At each destination, the work team propagandized Dalian Free Trade Zone through visits, negotiation, communication and meetings, collected information of potential projects, promoted the landing of projects and carried out fruitful economic and trade negotiations.  
    During their stay in Malaysia, the work team visited the senior management of Malaysia Jidi Group. Secretary Liu introduced the policy advantages of the Pilot Free Trade Zone to the company and highlighted the cross-border commodity display and trading industry of Free Trade Zone with the hope that the Group would locate its trade settlement center of the biopharmaceutical project and cold electric charge project in Dalian Free Trade Zone. At the same time, the work team promoted the cooperation between Jidi Group and Sunlon Supply Chain (Dalian) Co., Ltd. to import Malaysian fruits and other high-quality local products through Dalian Port and build a center for exhibition and trade of high-quality products of Malaysia and other ASEAN countries in Free Trade Zone Cross-border Commodity Display and Trading Center. The work team also visited Sunshine Bird’s Nest Group to promote the cooperation between this company and Sunlon Supply Chain and introduce high-quality traceable bird’s nests to Free Trade Zone Cross-border Commodity Display and Trading Center.
    During their stay in Singapore, the work team paid a field visit to Mapletree Group and investigated projects of logistics and warehousing equipments, office complexes and commercial complexes and accompanied Mayor Xiao Shengfeng to meet with the CEO of Mapletree China (logistics real estate) Weng Jianxing to actively promote the development of the project of Mapletree Dalian International Industrial Park and exchange ideas about further expanding the cooperation between Mapletree and Dalian City. The work team accompanied Mayor Xiao Shengfeng to visit the people in charge of Port of Singapore Authority and GLP and discuss the integration of port resources of Dayaowan Port, the cooperation in the development of the north shore of Dalian Port and the building of “multimodal transport” international hub port integrating cold chain logistics, Eurasian continental bridge and Sino-European trains and further promote GLP southern district industrial real estate project.
