A group of young workers from the First Company of China Eighth Engineering Bureau in Jinan, Shandong province has made great contributions to the construction of overseas projects, local media reported.

Liu Teng, 31, was assigned to help the construction of a building project in South Korea in March 2020. By implementing his COVID-19 epidemic prevention plan, the construction was carried out smoothly. The project, which will be the tallest building in Jeju, was completed on Nov 5.

In India, seven of the eight front-line managers who volunteered to help the construction of projects in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 were younger than 35 years old. "As a worker who just graduated one year ago, this experience can help me get more training and learn more," said 24-year-old Wang Siwen.

When confronting difficulties during the construction of the Heijiao Building project in Congo, a team led by Qi Changle, a project manager, coordinated local resources and expanded the labor resource pool, which helped them overcome the shortage of materials and the lack of technical employees to speed up the construction process.

Furthermore, the company's overseas technical team, whose average age is only 28 years old, has been persistent in summing up their experiences for several years, as well as in collecting overseas technical highlights to improve their overall scientific and technological work.

Through their efforts, five domestic technologies have been introduced to foreign countries, more than 30 foreign advanced technologies have been brought to China, and three achievements have been applied for international patents to date.
