The Daily Journal notes a number of mayors, including ours, are planning to visit China to hopefully drum up some local business
Burlingame Mayor Michael Brownrigg and Millbrae Vice Mayor Robert Gottschalk will likely visit Chinese innovation hubs and sources of investment June 16-27. The Silicon Valley Mayors’ Delegation China Trip could be the largest-ever group of American mayors to visit China will further localize and deepen China-California relations to create technology partnerships and seek out business opportunities.
Pending balancing business-related items, Brownrigg is hoping to be able to go. If he does wind up going, he would combine it with business since he doesn’t want Burlingame to have to pay his tab for the trip and doesn’t want to accept gifts from outsiders.
I know Michael has a great deal of experience already doing business in China so he would be a valuable asset to such a trip. We may need a few people to step up and replace Leland Yee as a go-between! I have not heard much about the Millenium project at the old Drive-in but that is the most new business square footage that is on the local horizon.
