A delegation from Lijiang, China will visit Shepparton today.January 10, 2014 4:19am
Greater Shepparton City Council is hosting a local government delegation of six people as part of a sister city relationship between the council and Lijiang City.
The visit was part of an agreement to exchange information on local government and tourism in each local government area, a council spokesperson said.
Lijiang City was similar to Greater Shepparton in that it comprised a main city centre and several smaller regions with towns surrounding it.
The city had an ancient history and was known for its hand-made silk embroidery industry and its location on the Silk Road.
The delegation will tour Shepparton Art Museum and Tatura’s Unilever plant.
The group will also attend a smoking ceremony and welcome to country at Shepparton’s Victoria Park Lake, where a representative would plant a eucalyptus tree.
The delegation comprises representatives from the People’s Congress of Lijiang City, the Foreign and Overseas Chinese Affairs Office of Lijiang City and the Yulong Snow Mountain Provincial Tourism Development Management Committee.
