Asia trade a target for Blacktown
DELEGATIONS from Blacktown City Council will visit cities in China and Korea in September, to drum up trade in the Asia-Pacific region.
A delegation will visit council’s sister city, Liaocheng City, in China, from September 6-9, following an invitation from that city’s visit to Blacktown in 2016. 
The mayor, general manager and manager events and sister cities will be included.
Council will be represented by these members at the Asia Pacific Cities Summit (APCS) and Mayor’s Forum: Daejeon City, Republic of Korea, from September 10-13. 
“The summit provides a dynamic and interactive platform for participants to exchange knowledge, identify a common agenda, develop shared solutions, improve city governance and ensure sustained prosperity,” according to a council report. 
“It is expected that more than 1500 urban leaders of business and government from across the Asia Pacific and beyond will gather for this prestigious [event]. 
“The tailored business program will permit knowledge exchange and networking opportunities for participating delegates.”
The forum is being organised in a cooperative partnership between Daejeon Metropolitan City, Korea and Brisbane City Council.
An inaugural trade delegation will visit from September 13-16 to provide local businesses the opportunity to explore potential overseas economic relationships in the Asia-pacific region.
We have been developing the proposed trade mission in conjunction with the Department of Foreign Trade, Korean Consul, Suseong-gu and interested local businesses … to leverage the benefits from our Sister City relationship with Suseong-gu via the Korean consulate,” the report said. “This is a new area for council.”
The delegation will include the mayor, general manager, the economic strategist and manager events and sister cities.
Council said synergies between industry sectors in Liaocheng City, in China, and Suseong-gu, in Korea, were cities were identified within council’s  International links and sister cities (ILSC) strategic plan. 
The delegations may include representatives of local businesses in Blacktown.
