The “Chongqing Friendship Award” is renamed from “Three Gorges Friendship Award”. Ten sessions of such award ceremonies have been held since its establishment in 2002. It is the highest award of Chongqing people for foreign friends.

Huang Qifan is very familiar with their deeds: Mr. Tang Guotai devotes his efforts to make the BASF project settle down in Chongqing and thus drives the formation of a chemical enterprise cluster valued at USD 5 billion in Chongqing and promotes the upgrade of the chemical industry in Chongqing; Mr. Matsushita Yukikazu, Mr. Rosoldi Massimiliano and Mr. Tang Xiangmin have made major reforms and innovations in the production and research & development of automobiles and motorcycles and thus promote Chongqing's automobile and motorcycle industry to a new level; Mr. K.-L. Paul Sung, Mr. Zhou Jiazu and Mr. Prakash Menon have made positive contributions to the Chongqing's scientific research and development and personnel cultivation; Mr. Long has made undeniable contributions to making HP Laptop Production Project and Settlement Center settle down in Chongqing and thus promotes the formation of world-class electronic terminal industry base in Chongqing; Mr. Yao Gongda led Daqo New Energy Co., Ltd., located in Wanzhou, through the fierce competition in global photovoltaic industry and finally enables it to grow into one of the most competitive enterprises in the domestic photovoltaic industry; Mr. Stephen Antram builds Sofitel Forebase Chongqing into a first-class hotel in the world and thus the hotel was awarded the 14th place among the world’s top 100 hotels, which is also something about which Chongqing can be proud.

“The reason why I take the trouble to narrate the deeds of these experts is to show that Chongqing Municipal Government attaches great importance to this award and seriously select. Their deeds have deeply impressed me.” Huang Qifan said: “Chongqing is building the economic center at the upper reaches of Yangtze River and the open highlands in the inland, so we need more domestic and foreign experts to offer suggestions and contribute wisdom for the development of Chongqing.” In order to attract more talents to Chongqing, Chongqing has promoted the “Thousand Foreign Talents Program” to attract over one thousand foreign experts to settle down in Chongqing, thereby promoting the prosperous development of Chongqing's economy and society. Relevant departments in Chongqing will create a good working and living environment for foreign experts and international friends in Chongqing.
