High-level visits

In August, Zhang Zhuoping, Chairman of John Swire & Sons (China) Limited, headed a delegation which visited the Chinese People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries ("CPAFFC") in Beijing. The Swire executives met with Mr Lin Songtian, who took office as President of CPAFFC in April 2020. Mr Lin thanked Swire and its subsidiaries for their efforts and support offered during the global pandemic. Mr Zhang said that he appreciated the Chinese government's rapid containment of the spread of the virus and resumption of business activities, and the positive role that China has played in supporting the global fight against the pandemic and maintaining the stability of the world economy. He added that Swire has great confidence in China's economic future and is committed to continuing to invest in China.
