Darwin Port Plays Host to Rizhao Dignitaries

Darwin Port played host to an important delegation of dignitaries from Rizhao, China on 5 and 6 May, which included the Mayor of Rizhao, Liu Xingtai, the chairman of Landbridge Group, Ye Cheng, and the general manager of Rizhao Tianze Cold Chain Logistics, Zheng Qiang.

The delegation’s visit to Darwin was to examine investment opportunities in the Territory, including in agribusiness, tourism infrastructure, mining and resources and transport/cold chain logistics, in particular the development of business parks in both Rizhao and Darwin to enhance trade and investment to develop exports from northern Australia to flow from Darwin to Rizhao, to the benefit of both cities.

The visit followed the recent signing of an Economic Development Agreement between the Territory Government and Rizhao on 16 April 2016.
