84-year-old Frenchman sees changes of a second-tier city
"I am a Yantai yin (resident in local dialect)!" Michel Humbert said in English, with a thick French accent.
Having retired in 2000, he gladly accepted an invitation from East China's Shandong province to become a senior advisor at Yantai's investment development board, which he regards not only as a good opportunity but also his "destiny".
He was generous in his praise to China, especially where the construction of railways and other infrastructure are concerned, expressing great confidence about the future of the country.
