简介丨Resume


Jorge Chacon came to Jinhua in 2013 for the first time and has been living here for several years. "The city has developed very rapidly, and I have witnessed its transformation as it has become more beautiful and more modern," said Jorge. 



从2013年第一次来到金华,Jorge已经和金华这座城市结缘7年。“这些年金华发展非常快,我亲眼见证金华变得越来越美丽和现代化。”


In 2000, Jorge worked as quality management manager at an American bag company. In 2015, the company launched a long-term partnership with a Jinhua-based bag factory, and he was sent over to be in charge of quality control and supervision. He also became responsible for the global purchasing of raw materials. 



2000年Jorge在美国箱包厂担任质量管理经理。2015年起美国公司决定下长期订单到金华皇氏箱包公司,他就被派驻到该公司控制、监督产品的质量,并负责原材料的全球采购。




Impressed by hospitality of Jinhua people 

金华人的热情友好让人印象深刻



After seven years in Jinhua, the warmth and friendliness of locals is what has impressed him the most. He has made many good friends over the years.



在金华待了7年,最令Jorge印象深刻的就是金华人的热情友好,他结交了不少好朋友,珍贵的友谊让他觉得很幸运。


Jorge had to commute between Jinhua and Yiwu for work. At the time, the two places were connected only by bus, and the trishaw drivers at the stations knew him well. Every time they saw him getting off the bus, they would call out "Mexico! Mexico!" and take him either to the factory where he worked or to his home.



Jorge的工作经常要在金华市区和义乌之间往返,之前只有大巴时,汽车站附近的三轮车夫都记得他,每次一看到他下车就会叫“墨西哥!墨西哥!”,然后送他到厂里或住处。


Jorge was also impressed by the wonderful food and customs in Jinhua. Despite differences in eating habits between Mexico and China, he likes Chinese food very much, especially the street food and snacks, such as steamed buns and malatang. He is also fond of Jinhua's steamed bread with braised pork. 



除了热情友好的金华人以外,金华的美食美景和风土人情也给Jorge留下了深刻的印象,虽然墨西哥和中国的饮食习惯区别很大,但Jorge非常喜欢中国的美食,特别喜欢街上的小笼包、麻辣烫这些小吃。在金华,他也有很多机会去尝试各色美食,Jorge说,他最喜欢的就是金华的馒头扣肉。



Appreciating Chinese family values and 

traditional culture

赞赏中国人的家庭观念和对传统文化的传承



Jorge believes that both Jinhua and Chihuahua are extremely beautiful. He is particularly struck by Chinese people's deep commitment to family and to the transmission of traditional culture. In China, family members reunite frequently and are willing to help each other in need.



谈起金华和家乡的差异,Jorge觉得金华和他的家乡奇瓦瓦都是非常美丽的城市。他非常欣赏中国人浓厚的家庭观念和对传统文化的传承,在中国,家人之间经常团聚在一起,有事情都会相互帮助。


Jorge also likes to travel and explore. He thinks that Jianfeng Mountain and Shuanglong Cave in Jinhua are particularly beautiful and hopes to share them with people back home. He also wants to introduce Cancun, a city in southern Mexico, to his friends in Jinhua. The beaches there are very beautiful, while in northern Mexico, where Chihuahua is, the old pyramids and Native American culture are worth visiting. He said he hopes his friends in Jinhua will have the chance to visit his hometown.



Jorge喜欢旅行,他觉得金华的尖峰山、双龙洞等景区的景色都特别美,所以他很希望能将这些美景介绍给家乡的人。他也想把墨西哥南部一座叫坎昆的城市介绍给金华的朋友,因为那里有非常美丽的海滩,而在墨西哥北部,他的家乡奇瓦瓦则可以参观金字塔,领略印第安文化等,希望金华的朋友们有机会能去他的家乡做客。



Hoping his family will visit Jinhua

想让家人来金华看看





Over the years, Jorge has traveled the world for work. He used to like this kind of life, being on the move and meeting a lot of different people. But after he gets married, he wants to have a home where he can settle down. He said he hopes to live a life in which he can go grocery shopping by himself and cook at home after work.



因为工作需要在全球各地出差,这些年来Jorge的足迹踏过许多国家。Jorge说,婚前他很喜欢这样的生活,可以一直接触新的人,去新的地方,但在结婚之后,他更希望能有一个可以定居下来的家,他很希望能过上每天自己出去买菜、下班回家做饭的生活。


Speaking of his plans for the future, Jorge said he wants to continue to work with Jinhua. It is located near Yiwu, Taizhou, and other raw material-producing areas, and is well-connected to the ports of Shanghai and Ningbo, making it very convenient. The pandemic, though, has brought about some inconveniences in Jorge's work. He plans to stay in China for the rest of the year and expressed hope that in the near future the situation will improve so that his family can visit him in Jinhua. 



谈到未来的计划,Jorge打算继续在金华的工厂下订单,因为金华的工厂非常配合,离义乌、台州等原材料产地也很近,临近上海港、宁波港,也让金华工厂的海上物流非常方便。不过疫情给Jorge的工作带来了很多不便,今年Jorge打算一直留在中国,他非常希望未来全球疫情的情况可以好转,让家人也能来金华看一看。
