CORPORATE
In the last six months, senior government delegations from across Mainland China have visited the offices of John Swire & Sons (H.K.) Limited to discuss existing or potential Swire group investment in their regions.

VIP guests have included Sichuan Governor Yin Li, who met with Swire Pacific Chairman John Slosar and JS&S (China) Chairman Ivan Chu in August last year to discuss the group's extensive interests in the property, aviation and food chain sectors in Sichuan Province.


Other important visitors to the Hong Kong office have included Shandong Governor, Gong Zheng, and the Vice Governor of Yunnan Province, Chen Shun. During his visit, Mr Gong discussed Swire's aircraft maintenance interests at Jinan and the potential for extending this business to Qingdao airport. Mr Chen, who met with Ivan Chu in September, discussed the expansion of Swire's business to Yunnan, which is strategically important to China's Belt and Road initiative, given its location on the 21st Century Silk Road linking Eurasian countries.
