City welcomes Chinese delegation
The Metro welcomes the delegation from City of Chongqing, China at East London ICC on Friday 5 July. The Metro and City of Chongqing signed a partnership in 2017 to explore investment opportunities in the City.

Speaking at the event, Executive Mayor Xola Pakati said, "It’s been a long time since we signed the partnership, we appreciate your visit. I’m of the view that we should improve our communication given the plans we had agreed on." "We are an industrial City but not as much as we would like, we want to increase the productive capacity of the Metro and we would like to see more Chinese companies investing in the City." The day ended with an exchange of gifts.
