The southeastern Chinese city of Xiamen is cherished by both locals and foreigners. Many of those foreigners now call the city home, and say it is quickly getting back to its old self with the COVID-19 pandemic now in the rear view mirror. CGTN reporter Lin Nan introduces us to two such expats, both longtime Xiamen residents, who are excited about the near and distant future.

(厦门坐落于中国东南部,不仅本地人对它情感深厚,许多外国人也在此落脚,把这里视作家乡。回顾新冠肺炎疫情,他们赞叹于防控疫情和复工复产的“厦门速度”。中国国际电视台记者给大家介绍两位定居厦门的外籍人士,经此一疫,他们对于未来在厦门生活发展充满期待。)

Myles Bernard Weston is an Australian pilot with Xiamen Airlines.

He flew a charter fight carrying supplies and medical workers to Wuhan, and was one of the first foreigners to fly into the city since the coronavirus outbreak.

(迈尔斯·伯纳德·韦斯顿是厦门航空的澳大利亚籍飞行员。他执飞前往武汉运送物资和医务人员的包机,成为疫情暴发以来,中国民航首位飞往武汉的外籍飞行员。)

MYLES BERNARD WESTON Pilot, Xiamen Airlines "We all know it is our responsibility to work together to improve the situation. I was really honored to be asked. And of course, I said yes I would. And I just felt that if I can do this to help the people of Wuhan, and help China fight the virus this way."

(厦航澳大利亚籍飞行员 迈尔斯·伯纳德·韦斯顿 :“我们有责任和大家一起抗击疫情,我真的很荣幸他们考虑让我值飞去武汉的包机。我义无反顾地说我愿意。我能用这样的方式,帮助武汉人民,帮助中国抗击疫情。”)

He has been working for the airline for one and a half years, and chose to stay in Xiamen during this special time.

(韦斯顿在厦门航空任职约一年半了,在疫情暴发的特殊时期,他选择留在厦门。)

MYLES BERNARD WESTON Pilot, Xiamen Airlines "Xiamen in particular, we have been very lucky. The situation has always been quite good, and I never felt unsafe. I was really pleased to see them being able to be free to go outside and return to work and return to normal life. And I see this in all parts of China."

(厦航澳大利亚籍飞行员 迈尔斯·伯纳德·韦斯顿:“我非常幸运留在厦门,情况得到很好的控制。我从未觉得不安全,我很高兴看到在中国的许多地方,人们开始外出、复工复产,生活逐渐恢复常态。”)

The resumption in business also put a big smile on the face of David Krings. The native of Germany opened a craft beer bar in Xiamen, which is popular with both locals and tourists. His business was badly hit by the pandemic. But local government reduced his rent, and he tried to offer takeaway services to get through the tough times.

(随着生意的恢复,大卫·克林斯也露出笑容。来自德国的他在厦门开了一间精酿啤酒吧,深受本地人与游客欢迎。疫情期间,酒吧的生意受到很大冲击,好在厦门政府减免了酒吧的店租,他也积极通过提供外卖服务等方式渡过难关。)

DAVID KRINGS Co-owner, Fat Fat Beer Horse "We all feel it is getting better now. Local government has done a lot to help the tourism industry during the Labour Day holiday. Visitors didn't need to buy tickets to Gulangyu island, and the local bus was free. These were very helpful to our business."

(胖胖啤酒马创始人 大卫·克林斯:“我们都觉得情况越来越好,‘五一’假期厦门政府推出了许多举措,助推旅游业复苏。游客去鼓浪屿玩不用买门票,可以免费搭程公交,这对我们的生意都很有帮助。”)

The bar saw a five-fold sales increase during the Labour Day, while Weston's flight volume has returned to about 60 percent of its normal level. Both men say they are optimistic about their lives and work in China, as the COVID-19 pandemic is gradually becoming a memory across the country. Lin Nan CGTN Xiamen Fujian Province.

(“五一”假期,酒吧的生意比疫情初期增长了近五倍,韦斯顿值飞的航班数量也恢复到正常水平的60%。两人都表示,他们对于在中国生活和工作感到乐观,因为新冠肺炎疫情在中国各地正逐渐地成为记忆。)
