SCCCI Business Mission to China Cities: Guiyang, Guizhou; Kunming, Yunnan
Witnessed by Singapore’s Minister for Trade and Industry Chan Chun Sing and leaders of the Chongqing government, Guizhou and Yunnan together with six other provinces in western China, signed a framework agreement on cooperation in establishing “The New International Land-Sea Trade Corridor of the Singapore-China (Chongqing) Connectivity Initiative” in Chongqing on 7 January 2019. The signing of this agreement gives Singapore enterprises an avenue to export products and services, and set up business in western China by using Yunnan and Guizhou as important gateways. Leveraging on multi-modal logistics, this would open up more international cooperation opportunities for companies in Singapore and ASEAN countries.
Big Data, Finance and Modern Logistics are key industries of “The New International Land-Sea Trade Corridor of the Singapore-China (Chongqing) Connectivity Initiative”. Guizhou, one of the fastest-growing provinces in Southwest China in terms of GDP growth, is aiming to become a Big Data hub, welcoming global investors to commercialise their emerging technologies. Yunnan, with its abundant resources in land and tourism, is a favourable investment destination for the import and export of agricultural products, as well as in the eldercare health industry. Furthermore, with the joint promotion of the “New Land-Sea Corridor”, rapid development of the logistics industry in both Guizhou and Yunnan facilitates the trading of local products as well. To better understand the latest investment climate and business opportunities in Guizhou and Yunnan, SCCCI will lead a business mission to visit Guiyang, Guizhou and Kunming, Yunnan from 30 June to 5 July 2019.
During this mission, the group will call on Guizhou and Yunnan leaders, local government officials, and visit some logistics and Big Data projects. Networking opportunities with successful entrepreneurs in related industries including agricultural products and traditional Chinese medicine import and export, healthcare and eldercare, etc, will be arranged as well. We hope this mission will help participants to identify more business leads and potential partners as well as provide them with insights into the “Belt and Road Initiative” and the “New International Land-Sea Trade Corridor”.
