Thanks to CCBDA for arranging the meet up party with the delegates from Jiangmen City of Guangdong Province from China. We were so excited to meet with old friends who took great care of us when we went for a Trade mission to China in Nov. 2009. At the party we also meet up with Mr. Dang of the Consul General office of China, Vancouver, John Yap, MLA Richmond, Richard Lee, MLA Burnaby and Catherine Yuen, Principal Consultant of Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office Canada, Vancouver and many old friends who went to China during the 2009 tour.
Jiangmen has grown so fast and it became a city district from a town. Many manufacturing facilities are located in Jiangmen. One of the largest developments is the LED market. LED lighting saves energy consumption as well LED displays are very effective for outdoor large screen size. Otherwise the car industry is also very large as they produce lots of parts for the automobile industry.
Of course, there are many art and crafts products in Jiangmen too. We had a great time and got invitation to visit Jiangmen whenever we are ready to go.
Jiangmen has most of the production set up but will need high tech stuff to help them improve and increase efficiency and quality. VBNF will find out exactly what they need and source them out from Canada to bring the products there. They also are interested in seafood and wood logs from Canada. VBNF will surely work closely with them as we have the resources here in BC.
