On July 30, International Friendship Day, Dongguan was joined by 15 government representatives and more than 30 business representatives from 7 international sister cities, “over the air” and across different time zones, at Sister City Investment & Trade Promotion Seminar.

 

 

To share opportunities of cooperation on economic, trade, and investment projects between Dongguan and its international sister cities, Dongguan hosted the first session of “Sister City Link 2021” Investment & Trade Promotion Webinar on July 30th. Wan Zhuopei, Deputy Mayor of Dongguan Municipal People's Government, attended the event and gave a keynote speech promoting Dongguans investment and business environment. Fifteen senior officials and more than 30 business representatives from 7 sister city governments, including Saadi, Mayor of Campinas, Brazil; Ulisses Maia, Mayor of Maringa, Brazil; Tigran Kis, President of the Pančevo City Assembly, Serbia; Serhii Miliutin, Deputy Mayor of Kryvyi Rih, Ukraine; Manuel Simões Correia, Vice President of the Districts Union of Barcelos, Portugal participated in the video-conference and discussed business cooperation opportunities with representatives of relevant government departments and 24 local business leaders in Dongguan.

At the webinar, Wan Zhuopei promoted the investment and business environment of Dongguan to the sister cities. Dongguan is located in the geographical geometry centre in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, creating nearly 1% of GDP in China from less than 0.03% of the land. There were 86 Fortune 500 companies invested in Dongguan, driving the city to become one of the best investment destinations in China for foreign capitals. Nowadays, Dongguan adheres to the distinctive city characteristics of “Sci-Tech Innovation + Advanced Manufacturing" and focuses on building an advanced manufacturing hub of the Guangdong- Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area.

 

Wan said that Dongguan would actively create an internal and external circular link, focus on building an open economy with unique advantages and a high-end industrial agglomeration, and cultivate more corporate headquarters and strategic industrial clusters. The city will actively set up the science and technology innovation source featuring high-end innovative resource factors from home and abroad, and forge a demonstration centre for rule convergence and strive to build a great business environment of legalization and internationalization. On this basis, Wan sincerely invited sister cities to come to Dongguan for exchanges and expand the cooperation in various fields.

 

During the webinar, government officials from seven sister cities and representatives of more than 20 companies made city introductions and business project presentations, including ACIB and Sapiens Global Management from Barcelos of Portugal, Inova Unicamp, Baita Aceleradora and Venture Hub from Campinas of Brazil, Generation Design Co. from Wuppertal of Germany, ACIM and EXPOINGÁ Agricultural, Industrial and Commercial Fair Exhibition from Maringá of Brazil, Sava Tekelija Educational Centre and Fotonix Ltd. from Pančevo, Serbia. After the webinar, representatives said they would continue cooperating with Dongguan as always, pursuing mutual benefit and win-win results and creating an excellent international business environment.

 

As a pioneer of reform and opening up, Dongguan has always attached great importance to foreign exchanges and cooperation, promoting friendly engagement among sister cities and facilitating cultural exchanges among countries. Since the first international sister-city relationship in 2001, the global "circle of friends" of Dongguan has continued to expand. It has established sister cities or friendship cities with 20 cities and regions, covering 16 countries and regions worldwide.
