Upper Spencer Gulf Pursues Business with China

Representatives from Port Pirie, Port Augusta and Whyalla Councils recently attended a dinner hosted by Adelaide City Council for around 50 importers, distributors and buyers from China and over 100 buyers from Shandong.

The event was part of a week-long inbound trade mission hosted by the South Australian Government in partnership with the Local Government Association.

Port Pirie Mayor John Rohde attended the event, noting the opportunities for strengthening engagement with China in areas such as investment, education, trade, agribusiness, science, aged care, water and environment, research and development.

“The China market is a key component of South Australia’s economic transition and includes everything from consumption of high value goods and services produced in this state, the supply of competitively priced inputs to increase our global competitiveness, investment into our businesses to fund innovation or expand production or inbound tourism and education and migration into our economy.”

“The three  Spencer Gulf Cities were well acknowledged & received by the delegation, with the event providing a good networking opportunity for the region”, said Mayor Rohde .
