As a Hollywood-based filmmaker who comes from Hainan, Ji Feilong has been devoted his efforts to promoting Chinese culture in the form of film and television arts. At the same time, as a representative of overseas Hainanese, he has been invited to return to Hainan to participate in international cultural exchanges and public welfare activities for several times. After being elected as a member of the Hainan Council for the Promotion of Peaceful Reunification of China, Ji Feilong said that he will contribute to the great cause of the reunification of the motherland and the construction of the Hainan Free Trade Port.

At the meeting, Ji Feilong presented his calligraphy and painting works, the "Flying Chinese Dragon", as a gift to the council. He explained that his name contains the Chinese character of dragon, which is a cultural symbol and emotional bond of the Chinese nation generally recognized by Chinese people at home and abroad.
