “routine” and thought it was another low-level scam involving counterfeit “United Nations” titles. However, as the investigation deepened, he became increasingly puzzled, saying, “There are both real and fake (titles), and people who do not understand international law and the international relations system cannot distinguish between them.” He told Southern Weekend reporters.
How was Jiang Weiqing’s “United Nations” matrix established?
"Baoding Village" in Africa Emerges
Jiang Weiqing’s name first appeared on the Chinese internet in 2007, according to news format.
In October 2006, the Wenqin Art Troupe of Zhejiang University began its North American tour. The following year, according to the North American Zhejiang University Alumni Association directory, the troupe’s performances lasted for a week, including venues at several prestigious American universities such as the United Nations Headquarters in New York, Stanford University, and Columbia University.
Jiang Weiqing was in attendance at the performance, identified as the “Chairman of the American Shanghai Association”. This is according to news format.
In a group of over ten NGOs led by Jiang Weiqing, “Chairman of the American Shanghai Association” has been the longest-standing identity. According to the website of the Shanghai Association of America, the organization is a local overseas Chinese civilian organization mainly composed of New York Chinese. It has been established for over 30 years and has been visited and comforted by officials from the Chinese Consulate General in New York on several occasions.
“Usually during National Day and Spring Festival, local consulates invite local overseas Chinese to participate in the celebration and express condolences,” explained Fang Ke, a retired employee of the overseas Chinese affairs system, to Southern Weekly reporters. These organizations are all established by overseas Chinese themselves, and the leaders are also called “Qiaoling.” The number of organizations is numerous and the number of members varies, with some having only two or three people. Regarding Jiang Weiqing, he consulted the overseas Chinese affairs department, but “no overseas Chinese-related unit knows about this person.”
In early 2007, the phenomenon of “Baoding Village on the African continent” caused a sensation. According to multiple media reports, since 1999, Baoding farmers have spontaneously organized to go to Africa to farm. In seven years, more than 7,000 Baoding farmers have worked in planting, commerce, and other professions in 28 “Baoding Villages” in 17 African countries. This is according to news format.
Title: Key figure in the “Baoding Village” phenomenon identified
According to relevant reports, the key figure who discovered and promoted the phenomenon known as “Baoding Village” is named Liu Jianjun. In 1998, Liu, who was then the director of the Foreign Trade Bureau of Baoding City in Hebei Province, China, heard about a village in Zambia where more than 100 people from Baoding’s Lujiazhuang Village who had participated in the construction of a dam in the 1990s were living.
After adapting to the local environment, this group of people chose to stay in Africa and teach the locals how to grow vegetables. Because of the suitable climate, the fruits and vegetables sold well, and Baoding Village became a gathering place for Chinese people. By 2003, there were already 48 Baoding Villages overseas.
In an interview, Liu Jianjun mentioned that he was crowned “Grand Chief” by six local tribes for his contributions to the African economy.
Liu Jianjun stated that more and more people have approached him, hoping to do business and start ventures in Africa. He suggests investing between RMB 200,000 and RMB 500,000 to start a suitable venture in a country such as opening a restaurant, a small supermarket, or developing land, and investing RMB 1 million could start a small factory. “With larger investments, bigger projects can be undertaken, and the China-Africa Private Sector Cooperation Forum can provide support,” he added.
Liu Jianjun, the former director of the foreign trade bureau of Baoding City, Hebei Province, was the key figure who discovered and promoted the phenomenon of Chinese farmers staying in Africa to teach locals how to grow vegetables. In 1998, during his inspection in Zambia, he heard of a village on the north bank of the Zambezi River, where more than 100 farmers from Lujiazhuang Village, Dingzhou, Baoding participated in the construction of a dam in Zambia in the 1990s. They decided to stay in Africa after adapting to the environment and taught local people how to grow vegetables. Due to the favorable climate, the village became a gathering place for Chinese people, and by 2003, there were already 48 Baoding villages overseas.
In an interview, Liu Jianjun mentioned that he was crowned “Great Chief” by six local tribes for his contribution to the African economy. More and more people have approached him, hoping to do business in Africa. He suggested that investing RMB 200,000 to 500,000 could lead to starting a catering business, opening a small supermarket, or developing a piece of land in a suitable country. If investing RMB 1 million, they could open a small factory. “Investing more can lead to bigger projects, and China-Africa Business Council can help in this regard,” he said.
Jiang Weiqing’s name also appeared in Liu Jianjun’s introduction. He said, “After reporting to relevant state departments and the chairman of the United Nations Chinese Association, Jiang Weiqing, we decided to organize a large force to enter Uganda and develop land equivalent to ten counties, just like the development of Beidahuang in the past.”
The China-Africa Business Council mentioned by Liu Jianjun is also one of Jiang Weiqing’s long-standing identities. Later, Liu Jianjun also became the president of the “China-Africa Economic and Trade Promotion Association.”
In April 2018, the “China-Africa Economic and Trade Promotion Association,” the United Nations Chinese Association, and other organizations jointly held the 20th anniversary celebration of the creation of the African “Baoding Village” and the China-Africa economic and trade cooperation project docking meeting in Baoding City, Hebei Province. In several of Liu Jianjun’s descriptions, many domestic agricultural, processing, and mining enterprises were pulled into the African investment trip.
However, in an earlier interview, the China-Africa Business Council he mentioned issued a statement at the end of 2018 stating that “I have never set up a branch called the ‘China-Africa Economic and Trade Promotion Association,’ nor have I authorized any organization or individual to carry out work under the name of ‘China-Africa Economic and Trade Promotion Association.’ The ‘China-Africa Economic and Trade Promotion Association’ has no relationship with our organization.”
The National Social Organization Credit Information Platform shows that the China-Africa Business Council is a civil society group established in Beijing in 2006. Currently, all civil organizations or NGOs registered and established domestically must be reviewed and registered by the civil affairs department.
In January 2019, the Ministry of Civil Affairs announced that after investigation, the “China-Africa Economic and Trade Promotion Association” carried out activities in the name of a social organization without registration. In accordance with the provisions of the “Regulations on the Administration of Social Organizations Registration,” the Ministry of Civil Affairs decided to ban the “China-Africa Economic and Trade Promotion Association” and related institutions, such as the “Strait Industrial Economic Cooperation Committee.”
Real and fake United Nations
Tao Yong, a columnist who graduated from the French Department of Beijing Foreign Studies University and has lived in Africa for many years, introduced in an article that in the 1960s, China had sent experts and agricultural teams to teach agricultural technology to some African countries. This official agricultural exchange and cooperation project still exists today, but on a limited scale and not for profit.
“Some people in China hope to use the mythical ‘African wealth’ to raise funds and secure projects, and ‘trap’ domestic investors (especially rural small and medium investors with limited resources and closed information channels),” he wrote.
However, Liu Jianjun now holds many “titles” and “positions”. His current positions include Vice President of the World Academy of Wisdom Science, President of the United Nations Chinese Association, President of the China-Africa Trade Promotion Association, Honorary Grand Chief of the Six Departments of West Africa, and Director of the African Branch of the China International Cooperation Bureau. Jiang Weiqing also serves as a senior executive in some of these organizations.
After 2016, in addition to a noticeable increase in his frequency of returning to China, Jiang Weiqing’s number of identities and positions also increased.
These included the Director of the United Nations International Cooperation and Coordination Bureau, Honorary Chairman of the United Nations Chinese Association, Chairman of the World Expo Economic, Trade, Culture, and Art Exhibition, Honorary Dean of the World Wisdom Science Academy, Chairman of the Global Peace Ambassador Alliance, and Honorary Chairman of the Asia-Pacific Monetary Investment Bank.
“Basically, for every piece of news about him, you can see a title,” summarized Qiu Qiu. Among Jiang Weiqing’s numerous identities, the most commonly used is “Director of the United Nations International Cooperation and Coordination Bureau,” which is also one of the few identities that can be verified.
The Southern Weekend journalist checked the database of the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and found that there is indeed a UN International Collaboration & Coordination Agency (UNICACA), registered with an email address composed of Jiang Weiqing’s name in Pinyin.
Qiu Qiu explained that it is relatively easy to apply for NGO certification with the United Nations: first, apply to establish a non-profit organization in any country, and then submit the application for review to the ECOSOC. As long as it can be proven that the organization does not have a profit-making nature, the application can be approved.
The Southern Weekend journalist also searched the registration information of NGOs in New York State, which confirmed that the United Nations International Cooperation and Coordination Bureau is an NGO established in New York, United States.
UN ECOSOC is currently the only major UN organization with a “formal framework for NGO participation.” According to the UN website, NGOs recognized by ECOSOC can participate in some UN activities. NGOs with “consultative status”, a higher level of accreditation, can also speak at every ECOSOC meeting.
“Consultative status” is an important indication of an NGO’s ability to provide advice to the United Nations within its scope of competence and to participate in global public governance. According to registration information, the UN International Collaboration & Coordination Agency is a regular NGO and does not have consultative status.
According to UN data as of the end of 2022, there are over 24,000 NGOs certified by the UN globally, of which over 6,300 have consultative status.
“From the perspective of international law, ECOSOC registration can only prove the existence of an NGO and cannot prove that the NGO is affiliated with the UN or that ECOSOC is endorsing the NGO,” Qiu Qiu emphasized.
According to an expert, some NGOs under the name of Jiang Weiqing may be misleading, as their Chinese names all contain the words “United Nations” and their English registered names begin with “UN”. “Usually, the United Nations does not allow NGOs with the words ‘The United Nations’ in English to register,” said Qiu Qiuqiang. However, the abbreviation “UN” is not prohibited.
Another NGO under Jiang Weiqing’s name, the “United Nations Chinese Association”, also displayed registration information on its official website. The association’s list of advisers includes several international political figures, business magnates, and more than ten well-known Chinese actors and singers.
However, the Southern Weekend journalist did not find the organization’s registration information in the United Nations Economic and Social Council’s database. Qiu Qiuqiang judged that if the registration information published on the website is true, it is possible that the registration has expired.
Similarly, the World United Bank and the United Nations Chinese National Culture Promotion Association both mention the words “United Nations” in their Chinese or English names, and their logos are also extremely similar to that of the United Nations, but neither organization is registered with the United Nations.
The Southern Weekend journalist sent interview inquiries to several United Nations spokespersons and the United Nations China email address but had not received a response at the time of publication.
Selection of 'Academicians'
The UN “anti-counterfeiting” problem has a long history.
In the 1990s, there were cases of criminals impersonating UN peacekeeping forces, international police or UN staff. Some forged documents to “take people” to the public security bureau, while others did it to intimidate or defraud. “These people were often referred to as ‘tiger-skinners’ by old Beijing residents,” recalls Qiu Qiu.
In early April 2023, the Mianyang police in Sichuan province cracked a case of “forging UN license plates for illegal parking”. The CCTV reporter at the UN asked the UN spokesperson about the matter, and the spokesperson responded helplessly, “The UN has been playing a cat-and-mouse game with these ‘counterfeiters’ for many years, and we have been negotiating with governments around the world on this issue. We (the UN) are also victims of fraud.”
The difficulty of anti-counterfeiting lies in the fact that as an intergovernmental organization, the UN does not have the “law enforcement power” that sovereign countries have. Even if counterfeiting is discovered, it cannot directly confront counterfeiters or impose legal sanctions on them.
In 2000, the UN issued the “Millennium Declaration,” one of its goals being to continuously strengthen the relationship between the UN and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The number of NGOs worldwide began to skyrocket, and NGO counterfeiting followed suit.
Unlike early methods such as document counterfeiting, NGO counterfeiting involves helping participants counterfeit, rather than falsifying the qualifications of the NGO itself.
In the 1990s, there was a craze for the “New York Academy of Sciences” in the former Soviet Union countries. Many celebrities and officials in these countries were enthusiastic about joining an American NGO called the “New York Academy of Sciences”. As long as they paid an annual fee ranging from a few hundred to several thousand dollars, they could obtain membership certification, and even “academy fellow” certification, which was equivalent to selling diplomas.
The “World Wisdom Academy”, in which Jiang Weiqing and Liu Jianjun participated, follows a similar approach to the “New York Academy of Sciences”.
According to the electronic registration documents provided on the official website, the organization is an NGO registered in Denver, Colorado, USA in 2020. The organizational structure shows that the academy has 5 fellows, as well as supporting committees such as the Fellow Nomination Committee, the Fellow Preliminary Review Committee, and the Fellow Evaluation Committee.
In June 2022, the academy held a large-scale selection. The official website stated, “More than 100 people were selected to participate, and 9 fellows, 2 researchers, and 1 associate researcher were finally evaluated. Certificates were awarded to the first batch of Chinese fellows and researchers elected at the conference, and many well-known figures signed up to participate in the next round of pre-selection.”
For example, a new American fellow named Huang Dizhi holds positions such as Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations Headquarters, Executive Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations Intergovernmental Organization System, Executive Deputy Secretary-General of the UN Peacekeeping Police Department, the first Prime Minister of the United Nations Starfleet, and nominee for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize. However, Huang Dizhi’s name was not on the final candidate list released by the Norwegian News Agency in 2021.
Lee Ming, a new academicianship holder, holds positions such as Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations Economic Commission for Special Zones, Vice President of the Global Chinese Union Bank, and President of the Fuxiang Tianxia Service Group.
The founder of the Academy, Feng Xiangshan, in addition to his academicianship title, also serves as the Deputy Chairman of the United Nations Economic Commission for Special Zones, the Chairman of the Council of the World Agriculture, Industry, and Commerce University, and an academician of the United Nations World Business Research Institute.
In the resumes of these three individuals, the names of institutions such as the Asia-Pacific Monetary Investment Bank, the World United Bank, the Global Life Health Research Institute, and the World Academy of Wisdom and Science also appear, which highly overlap with the organization that Jiang Weiqing is involved in.
What are the research achievements of these academicians? The “research projects” page on the school’s website is currently blank. What qualifications are required for the selection of academicians? The website has no instructions.
In addition to academia, Jiang Weiqing’s circle of friends includes people in the charity and arts communities.
Jiang Guozhen, Vice President of the United Nations Chinese Association for International Coordination and Cooperation, worked with the China Human Rights Development Foundation on a charity project called “Schools Along the Long March” in 2014.
According to the Human Rights Development Foundation’s website, the project was funded by the Jiang Guozhen-founded Fangyuan Guozhen Foundation (abbreviated as Fangyuan Guozhen). In June 2020, the foundation announced on its official website that the Fangyuan Guozhen Scholarship had been terminated and that the accounting and auditing work had been completed.
However, the “Beijing Guozhen Hope School” case promoted by Fangyuan Guozhen overlaps significantly with another project called “Guozhen Hope School” by the Beijing Guozhen Love Foundation.
The latter is a charity foundation registered with the Beijing Municipal Civil Affairs Bureau and is supported by state-owned enterprise China Energy Conservation and Environmental Protection Group. According to a spokesperson for the foundation, the “Guozhen Hope Primary School” project has been a charity project of Beijing Guozhen since 2004.
27 Guozhen Hope Schools have been established in China, with the first one, Beijing Changping Guozhen Hope School, being completed in 2004. All subsequent schools were named after their respective provinces and cities or counties, followed by “Guozhen Hope School.”
In contrast, Fangyuan Guozhen stated that “Beijing Guozhen Hope Primary School” was established in the 1990s after a social survey conducted by Jiang Guozhen and other knowledgeable individuals in society. It is the largest school for children of migrant workers in Beijing. However, there is no registration information for “China Fangyuan Guozhen Foundation” on relevant platforms of the Ministry of Civil Affairs. Business information shows that there is a “China Fangyuan Guozhen Foundation Limited” registered in Hong Kong, which is in a state of dissolution.
The head of Beijing Guozhen emphasized to a reporter from Southern Weekly that all of Beijing Guozhen’s “Guozhen Hope Primary School” cases were initiated in cooperation with the China Youth Development Foundation, a subsidiary of the Communist Youth League of China. “We have not done any other projects with the same or similar name. The foundation has never had any officials or executives named ‘Jiang Guozhen’ or ‘Jiang Weiqing’. There is no connection between Fangyuan Guozhen and us (Beijing Guozhen).”
Is the duplication of names a matter of infringement? The person in charge stated, “If the other party insists on naming its public welfare project with its own name, we have no way to operate from the procedure. We are only responsible for our own directors and supervising units.”
In November 2022, the 35th China Golden Rooster Awards, a prestigious Chinese film festival, announced the nomination of a drama film called “The Story of Gu Wenchang” for the Best Drama Film award.
The film’s executive producer, Xu Daliang, is also the Dean of the Life and Health Sciences Academy of the United Nations International Cooperation Bureau. Jiang Weiqing serves as the film’s consultant. The film has not yet been rated on Douban, a popular Chinese social media and review site, with the highest praise being “wow, they’re so good at deceiving people, they even dared to impersonate the United Nations.”
The "UN International Peace Building" disappeared in Chongqing
After 2018, Jiang Weiqing became even more imaginative and the Coordination Bureau began to rapidly expand.
For example, the long list of senior advisors included a “living Buddha” named Risang Daji. As the official website did not publish a photo of the living Buddha, it is unclear whether the name was being misused.
In addition, a woman claiming to be the first lady of Myanmar and a fairy named Lingguang Huaxian was hired as a “World Peace Ambassador” for the Coordination Bureau. Lingguang Huaxian stated publicly that she was the third wife of the president of Myanmar, Saw Maung Kha, and that there were also an older and a younger sister above her. She also claimed that Myanmar allows polygamy, not just for the president but also under the law.
The Myanmar Embassy in China, the Consulate General of Myanmar in Kunming, and the Consulate General of Myanmar in Nanning have confirmed to the media that the so-called “First Lady of Myanmar Saw Maung Kha” and the fairy Lingguang Huaxian, who frequently appears in China, are using false identities. In addition, Saw Maung Kha is not the president of Myanmar but the vice president, and Myanmar practices a one-man, one-wife system.
The Life and Health Science Academy under the Coordination Bureau, together with Beijing Zhongjianhuazheng Health Management Co., Ltd., announced in 2019 that they will jointly build a “light quantum cell detection and repair” health channel. According to their introduction, the light quantum cell detection and repair device is a fast body inspection and rehabilitation instrument developed by the Soviet Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Psychophysics. The project aims to address the health problems of diplomats from various countries stationed in China and actively promote health diplomacy. Xu Daliang, the producer of the play “The Story of Gu Wenchan,” is one of the shareholders of Zhongjianhuazheng.
Among the four international projects announced on the Coordination Bureau’s official website, the most astonishing one is a project called “China Health Industry City.”
The plan shows that the project is led by the Medical Research Center at Columbia University in the United States, in cooperation with Shanghai Zihan Pharmaceutical Technology Co., Ltd., the United Nations International Cooperation Coordination Bureau, and its Chinese Beautiful Rural Industry Office. The plan is to invest in and construct ten super-large health and tourism industry cities in China, with a total investment of approximately RMB 1.3 trillion.
The president of the Medical Research Center at Columbia University in the United States is named Dong Yangsheng (DONG YANG SHENG ANDROW), who is also the controlling shareholder of Shanghai Zihan Pharmaceutical Technology Co., Ltd. There is no intersection between Dong Yangsheng’s resume and Columbia University, and the only possible intersection is that he used to have a company called “Fujian Geda Pharmaceutical Technology Development Co., Ltd.,” which has now been deregistered.
The “China Health Industry City” project also lists numerous well-known scientists in its technical team, including several Nobel laureates.
John H. Gibbons, a renowned nuclear physicist and former Chief Science Advisor to President Clinton from 1993 to 1998, was the project’s chief scientist. According to several U.S. institutions and media outlets, Gibbons passed away in July 2015. The project was announced in 2017.
The Coordination Bureau also has various committees under its jurisdiction, such as the International Committee on Microbial Applications, the Committee on Energy Cooperation and Development, the International Committee on Jewelry Appraisal and Trading Guidance, and the Chinese National Costume Development Promotion Committee. The scope of its business is very broad.
According to business information, Xu Mengmeng, the chairman of the aforementioned International Microbial Committee, is the chairman of Dafeng Yu (Hong Kong) Biotechnology Holdings Group Co., Ltd., which specializes in microbial fertilizers. Members of the aforementioned Jewelry Committee come from a Hong Kong jewelry company called Golden Fortune.
The Coordination Bureau has also invested in real estate. In January 2019, a fake news report circulated online claiming that the United Nations was relocating to Chongqing. In fact, an organization called the “United Nations International Peace Building” was set to be built in the Jiulongpo District of Chongqing. The relevant departments of the district government signed a cooperation agreement with the US International Peace Building Development Management Co., Ltd. to select the site for the “Chongqing United Nations International Peace Building.”
According to Chongqing Morning Post, the construction budget for the building is 7.5 billion yuan, covering an area of 500 acres. The main project covers an area of 200 acres and will be built in the style of the United Nations headquarters, with a twin tower building and a plaza with 39 floors above ground. It will feature an international exhibition hall, conference hall, office building, and a five-star hotel. The supporting project covers an area of 300 acres and will include a landscape park, international apartments, a commercial street, and a food court, among others.
The legal representative of the “International Peace Building Development Management Co., Ltd.” is Jiang Weiqing. During the signing ceremony, he publicly stated that after the construction of the building, they would attract some international organizations and institutions of the United Nations to China, as well as multinational corporations such as the Fortune 500 to settle in.
In late 2022, a Chongqing citizen named Chen Ming reported the company to relevant authorities, demanding an investigation into whether the United Nations International Cooperation Coordination Bureau (UNICCB) was actually a fraudulent organization disguised as a United Nations entity.
“The Business Committee told me that the project staff had already left in 2020, and they could not continue the investigation. Whether the company is legal or not, I don’t know. When I asked if there was any loss of state assets, the Business Committee said there was none,” Chen Ming told the Southern Weekend reporter.
In response to Chen Ming’s inquiries, officials from the Jiulongpo District in Chongqing stated that the agreement was only an intention and had not made any actual progress, so the agreement would not take effect. However, two news articles about the cooperation agreement signed at that time can still be found on the website of the Jiulongpo District People’s Government in Chongqing.
In June 2020, the United Nations Coordination Bureau expanded its operations to the Parchim International Airport in eastern Germany. This operation is likely linked to Chinese businessman Pang Yuliang, who made headlines in 2007 for his purchase of the Parchim Airport, marking the first instance of a Chinese businessman buying an airport overseas.
Since 2020, courts in multiple cities, including Shenzhen, Beijing, and Henan, have listed Pang Yuliang and several executives of his company, Linde International, as individuals who have failed to comply with court orders. Pang’s utopian plan to revitalize the airport went bankrupt, as previously reported by Southern Weekend in 2021.Interestingly, the staff directory on the official website of the United Nations Coordination Bureau shows that Pang Yuliang currently serves as the Logistics and Support Services Officer of the bureau.
In 2019, during the preparation period of the Asia-Pacific Investment Bank, Xu Liang entered the bank under the umbrella of Jiang Weiqing’s UN network. However, the bank delayed signing the employment contract and repeatedly withheld employee salaries that year.
“After dragging on for three months, they verbally breached the contract at least a dozen times. The person in charge even wrote a commitment letter, promising that if the salary was not paid within the specified period, all employees would be compensated with double their salary,” Xu Liang recalled to Southern Weekend reporters. The bank not only had no deposit business, but also encouraged employees to sell wealth management products or loans outside of the bank.
After three months, the leaders involved completely stopped responding to Xu Liang’s text messages. In the end, he only received half of my wages.
In February 2023, the Shanghai Headquarters Preparatory Committee of the Coordination Bureau was established, and Jiang Weiqing’s expansion continued. On April 4th, he appeared in the United States as co-chair of a cultural event called “2023 Mother’s Day Celebration.”
Southern Weekend journalists sent interview requests to Jiang Weiqing’s registered UN email and the phone number listed in his company’s business records, but as of publication, they have not received a response.
