A Bristol businessman is to represent the city in China at the first global conference aimed at showcasing Cantonese culture and tourism.

Kam Wong, honorary chairman and co-founder of the Bristol China Partnership, will attend the Cantonese Reunion and Dream Fulfillment event in Bristol’s twin city, Guangzhou on November 12.

He will join around 3,000 delegates from across the world for the conference in Guangdong province along with state leaders and officials from China.

Mr Wong is managing director of Portishead-based DPS Global/ DPS Environmental Technologies.

He comments: “To represent the city at such a prestigious and high level convention is a huge honour and a real feather in the cap for Bristol.

“Forging links with China is vital to building understanding and creating business and educational links.

“China is the world’s second largest economy and holds huge potential for the region.”

The conference will also include cultural visits to the Xiqiao Mountain National Forest Park, the ancient Qing Dynasty town of Chikan and Hunagfeihong Memorial Hall, a museum dedicated to folk hero Wong Fei-hung.

The Bristol China Partnership (BCP) was created in 1998 to help South West firms forge links with China and to assist Chinese businesses that want to bring their products and services to the UK.
