Mayor Anthony Foxx and a delegation of local business and civic leaders have begun traveling to China to meet with Chinese government and business leaders in Beijing, Baoding, Langfang and Shanghai. The delegation, which will last through Saturday, November 19, is Mayor Foxx’s first international visit since taking office in 2009.
The visit will focus on economic development, including expanding investment in Charlotte, building on the City’s new EcoPartnership with Langfang and highlighting Charlotte’s emergence as a global energy hub. Additionally, the delegation will grow the relationship between Baoding and Charlotte beyond that of a traditional Sister City.
