Chinese officials hosted by EDC

August 03, 1998

Eight members of an Anhui Provincial delegation from China attended a reception this week hosted by the Hagerstown-Washington County Economic Development Commission.

The visit included presentations by Washington County and Hagerstown officials, the Hagerstown-Washington County Chamber of Commerce, the Washington County Convention and Visitor's Bureau, and members of the Economic Development Commission.

Interested in reform, the Chinese delegation was educated on county and city budgeting issues, economic development, and governmental policy.

The Anhui Province is a "Sister State" of Maryland. An agreement between the two includes the sponsorship of seminars, entrepreneurial training, economic development cooperation, and trade projects.

The visitors included Chinese mayors, utility CEO's, economic development officials and foreign affairs deputies.
