“2015 is the year to build your business with China, as Southern China’s global companies focus on the Pacific Islands as part of the ‘21st Century Maritime Silk Road’ strategy for trade, investment, tourism and development,” says David Morris, PT&amp;I Trade Commissioner in China.

Last year, exports from Pacific Island Countries to China were worth a total US$2 billion and growth is set to continue both for commodities and specialist food, beverages and health products. Tourism from China to the Pacific Islands grew by 151 per cent in just the past year. There are opportunities to attract Chinese investment in tourism infrastructure, renewable energy, value added agriculture and fisheries processing as well as aquaculture.

PT&amp;I China is strategically focusing on building business partnerships and networks in Southern China. Beijing-based Trade Commissioner David Morris recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Director General of Guangdong Province Department of Commerce and has forged partnerships with Southern China Chambers of Commerce to explore the right business matching for Pacific Island businesses.

PT&amp;I China looks forward to helping Pacific Island companies build business connections, and looks forward to companies joining the mission on 27-31 October as we bring a Pacific Islands theme to a series of signature business events.

This is an invitation to take part in business matching, trade, investment and tourism events and to benefit from expert advice and support.  Early bird discounted accommodation is available to those who book by August 21.
