Parramatta. Chinese delegation visits city

More than 35 local business people attended a briefing by a delegation from the Yiwu Government, in China, on the commercial opportunities open to Australian businesses seeking to trade with China. The delegation, hosted by Parramatta City Council, visited the CBD including Westfield Parramatta and the University of Western Sydney Parramatta campus, at Rydalmere. “Yiwu is one of the world’s largest commercial centres for the exhibition and distribution of consumer goods and the city’s leaders have taken a keen interest in Parramatta. When I join with local business leaders on a return trade mission to China, in September this year, we will be promoting Parramatta as a destination for Chinese investment and trade,” said Lord Mayor Paul Garrard.
