Thank you. So can you define a circular economy in your own words?

Something that saves our life? We everybody should take care of that. It’s so important this moment now. Yeah.

Yulin, do you participate in a circular economy yourself in any aspect of your life?

Ah, how to say? Because my job is for plastic recycling. So majority of my time is to support circular industry or circular business? Yeah.

How did you become interested in circular economy ideas and practice.

In your opinion, can a circular economy be implemented in individual sectors or individual industries?

Yes. Is I think is for industry is so important so you can do close loop as today’s technology is not difficult. Just we need to pay attention. Yeah. Uh,
