2. 2016 South Australia - Shandong Mission - delegates from our Local government, business and RDA Barossa visited China in April 2016. What are the real opportunities for local business?

Just one question left: Why do we call this event "China Awards Night"? Because we have commited businesses who worked hard on their China business strategy during the China Ready to Export Program and their efforts deserve a reward.
