Helping Kingston businesses boost trade links with China
26 July 2016
Kingston Council has voted to join the Australia China Business Council to help boost trade opportunities for local businesses.
Kingston’s Business and Economic Development Advisory Committee met recently with the Australia China Business Council (ACBC) and believe it will help local industry open up new trading connections in China.
Mayor Tamsin Bearsley said Council was keen to support local business which adds $239million annually to the local economy and provided over 65,000 local jobs.
“China is Australia’s and Victoria’s largest trading partner and a major source of tourism,” Cr Bearsley said.
“We want to help our local business community learn more about opportunities to enter this fast-growing market,” Cr Bearsley said.
“This partnership will give local businesses practical tips and advice on Chinese laws and customs and will help them hear success stories from others who have already established successful trading links.”
Local businesses will be kept informed about opportunities and training provided by the Australia China Business Council through Council’s regular Business Bulletin newsletter.
