From the Kingston Whig Standard
A small delegation from the city’s economic development agency is in China to celebrate Feihe International’s 55th anniversary and to meet with other companies interested in investing in Canada.
Donna Gillespie, chief executive officer of the Kingston Economic Development Corporation (KEDCO) and Carey Bidtnes, the lead business development officer on the Feihe project left Kingston on July 6 for a two week trip to China.
The KEDCO representatives were invited to China in mid-June by Feihe chairman You-bin Leng to celebrate the company’s anniversary and were part of a four-person Canadian delegation to the event.
“It is a great honour to be invited,” Gillespie wrote in an email to The Whig-Standard. “Feihe was interested in having us meet their suppliers and colleagues and introduce us as their Canadian partners. They are very proud of their investment in Canada which is the first manufacturing facility outside of China.”
