In the 1960s, the card game "Guandan" originated in Huai'an, Jiangsu Province, and gradually evolved from a grassroots game to a nationally promoted intellectual sport by the General Administration of Sport of China. Overseas, "Guandan" has gained popularity not only among Chinese communities but also among foreigners.

In an interview with Southern Metropolis Daily and N Video on March 8th, Mr. Qiu Huakang, Vice Mayor of Huai'an, expressed his optimism about the market potential of the "Guandan" industry. He suggested unifying the English name of "Guandan" to facilitate its global promotion.

He emphasized the importance of "Guandan" as a cultural brand for cities. Mr. Qiu's proposals aimed to address new challenges and situations faced by the development of "Guandan" in recent years. He highlighted the significance of fair competition in "Guandan" tournaments and the distinction between competitive and recreational playstyles.

Regarding the development of "Guandan", Mr. Qiu stated that it is currently in a stage of rapid expansion and improvement. With tournaments held both domestically and internationally, "Guandan" has garnered widespread attention and is on its way to becoming an official sport.

As for the commercialization and industrialization of "Guandan", Mr. Qiu believes it is timely and holds immense potential. He suggested innovative approaches such as integrating "Guandan" with eldercare services and collaborating with the alcohol industry to promote the game's cultural significance.

In addressing concerns about potential addiction or negative influences, Mr. Qiu emphasized the need for responsible and regulated development while acknowledging the game's positive impact on leisure and intellectual enrichment.

In conclusion, Mr. Qiu emphasized the importance of unifying the English name of "Guandan" to facilitate its global recognition. He believes that with proper guidance and support, "Guandan" can continue to thrive as a cultural phenomenon while contributing to the economic and social development of cities like Huai'an.
