A number of notable people were born in Yancheng. Qiao Guanhua (1913-1983) and Hu Qiaomu (1912-1992) are two great examples.
Qiao Guanhua was the Chinese Foreign Minister during the 1970s and he was one of the most famous dip-
lomats in Chinese history.
Hu Qiaomu served as member of the Secretariat of the CPC Central Committee, Director of the Party Literature Re-
search Center of the Central Committee, Director of the Party History Research Center of the Central
Committee and President of the Chinese Academy of Social Science in the 1980s.
They were always referred to “Two Qiaos” of Yancheng.
