On July 19, 2017, LAGSCA officers hosted a visiting delegation of our good friends and partners from the Guangzhou Foreign Affairs Office. The delegation of seven members was led by Madame Chen Jie.
The group had flown into Los Angeles that day from our mutual sister city of Auckland, New Zealand. This trip was in advance of the 2017 Tripartate Economic Summit to be held in Guangzhou November 8-10. This summit is being billed as one that will converge innovation and Business Opportunities. Any members interested to attend the summit should contact the LAGSCA by email. Everyone here is very excited about the prospects of this year's summit.
It was a pleasant evening of good food and good service at one of the longtime stalwarts of LA Chinatown, Ocean Seafood. This dinner was another pleasant opportunity for two old friends, our Association and the Guangzhou Foreign Affairs Office to spread good cheer and enjoy informal discussion on the upcoming summit and matter of current interest.
Bilen Fraye also joined us from Sister Cities of Los Angeles. With so much going on between Los Angeles and the city of Guangzhou in the commercial, cultural, educational and scientific spheres, there will be many things our two cities can cooperate on in the years to come.
