On May 28th -June 7th, we are honored to host the Mayor of Sparks City, Nevada's business outreach mission to China that will target several major Chinese cities-Beijing, Tianjin and Dalian City- for purpose of developing new trading and investment activity. SATDA issued the invitation and sponsored this mission -making all the arrangements with city leaders and the actively interested companies that the delegation will visit while in country. We know these cities, and SATDA member companies within these cities, will be extending the warmest welcome to the Mayor and his entourage.

Sparks City is the fourth largest city in Nevada. Sparks possesses powerful business core area (region), and has already established many new business and trade development relationships with its many neighbor cities and regions, both domestic and overseas. Their purpose for the visit is two-fold. The first is to investigate interesting investment opportunities in China, and the other is to stimulate Chinese to invest in various fields in Sparks City and Nevada. The visit will identify/inform on numerous areas of business information and opportunities in several industries that are of mutually interest to both America and China. The visit will also build a good foundation for expanding economic activities interaction between these Chinese cities and Sparks City in the future.

During their visit, the members of the Mayor's outreach mission will have meetings and seminars with these Chinese cities' government departments and major trade-related government officials, entrepreneurs and economic development advisers to discuss the development of business, trade, and investment cooperation between their cities and the businesses within their cities. They will also visit some economic and technologic development areas, representative enterprises, and famous historical and cultural landmarks.
