Following on from business matching and opportunities realised during the Southern China Mission, Ms Peng has just returned to China after a highly successful investor mission to Papua New Guinea. The delegation of major companies from Shenzhen led by the city’s Vice Mayor will result in a number of future projects to assist economic development in PNG. In particular, a Cooperation Agreement was signed between the Port of Shenzhen (the third largest in the world) and PNG Ports.
Ms Peng is currently working on her next project, to match a delegation of Shanghai investors with opportunities in Fiji.
After graduating from Beijing US College of English, where she topped the year in her major, international commercial diplomacy, Ms Peng applied her understanding of international business in a number of roles. She worked in China-Africa trade and investment, project management for hospitality group Palladium and recently led her own business matching investors with projects.
Ms Peng not only manages PT&I’s China Investment Programme, but is also Executive Officer to the Trade Commissioner and the Pacific Islands Forum Chief Representative to China, David Morris. In this role, she helps coordinate the development of business networks, high-level government relationships and strategic planning to ensure PT&I China is well positioned to support the needs of Pacific Island businesses.
