Chamber hosts Beijing delegates

Chamber hosts Beijing delegates Image

Docklands’ Chamber of Commerce has forged a relationship with one of Beijing’s largest districts.

The Docklands chamber hosted five delegates from the Chaoyang District Federation of Industry and Commerce in December.

Founded in 1951 the group has more than 1500 members and is the peak body representing the interests of small and large businesses operating in the district, reporting to the Chauoyang District People’s Government.

Docklands Chamber of Commerce president Joh Maxwell told the December 17 Docklands Community Forum that an ongoing relationship had been established between the chamber and the federation.

“We already have a member of Chamber of Commerce taking the opportunity to meet in China in the next month to discuss opportunities,” Mrs Maxwell said.

According to Mrs Maxwell, the delegates were from finance, chemical manufacturing and retail shopping centre backgrounds.

She said the president and vice president of the Chaoyang Federation were full-time employees and had a team of 11 full-time staff, while its executive council comprised 94 members.

In contrast, the Docklands Chamber of Commerce has one part-time employee and nine voluntary executive committee members.

“We are looking forward to an ongoing relationship moving forward and we have been invited to China to visit and learn about their operations and how we can do business across the countries,” Mrs Maxwell said.
