I, as the CPN President, would take the chance to thank you all for your great supports and contributions to CPN for the last 15 years! I'm very grateful with efforts and hard work to improve CPN for a better platform and a family for our members!

I will continue to lead CPN’s work until the new president is elected. Sorry for some mixed texts both in Chinese and English due to the limited time. I wish we could make a better version of CPN's history for the years between 2003 and 2018.

Cheers for CPN!
