Recently, Australia’s new ambassador to China Jan Adams came to Chengdu for the first time, and talked with local media about her first impression of Chengdu, the prospects of the partnership between Australia and Chengdu and tips for Chengdu enterprises to invest in Australia.
When asked about her first impression of Chengdu, Ms. Adams expressed that she was highly impressed by Chengdu’s fast-growing economy, successful industrial innovation and rational city planning.
Ms. Adams has her unique insights into the major fields for the cooperation between Chengdu and Australia. “About 100 Australian companies have made business presence in Chengdu, involving finance, logistics, agricultural produce trade and education. The quality of Australia’s farm produce is very good, and both parties enjoy great potential in the mutual collaboration”.
As the lead negotiator of the Free Trade Agreement between the Government of Australia and the Government of the People’s Republic of China, Ms. Adams talked about the prospects for Sino-Australian economic cooperation. “The sound development of the bilateral relations helps a lot to promote the bilateral trade and investment. Because of the tariff reduction, we are glad to see the upward trend in the bilateral trade, especially in the trade of food and wine, and that of technology in the future.”
In the perspective of Ms. Adams, with investment facilitation, China has already made investment in some key projects in Australia, including that from the Chengdu-based New Hope Group. The two countries could partner with each other in the service industry and hi-tech innovation.
Currently, Chengdu enterprises are actively exploring the global market, According to Ms. Adams, there are broad prospects for Chinese investment in agriculture and tourism, including the hospitality industry and tourist facilities, in Australia, which is now witnessing a constant increase in the number of Chinese tourists. Last year, 1 million Chinese people visited Australia and nearly 500,000 Australians traveled to China, which is a big number because Australia only has a population of 24,000,000.
