    Is this sentence good English?

    We will continue to offer overseas Chinese citizens and institutions high quality consular services as part of their goal to benefit our people.

    No.

    I think you mean 'as part of our goal'.

    When you say "overseas Chinese citizens", do you mean people who are currently resident in China but who hold a passport from a country other than China?
