Forty stories of local inhabitants from Hong Kong have been collected for an exhibition to highlight their contributions to Shanghai's development.

The stories collected from local Hong Kongers, including two seniors older than 85 years old, will be displayed at a tour exhibition as well as various new media platforms, according to the Shanghai Hong Kong Association, the organizer of the campaign.

"The organizer aims to promote these touching stories to encourage more Hong Kongers to Shanghai and contribute to the city's development," said Edward Cheung, chairman of the association.

The collected stories range from people's livelihood, cultural innovation, economy, service industry, education, youth development and public benefit. They reflect the development of Shanghai and Hong Kong as well as the close cooperation between the two cities during the four decades of reform and opening up, the association said.

The association held a ceremony on Friday to share part of the stories and award those with outstanding achievements in the city. Vincent H. S. Lo, chairman of Shui On Land, was granted the lifetime achievement award of Hong Kongers in Shanghai.

Shanghai currently has over 100,000 inhabitants from Hong Kong, over 400 of whom are studying at local universities, according to the association.
