Merlin discusses the group's Guangzhou investments with Mr Wen Guohui.
In October, John Swire & Sons (H.K.) Limited Chairman, Merlin Swire, attended the fourth Understanding China Conference, held in Guangzhou. Co-hosted by the China Institute for Innovation and Development Strategy, Chinese People's Institute of Foreign Affairs, People's Government of Guangdong Province and the 21st Century Council of the Berggruen Institute, the conference acts as an influential platform for disseminating China's development strategies to the world. Around 600 politicians, strategists, scholars and business leaders from 17 countries and regions took part in the two-day event and there were in-depth discussions around the theme of "New Globalisation and China's New Round of Reform and Opening-up". Prior to the Guangzhou session, foreign delegates met with President Xi Jinping at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing.

During his visit to Guangzhou, Merlin met with the city's Mayor, Mr Wen Guohui, to brief him on the group's latest business developments. Mr Wen spoke very highly of Swire's investments in Guangzhou and said that local government would fully support the group to expand its investment in the city.
