On 16 October, the Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce, Mrs Gwenn Sonck, Executive Director, participated in a meeting with a high-level delegation of Zhaoqing City, located in Guangdong Province. The Mayor of Zhaoqing city and his delegation were invited by the EU-China Friendship Association of the European Parliament. The aim was to promote Zhaoqing to foreign investors.


To date, the city has attracted 1,300 foreign-funded businesses and now has a committed foreign investment of USD8.88 billion. Overseas businesses with facilities in the city now include Wal-Mart and Leggett & Platt from the United States, Honda and Toyo Aluminum from Japan, SK and Hyundai from South Korea, as well as Asia Aluminum from Hong Kong and ABB from Switzerland. Neighboring Guangzhou and Foshan to the east and the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region to the west, Zhaoqing has both rich natural resources and considerable allure for tourists. The city has also nurtured a number of key industries, including electronics and information technology, biomedicine, foodstuff and beverages, metal processing and automobile components. As a result, Zhaoqing has become one of the nation’s most important centers for the electronics and IT industry, the die-casting industry and the building and hardware industries. Its tourism, real estate, commerce and logistics sectors have also demonstrated consistent growth.
