We have accepted an invitation to participate in a trade mission to China next month, to explore opportunities to connect with businesses in China to represent our retail management software in that rapidly growing economy.

The opportunity to participate is recognition of the work of everyone on the Tower Systems team in developing and supporting a best of breed solution for small and independent retailers, an important sector of the retail economy in China.

We will have two representatives from Tower participating in the week-long event, meeting with a range of businesses in various cities in China.  Here are some details released earlier this week by Export Victoria about the trade mission:

Planning and preparation is well underway for what will be Australia’s largest ever trade mission. More than 400 Victorian exporters across diverse sectors, led by the Premier, will visit Beijing, Nanjing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Tianjin, Changsha, Guangzhou, Dongguan, Qingdao and Shenzhen.

China is Victoria’s largest trading partner and is a major engine of global economic growth.  This historic mission will allow participants to gain a first-hand understanding of China’s market dynamics and give them the opportunity to showcase their organisation and forge new connections.

The mission will strengthen the Victorian investment relationship with China significantly and generate substantial new opportunities for both economies, as well as additional exports and jobs for Victoria.
