    In his office in Cheershal, a small town in northern Algeria, Liu Ren is using self-taught French to communicate with a local colleague. detail. Since he came to Algeria in 2009 and became an engineer of the road project of China State Construction Engineering Corporation (hereinafter referred to as CSCEC), Liu Ren has spent many years celebrating the motherland’s birthday in overseas jobs.

    “Choosing overseas means choosing a life.” Liu Ren told a reporter from Xinhua News Agency. While working in Algeria, he once worked day and night for a month and a half, and slept in a pickup when he was tired. He also fell into deep thoughts and guilt for his family, but he chose to persevere. Liu Ren said: “Since we have made a choice between the overseas work team and our own small family, it is our biggest goal to perform our duties faithfully and faithfully.”

    13 During the years, Liu Ren participated in the construction of all highway projects of China Construction Group in Algeria. Now, he is the general manager of the Cheershaler Ring Expressway project.

    Liu Ren said that over the years, he has deeply felt that China‘s international status has been rising and its role in global economic development has become more and more important, which has made him more determined to continue in Stick to overseas positions.

    On April 28, in Tipasa Province, Algeria, Liu Ren (second from right) and his colleagues were in Cheershal Talk on the Beltway project. Xinhua| The Chinese-French bilingual sign with “One Road, One Dream” is particularly conspicuous. This is the Shifa section of Algeria’s North-South Expressway, the location of the longest road tunnel and longest road bridge in Algeria.

    Engineer Shi Xuefeng was working in the monitoring room of the 4.8-kilometer-long tunnel. He recalled the construction process of the tunnel with deep emotion. “In order to speed up the construction of the tunnel, we not only dug in from both sides to the middle, but also set up a project department in the middle ravine to carry out construction to both sides.” Shi Xuefeng said that in the three years since the tunnel was built, it was hard to see sunlight and there was no network signal. Floods caused by heavy rains washed away the dormitory twice, and he and his colleagues had to live on construction machinery.

    Qiu Yong, an engineer who has also worked in Algeria for a long time, said that it is inevitable to endure hardships and homesickness when building roads overseas, but the sense of pioneering and achievement in his work has made him persevere .

    The road builders of China Construction Group, who are rooted in Algeria, have summed up the practical spirit of “hard work, skillful work and quick work” through long-term practice. Liu Ren said: “If the body is tired, it’s good to sleep, but our spirit can’t be tired.”

    Under the guidance of this practical spirit, Algeria’s North-South Expressway hopes to The French section and the Cheershaler Ring Expressway were opened to traffic ahead of schedule, and the project entered the final stage. In June this year, the ministers of transportation and engineering from 6 countries including Tunisia and Nigeria came to observe the Shifa section constructed by China State Construction Engineering Corporation and praised the section as a “quality project”.

    The experience of Liu Ren and his colleagues taking root in Algeria is just a microcosm. Tens of thousands of Chinese highway workers stick to overseas, and at the same time “opening roads in mountains and building bridges in water”, they contribute to the mutual benefit and people-to-people bond between China and the countries where the project is located.
