Sanya in Indonesia to seek cooperation in seafood sector
On October 17th, 2018, a Sanya delegation consisting of representatives from the Sanya Seafood Stall Association headed to Surabaya, Indonesia, to conduct a study tour of Surabaya’s seafood industry.
During the group’s seven-day stay in Surabaya, Mr. Gu Jingqi, the Chinese Consulate-General in Sarabaya, and Commercial Consul Wang Chun, welcomed the Sanya delegation.
A symposium on Sanya seafood tourism products was held, during which representatives from the Sanya Seafood Stall Association gave introductions on some of the city’s seafood tourism resources. Both sides expressed their hope of achieving further long-term seafood tourism cooperation in the future.
The Consul-General Gu Jingqi previously served as Vice Mayor of the Sanya Municipal People’s Government for three years. During that time, Mr. Gu became very familiar with Sanya’s tourism and seafood markets. During the talks, Mr. Gu said that Sanya should seize the opportunity to strengthen cooperation with Surabaya in the seafood supply sector. The Chinese Consulate-General in Sarabaya agreed to help build a bridge of cooperation in the tourism and seafood industries, with the goal of advancing the mutual interests of both regions.
The Sanya delegates said the seafood catering sector is a significant part of the city’s tourism industry. With its reputation for producing high-quality seafood products, Sanya is seeking to expand the sales of its fresh aquaculture products in more international markets.
