BAY AREA LEADERS VISIT CHINA TO FOSTER INVESTMENT AND TOURISM




Multiple city leaders from the Bay Area were in the Chinese city of Chongqing on Monday as part of a weeklong trip intended to foster investment, business and tourism exchanges between China and cities in Northern California. The May 19-26 trip was organized by Palo Alto-based nonprofit China Silicon Valley, which was formed in 2012 to improve business cooperation, create jobs, increase economic activity, facilitate investment and international trade and promote communications between China and the Silicon Valley region.

This year marked the first return trip to China since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and included Antioch Mayor Lamar Hernandez-Thorpe, Oakley Mayor Anissa Williams, Saratoga Mayor Yan Zhao, East Palo Alto Mayor Antonio Lopez, Morgan Hill Mayor Pro Tem Marilyn Librers, San Carlos Mayor John Dugan, and Victor Wang, founder and chairman of China Silicon Valley. Hernandez-Thorpe shared that he was eager to promote Antioch's economic strengths and potential for job expansion and strategic trade.
